Trolling 2015 ?
Thanks for the question. At this point, it is my belief that, even if approved by the Governor this winter (i.e., tomorrow), the proposed changes to the trolling rules would not be in effect in 2015. If approved (which seems unlikely at this time because we are 6-7 months beyond the normal process), the proposal would still require Legislative review, which would put the effective date into December 2015 or January 2016. So, even if approved, it would more than likely not be in effect in time for any of the 2015 season.
