One big problem is how the fisherman perceive the big fish now... There are places where the Jewfish are apparently back in big numbers... Some of the most heralded fishing spots have stories about them now; like how on some days, fisherman couldn't even get their bait to the bottom without hooking a Goliath. Between losing their baits, and having to immediately get the Goliath off the line, fisherman are not happy with the situation as it is. Many are actually excited


about how "the JEWFISH ARE BACK", and speak "loudly and often", about how it's about time the law changes so they can begin fishing for them again..
