So, I was looking through the regs to see specifically what is written for searun cutts in the sound. I see them listed as C&R only in all marine areas, and I see that for all species in MA 5-13, barbless hooks are required. What I don't see is a reg for single hooks only (expect for when fishing salmon in MA 1-13), and I don't see a reg for artificial lures only. I've heard people say that beach fishing for cutts is artificial, single hooks, barbless only, but don't see this in the regs. Since I haven't had a chance to meet with my attorney, financial planner, psychiatrist, and priest yet to help me understand the regs, I'm wondering if I'm just missing something? Not that it matters to me, cause this is how I will fish them anyway, but I have seen a few people out on beaches fishing bait, and I want to have my facts straight so I can educate them or call the hotline if that fails.
