I hate to badmouth TWRA - especially their biologists - because for the most part they are a very professional group that tries extremely hard to be good stewards of the resource.

Unfortunately, the TWRC - the Commission - seems prone to the worst sort of politics, especially where sucking up to commercial fishermen is concerned.

I had a sit down with a commissioner yesterday evening and he said that the TWRA biologists were the modt arrogant m-fers he had ever been around and would not listen to any advice or suggestions. Essentially if they didn't believe in something then there was no way it was gettin passed.

Although I didnt always agree with decisions made by TWRA when they made all the decisions, I always tried to abide by them and respected their decisions. They are educated and gather a lot of info for making their decisions. The TWRC on the other hand, well, I'll just keep my mouth shut. I don't want to get riled before I go to bed.

Well,

I read where the good ol commission had the opportunity to fix what they broke and didn't.

Figures. TWRC is now the laughing stock of the fisheries world. At least with biologists of other states. Actually, surrounding states are pretty ticked at this.

CH,

Although I think they probably do 90% of the time, they sure didn't in the Lock 5 case. This case really has nothing to do with sportsman, it has everything to do with a single animal/fish that will become even more rare in Tennessee waters.

As I said, neighboring states are ticked about this as it affects them also in many ways.

I would bring a federal lawsuit if thats even possible. This will affect the fisheries of other states. This is ridiculous, and a bunch of BS.
