I have heard through the grapevine that some Sporting Goods Stores In Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, Grand Junction, Cortez, and Durango are Uniting with a couple prominent anglers on a petition and ballot measure drive, so the new plastics rule is likely going to be very short lived.jamiehughes said:don't know about the new rules but if you fished no bait lakes last year, some sizes of the ratso's and shrimpo's were not the required 1 1/2 inches long that they had to be to not be considered bait. all this gibberish that they put in the rules booklet, most rules (especially about artificial lures)you read them then look around and say to yourself" was that wrote in some foreign language"? you have to read it like 10 times to try and decipher what the hell they are saying.. i see it as bait is bait, lures are lures. just because it is under an inch and a half i never understood how that made it not artificial anymore?? sorry about the topic buster.
