Don't know if any one has heard yet but the dgif is making the use of gillnets above the salt fresh line illegal after october 17th for catching gizzard shad. I heard this from a pretty reliable source who is close with some folks at the vmrc. Check the vmrc meeting minuets for july 18th. I don't know if the minuets are posted to their site yet but I know the topic was discussed. Some of the local fellows are trying organize for the meeting with some ideas to present to the dgif.
