To the editor:
I have been a Brunswick County resident and charter boat captain for more than 43 years. I ran my offshore/inshore fishing boat, the Sea Hawk III, until 2010. I would still be in that business if the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries had not started making such poor regulations. Now it is targeting flounder.
This month I had four flounder trips when we caught 42 flounder, 29 of them keepers. Marine Fisheries is saying there are no flounder left, just like it said about sharks.
