Fishing for fun and fishing for profit are two different sports and should be regulated as such.All tournements should be licenced and treated as a buisness with a fee going to DCNR.They may not KEEP as many fish, but they do harrass and kill more than they admit to.Creel limits are set by DCNR based on the recreational fisherman . Very little of the money brought into the state by the big tournys goes to DCNR.If you fish Tournements you should have to pay more for your license as you use the resource more.I think the fishing for all would improve if the number of small tournements were controlled .
