There will be free beer food, and music,, and we’ll do a panel with a few commercial and recreational anglers (including yours truly and Louisiana redfish guide Lucas Bissett).
Reel Talk: Panel on Fisheries & the Magnuson-Stevens Act

The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act is a landmark law that guides the long-term sustainable use of our marine fisheries. Over the last 40-plus years, it has dramatically reduced overfishing and helped to rebuild fish stocks. Despite its long history of success, anglers across the nation are having to unite to fend off an array of attacks on the law and update it to better address issues like climate change and ecosystem degradation. Join experts from the world of fishing and conservation for a panel discussion about both threats and opportunities. We’ll also have beer, live music and snacks at this free event.
Hope to see you guys there!!!”
