Dar wants a fishing licence...?

Post by kona-ulua-style » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:45 am

Expect a new bill in 2019 by DAR... They need more money ..by raising funds thru by charging for fishing licences....
No one knows the tire count of shoreline fisherman ..one reason...
Need more funds for research...data ...studies....0114 % of the general fund goes to the state fishes...division..presently..
Expect it to pass...? Guessing $20-$25..for Hawaii outer state maybe $35-$45..?
FYI Your cost will go up..especially for families with many kids...?
Aloha.
--------
We all pay a 10% tax not seen on your receipt...paid by fishing wholesalers pass on to you...Federal tax
This bill was created in 1950..amendment a few times..Funds are dedicated to sport fishing restoration..plus more..
Google :10% Federal fishing tax information sheet...FYI...
Hawaii cannot collect a part of this fund..? Because no fishing licence and other things Hawaii cannot meet certain other requirements...? FYI

My thoughts...If we get a fishing licence...I believe this money will go direct to Dar and other fishing departments..
But expect the general funding to be reduce..? As time goes on...? Because WE...will be funding the difference..? From the fishing licence..money collected..

Has the State ever deliver with more funding..?
What is your thoughts..?

I definitely think that tourist should pay to fish here. Hopefully the revenue from fishing licenses will improve our states ability to protect our fishery.

Sorry guys, just catching up. Here on Oahu, we're so overfished, and we (the local shoreline fisherman, divers and netters) simply haven't made this make this right. We can blame it on others, like development, tourisim, foreigners, business, whatevers... but I feel like fishermen are the primary cause of this depletion If you don't think overfishing causes this depletion, just go to the Waikiki sanctuary and see all the fish in a 1/2 mile no-fishing zone.

The truth is that the mainland and Japanese fishermen-tourists are better conservationists then the we are... They've gotten it.

I absolutely think the state government needs to step in. I don't know if requiring licenses is the best choice, and what would be done with the revenues, but it's a start.

About a year ago, some guy fishing on a SUP posted a video of him ranting against the State's proposal for fishing licenses, saying it was too expensive (nice SUP and truck bro). Then he blamed the spearfishermen for the lack of fish and said they should be required to dive 200 yard offshore (um, how would we enforce that), which was ironic, because he then proceeded to catch a couple of papio, and took them home to eat, didn't release any of them.

I feel like a few bad apples ruin it for everyone, since we can't conserve and care for our resources this ourselves, I'd welcome our State stepping in.

Except the state has proven to do nothing with the money they already have... It will go into bringing in more foreigners with high salaries and displace Hawaiian/locals. They now charge Kyack fees and a million other fees yet cant even keep a single roads around Oahu and every other island in better shape then a dirt road in most US county's back woods... Yet they collect just as much if not more road taxes then states a hundred times bigger..... I can hardly drive around the Island yet they are building on borrowed money 'bike lanes' who in fact pay no zero zippo nada road tax that will be given to driver less car lanes and 'official use' lanes (rich) like the USSR had.

The state is spending money on a global city's initiative sponsored by the central bankers that will turn the Hawaiian Islands into Brazil.... Extreme poverty and a few percent wealth at the top with very little middle class. Imported crime drugs corruption and the like to distract the public.... https://www.brookings.edu/project/global-cities/

I see Chinese and Korean commercial fishing vessels raping the ocean a mile off shore... The guy on the beach has zero ability to destroy like the commercial operations going on..... They get to fish Hawaiian waters in exchange for Hawaiians to fish off of China... LOL what a joke

The Hawaiians had fish ponds to replenish the fisheries yet in this day and age we cant even do what they did hundreds of years ago with zero outside help... How about we make the fish ponds spawn babies again or get this... Replenish what is being destroyed by over fishing and reef rape for Aquarian fish export.

My thoughts here...Fishing licence will happen one day..? Most likey put into a general fund....with the state saying we will give x amount....what was originally given now will be reduce by using the fishing licence funds..? Study this more..?
Has our state really did do things to help the shore line species in the last 50 years..?

Remember today will be the best fishing days f Years from now..10...20..30 plus year from now as you look back one day...2019...fishing was way better then? Smile enjoy the ..now's

I started fishing from the 60's....those days were a struggle too to catch fish sometimes....and the old timers use to talk about the before times....how it was better....enjoy your fishing today.....it will never be like BEFORE...?
