Gamefish status for specks and reds in NC?

There is legislation before the NC house to list red drum and speckled trout as gamefish, which means they would not be able to be sold or otherwise marketed here. It is listed as H918 and you can find out more about it from the Coastal Fisheries Reform Group . Contact your representatives if you live in NC or even if you don't. Tell them you support this legislation.
If you want to see what kind of thinking we are fighting against here on the coast read this editorial from the Carteret News Times . Make sure you leave a comment. In my opinion, you are sure to be appalled at the poor writing and lack of basic journalism skills (at the very least).
