Wasn't sure if this had been posted over on this forum, but feel that is important enough to post to make as many aware as possible. Freedom2Fish is an "anglers' advocacy organization designed to disseminate information to Amercian recreational anglers, legislators, as well as the general public about why our recreational fishing seasons are almost nonexistent today, who is responsible for this, and to educate voters who to vote for at election time". Below is a post taken from one of the creators post in a thread on the hulltruth that gives a better understanding:
"Our intention is to somehow create a membership or other mechanism to bring everyone together and generate a sustainable fundability for this organization. We are meeting with other 501 C's who have already formed to gain a better understanding of what models are successful at continuing success. I will tell you this, they are very excited for us and believe we as a group of fishermen on the Gulf Coast have been wronged and have a humongous case to build here that will generate support.
We will have a long-term strategy plan to defend our rights each and every one of us for access to the Gulf of Mexico resources. Our plan is to have an official charter document out within a week or so to share. Beyond that, hopefully within a month or so we will have specific strategies in place with goals and objectives to accomplish towards our overall charter and strategy. We are volunteers and have full-time jobs just like all of you, so any help that you all do especially commenting and keeping this going in the public's eye is of incredible value. We cannot under state that value. We will also need functional support, so any of you who have a technical specialty that might be a benefit to our organization please PM me and let me know what that may be and how you can help. We are not going to advertise for technical specialty roles.
Red snapper are the initial domino in a long chain that will lead to a complete takeover of the Gulf of Mexico Fisheries. Trump wants to build a wall on the Mexican border to keep illegal immigrants an illicit activity out, however; NOAA/NMFS and their Gulf Council want to build a wall at the state and federal waters to keep all fishermen out. As we have said before this is the Sentinel fight of our time and warrants a complete and dedicated focus on ending this madness!
This organization is coming together very fast and is generating power already. We will be dedicated to this fight will use all funds wisely, and we will not give up or give in. "
Links to the gofundme page, hulltruth post lining out what freedom2fish is and their webpage which isn't quite up:
It would be great to see the something the partnership of Scott Deal/Johnny Morris get behind this as well as other manufacturers/businesses. Please take time and do your research and make a contribution.
