FWIW, I've seen the numbers and almost all of the proposed slot limits would result on about a two month season under current quotas.

Well, yes. I'm not writing the regs, nor am I representing anyone. I'm just saying that for my personal needs, I like to catch fish and I fish frequently (but not >once a week), so that I rarely put fish in the freezer. So for some of us, and clearly not others, I put a higher premium on how much I catch over how much I keep.

But point well taken. "Who needs to keep 4 fluke" should more properly have been phrased as "I don't need to keep 4 fluke."

On the other hand, what's the use of a high bag limit if you never reach it. I'd rather have everyone come away with a little, than come away empty, despite the possibility of a 4 fish limit. I've been on party boats full of sharpies, where few caught more than 2 keepers and often where hardly anyone catches a keeper and we switch to porgies or sea bass.

They don't sound like "sharpies" to me
