You don't need a license to fish from the pier. He may not have one, and pulling it won't stopRead Moreanyon e from fishing from a fishing pier. See: http://www.dfg.ca.gov/licensing/fishing/sportfishingfaqs.html

What don't they allow in Chicago, fishing near swimmers or swimmers near fisherman? Fishing offRead Morepi ers has been going on for decades off California piers without to many problems. This claim by PETA that the fisherman provoked the shark attack is not backed by any scientific evidence whatsoever, PETA just pulled this claim out of thin air, its a lie. PETA is one of the liberal cults trying to ban ALL FISHING AND HUNTING here.

I could go on and on as I have pages of data and facts, but that would be redundant so I won't goRead Moreth ere. I was at the Council Meeting last night, and I had the privilege of speaking for one minute! Two points I challenge the Fishing "Banners" with: What happens when schools of anchovies arrive near the Pier to attract sharks? Or seals for that matter? No ban will ever change nature, and you can't legislate stupidity of swimmers or fishermen. Second point: What about surf fishing? Will that be banned too? I saw a fisherman under the Pier fishing the day after the "so called" ban was put into effect! So, fishing 30 feet under the pier is ok? So hypocritical. BTW, the reason I said "so called" ban is because as of yesterday, the ban was/is illegal. The City failed to get the mandatory waiver from the California Coastal Committee to temporarily amend the Local Coastal Plan. Guess none of the media stayed long enough at the meeting or did not hear the MB City Attorney explain that. The Attorney also said, if approved, the ban most likely will be for the next 30 days, with a slight possibility of 60 days.
please keep it civil July 17, 2014 at 12:47 AM
Thank you Duke Noor for keeping your recent post civil. It's nice to see constructive conversation Read Morewithout name calling and insults. It's so much more effective when people make an argument with facts, deal points, and/or thought provoking ideas.

I'd personally like to keep the 50 stars and stripes. So here's a solution. Get rid of a coupleRead Moreof southern states to make room for the Californias and maybe Puerto Rico and Guam. Texas goes first. :-) Oh well, if there's a Civil War... This time we'll just build a wall with an educational test to be allowed to cross it.

what language would you choose for the test?

Good advice. :-)
