Typical well meaning but misdirected decision.  While undoubtedly some of those stunned trout may survive, many thousands more will die and go to waste to satisfy public perception (mostly due to pressure from CCA).   It is madness to manage speckled trout in NC to survive more than 3 years.  Historically NC is on the northern fringe of speckled trout habitat for winter survival, and averages a killing freeze every 3 years.  Sad that for all of our history these stun and KILL events have occurred on speckled trout and citizens picked them up and utilized them, but today's management practices would rather see the sea gulls, otters, and raccoons eat them than for people to do so.

Congratulations to Stephen Murphey - Director of North Carolina Marine Fisheries.

Director Murphey waste no time in taking action, to preserve the spotted sea trout fishery given cold stun weather event.
