On Saturday March 2nd the GLSI held an open meeting at Jays Sporting Goods in Clare.
We would like to thank Jays for their use of their meeting room, Sponsors #Moonshinelures and #BloodrunTackle for their support at this meeting. As anglers please show your support for companies and businesses that work to insure the future of our fisheries.
A special thanks needs to go out to MDNR employees Randy Claramunt the L. Huron Basin Coordinator and Dave Caraffino of the Tribal Coordination Unit for attending and answering questions.
Most importantly the public that attended. To learn what the GLSI is about, how we are working to represent your interests and the questions asked about our fisheries in Lakes Michigan and Huron. Many topics for discussion were on the agenda but the content of questions and comments were directed towards the overall interest in maintaining a sustainable Silver Fish fishery, not mainly a Lake Trout factory. The GLSI expressed that we need a balanced fishery which includes Lake Trout but not focused on trout. The opinions expressed after the meeting were that people felt that they were heard and learned a lot about the issues with managing our resources.
To the non members that attended and joined the GLSI at the meeting Congratulations you joined a group representing your interests—economically, scientifically and questions management perspectives and holds our managers accountable to their actions. Thank you for attending and joining the movement!!
