closed July perch season
Not really trying to get anything fired up, but I really do want to know...
Does anyone understand, or can anyone explain, the reasoning behind closing perch season during July? Is there any solid science that makes this a defensible idea, or is it another wacky idea from the faceless bureaucracy?
Maybe it's just me being a skeptic and one of the few lacking a fisheries management degree, but it just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. July is a great time for LF fishing.
