I just spoke to David who told me a Yellow Perch tournament is scheduled for this weekend up near Herb’s Tackle Shop in North East. It’s being called the CCA MD “Yellow Perch Appreciation Day” and is being held at North East Park from 10:00 AM till 2:00 PM. Registration for the tournament costs $5 for individuals and $15 for families. Before you head north, be sure to sign up on the National Saltwater Angler Registry. For more on the registry and how it will benefit every man, woman, child and fish give Chris Dollar’s Article from The Capital titled; “Outdoors: Registering Saltwater Anglers Should Give State More Clout”. For more on the, MSFCMA, (Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act), and it’s role with other initialisms like PIAFA, WPSFF, WPC, SFA, NAS, NMFS, NFMP, HSDMPA, HSDFE, EEZ and it’s implications on conservation and management of our valuable fish resources, check out the handy UNMCWL, (University of New Mexico Center for Wildlife Law) synopsis.
