I am saddened when I hear another charter captain has hung up his spurs. As Sec/Tres of the Florida Guides Association I have been hearing similar stories to the one I heard today. Today's notice was simple, "I have decided to hang it up on the guiding. The last couple of years have went downhill and I just think it is a good time to get out." This is only one of many I have heard this year but they all have the same result. I just have to wonder if the fisheries management folks have any idea, or if they care, about the economic repercussions of their actions.
