All those boats whipping around at a top speed of 3.25 mph makes for a horribly unsafe environment...youve got to be kidding me...and if you put more people in a boat you get charged more?...maybe you should weigh us and charge by the pound!...you'll make a mint off my boat!...why dont you just cancel it and get it over with?...youve cancelled everything else fishing wise!...that way you can do 37 more triathalons!


WHAT A JOKE!

A limit on trolling boats to keep the waters safer, eh?

In the same vein, why don't we put a limit on how fast you can reel in your line? Or perhaps we could make the waters safer by putting a speed limit on the bass. Those crazy a-hole bass flying around, causing unsafe waters... who do they think they are

Maybe put a limit on how fast shore fishermen can walk? More than a step every three seconds.... you could run into someone... that's terribly unsafe.

Poor taste.... Neither have anything to do with the other.

And yes, I'm a little sensitive to the situation.
