My problem lies with the over zealous nature of enforcement. Last year while surf fishing near Ft. Macon, I was approached continually by an enforcement officer. He was checking licenses, fish, and fish size.
I'm in my 60s, and after a lifetime of coastal fishing, I must say the last trip was the last one. Too bad, and I'm sure the aggressive enforcement is driving away more than just me.

It used to be when you went fishing you could keep whatever you caught with no problems. Now it's got to be a certain size, weight, lenghth, etc. Hell that ain't right. Whatever you catch, if you want to take it home to eat or show off, so be it.
