And the second amendment was not put in to protect duck hunters. Or homeowners from intruders. It was put in to protect the people against an oppressive and tyrannical government.

Just keep that in mind.

That is SOOOO not how I operate. I only challenge those who put words in my mouth and demand I defend comments and stances I never made or took.
So keep me out of it, please.
Ya, okay. I'll agree that you don't belong in it.

Sure. But that's just the nature of fishing. Not some artificially imposed arbitrary limit. At least without that limit, I have a shot at having a really good day. 10 little fish does not excite me. I won't go out on boat like that again.
<quoted text> Faced with the limit I was not aware of, if I "just wanted to fish", I'd rather save my money and go fish off the pier or off the jetty.

I don't call myself a fisherman. My fun is had by catching.
Well you are surprised because you don't fish. That's kinda like someone who hasn't ever bowled being upset that he fouled for stepping over the line.

I've never fished anywhere where there was not a limit ... before they had limits there was over fishing and if you were disappointed catching 10 little fish, imagine catching 2.

My grandpa took his family to Canada for a week or 2 week every year in the summer to Eagle Lake ... this would have been in the 50s and 60s ... by the 70s and 80s the lakes were all getting fished out and the lakes up there are HUGE. If you don't have limits, it sux.

Nowadays they have limits and they have the "slot" in a lot of lakes ... if fish is a prime breeding size, you can't even keep it no matter if you are at your limit or not. You can keep trophy and you can keep smaller ones.

You need conservation. Without conservation there is nothing. History has shown this time and time again.

There is probably a catch limit even off the pier and the jetty. Race might know.

But it would be much easier to swallow if I'm not shelling out $80. Additionally, I can take my catch back to the cooler in the car, go have lunch, come back later and fish some more starting from zero.

Sub,
I like pontoon boats puttin' around the lake close to shore every evening during the summer at sunset.
They remind me of a time gone by. A lost innocence.
We used to go to a place in Minnesota called Lake Lizzy when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
Those are some of my earliest memories....

Are you guys talking about a catch limit or a Keep limit? I am not aware of a limit on how many fish you can catch vs how many you can keep.
Also, Tonka is talking about a drift boat fishing, which is really pretty fun if you pack some sandwitches and beer. If you get the chance, go for a night expedition, the ocean is beautiful at night.
Usually the captian is going for a specific species of fish, and in that case a catch (or keep) limit is justified. If you have 60 people on a boat thats 600 fish (of a single species) so yeah, limits are needed. But if you catch and release everything, I dont believe they are going to stop baiting your hook after your 10th catch.
It's all about not abusing the system.
As for the pier fishing, I honestly dont know. The fish caught is so varied because you are in one place and the fish move past you. Even if a school fo fish run into the pier, it is unlikely you will be able to catch 10 yourself before they move on. Nobody checks your cooler, so I guess you could though.

Like I said, at night, just to be cruising out on the water, its worth the $80.

Thanks so much....takes me back to the adventures of 13-14 year olds, a group of us catching the L at Richton Park and going into Randolph station.....the flower stalls and coming out into the hugeness that is Chicago....a mixture of smells slam into you, bus fumes, hotdogs and steam.....we loved eating lunch at Tad's Steakhouse.....hitting S.State Street, where they had Bailey's Army-Navy Surplus...a must for teenage boys, especially before girls and cars, not necessarily in that order...lol...Good Times....

I think you meant the IC (Illinois Central) train. The old cars that had the straw seats that destroyed women's nylons and windows that opened so you could get the full blasts of hot air and dirt? I actually have a picture of this old car.

You guys sure had some big pocket money or was the steak house the ones that sold steak lunches for about $2? Steaks soaked in tenderizer for about a week...those were good. You never went into the library I suppose....:)

Wow. There is so much that hasn't changed. I am going to send this to my 83 year old father. He would have been 18 when it was shot and was working at his father's restaurant which was on the route up Michigan avenue.

Thanks

You were in Chicago for the el. Or NY.

BTW, it still smells the same down where the trains come in at Randolph.

You don't like the NSA tarcking your emails and phone calls?

You don't like Acxiom aggregating your consumer/computer data?
