THE REASON WHY BAIT GETS HARDER & HARDER TO FIND...
With 85% of the coastwide quota of Atlantic menhaden now essentially memorialized for the reduction industry
out of Reed$ville, VA (sorry for the earlier typo folks), local bait harvesters along much of the Atlantic states
may be scrambling to meet demand in the coming months. Gotta wonder what the fall 'chunkin' season is
gonna look like if those fractional TACs are met before 2013 is out!
