Harpsell lobsters set fire to the nets this weekend. I do not forgive them for an easy job, but I do not know which recreational fisherman would ever need a full net. Who has a basic overview of casting-Net regulations for this state?

Fish released in this way are not included in the catch or possession restriction, provided that the person did not have the legal catch limit at the time of capture. I asked the question last year and was told that you have to have a commercial license to use a casting net for herring. I don`t know anything about Macs or Alewives. Check the DMR site and see if there are any rules out there. What comes to mind when you think of fishing? Patience, relaxation, challenge and memories are a few words often associated with fishing. All this and a sense of responsibility, preservation and preservation can be found on this page.
