A freind just sent me this today. It was submitted to the International Pacific Halibut Commission by a commercial fisherman requesting that a regulation be put in place to prohibit the use of electric reels by sportfisherman.
Does anyone know how these things make it from requests to regulations? How do you lobby against something like this? I do know that there is strength in numbers, so anyone that would like to use electric reels in the future probabily should get vocal on this now!
