  1. Why don't these troopers cite some of these draggers who pull up thousands of pounds of every imaginable type of sea critter regardless of whether they are in season. No they are out there citing poeple for a couple of octopus or checking someone for a king stamp (when the draggers caught 52,000 of them in the Central Gulf last year--go figure!
