LEE: Congrats on a great weekly. Your magazine is as fair and balanced as any media I know, possibly to a fault. Issues like slow motoring to protect seagrass need your leadership and an aggressive stance. Our seagrass is precious. Is your mission informing or leading to a solution, one key area at a time? Next, I wish the map on page 5 was an index to spots from page 6. I was a competitive tournament fisherman and readily shared my hot spots. Knowing spots and catching fish are two different things. I now hold a negative view of payout competitive tournaments. Next, I urge beginning anglers to take trips with a guide that matches your personality. When you add up the money, it’s cheaper to hire a guide than to maintain a boat. One final point: I redesigned my pontoon for senior citizens. In my view, the boating industry has committed a travesty with little consideration of accessibility for seniors. In contrast, the pedal biking industry redesigned product lines for seniors. I find a lot of seniors have “dock ornaments” because they can no longer comfortably access their boat.
