It is a sad day to lose the derby. That is the first of many take away from the fish huggers. I'm sure there are a few jumping up and down for joy at the change. As I have said "its a business". Once it is taken away it is even harder to ever get it back. Look just at the lost license sales for that weekend. Look at the fishermen that will go to NY , VT for their derby weekend. Guess what ? after catching kick ass fish out there..... gone for good ! I will not understand this put in small fish and expect the lake to produce the legal fish mentality. Were not in Labrador Ever since the 50's it has been put n take fishing. As a regular on the lake it might be better for me down the road but I was on a trout pond here in NH before and they took away gas motors Better for the fish and the (environment) Trophy pond ? same old put n take ! Nothing changed! And still no gas motor.
