State Fish Pier

Many days you can drive by the State Fish Piere on a beautiful day and the boats will be tied to the pier.  10-15 years ago you never would have seen boats tied up on such beautiful days.  The guys would be out fishing. 

Between Federal Regulations, and an aging fleet of skippers you see this more and more.  We have a handful of great young skippers coming up but it is but a handful.  It’s going to be scary in another ten years when the last of the big generation of skippers are retired and the permits that they fish are gobbled up and consolidated.  This huge harbor under the current regulations will have great difficulty supporting such a contracted industrial base.
