    It depends on the game. I truly believe there is a game out there for EVERYBODY and it's just a matter of finding it. A good game gets your heart racing and your forehead sweating, it's a real rush.
    Sounds like deer hunting to me.

    If there were say 100 big mouth bass left in the US and there was 2000 sport fishermen trying to catch those 100 fish that were left. Would you want someone regulating the number of fishermen, so that next year their would be at least 2 big mouth bass left to fish?

    Or should it be a free for all, during the short period of time that the big mouth bass were still around.

    Afterall they could go after cat fish after the big mouth bass are gone
    How about we make sure next year there are at least 101 fish left. And the year after that at least 102. And so on and so forth so that our great grandchildren can catch big mouth bass too.

    Get them out of your freezer and let them go. Next thing you know they'll be banning As-salt rods.

    Well.. your definition of liberty obviously differs from mine.. so I'll explain Liberty in lieu of looking it up for yourself..

    If I want to do something the does not infringe someone else's rights and it is not an enumerated power under the Constitution, it is a Liberty...

    NO we would pass creel limits and organize fishing associations... wait a minute.. we've already done that and it works GREAT!

    This is not about fishery management.. it is about UN control of our waters!

    The power to regulate fishing is clearly constitutional.

    But you're missing the bigger picture, of course. If you catch all the damn fish, others lose their liberty to catch some - and yours too once they're gone.

    I seriously think there is going to be a day when we are going to have to tell the U.N. we're out and they are on their own, they are incompatible with the American lifestyle, much like Obama and other progressive globalists within our borders.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Give it a rest already.

    When did 90% of the rightwing turn into a giant, internet-rumor fueled paranoid conspiracy theory?

    Did anybody read this and look for specifics? Do you even know what "rights" are being "taken away?"

    There aren't any.
    That's the first thing I do when I read an article like this.

    First off, it says "could" limit fishing. If it did limit it they'd be pointing to the specifics inside any particular bill. This is the same as all the paranoid people screaming about him taking our guns, closing down farmer's markets, banning the sale of pets across state lines, etc. It's all BS.

    Re: Obama government to regulate sport fishing

    Got some news for ya. Sport fishing has all ready been regulated beyond rediculous.

    Just a couple of years ago the powers that be decided that I can only take two gag grouper and 2 black grouper and no more than 4 total in the combination. And now they gotta be 22" long. Gotta use circle hooks.

    Hardly worth the 50 mile offshore trip.

    This went down before Obama too. Under Bush, if I recall. Where were you then?
