Rule to Change: Two Pole Endorsement
New Rule Proposal: No cost to people 60 years and older. Also no cost to handicap people. Limit this to people fishing from boat (only two people in the boat). Also fishing from dock or shore, or drop the price of the extra pole to $6.50 for all people fishing.
Why the change is needed: Would add more enjoyment for older people. Also would get more older people more interested in fishing. Could help stop people (fishing with)two or more poles illegally --As is done on some resort rocks, boats and shore fishing.
