Probably too late now.....
« on: Apr 11, 2019, 08:47 AM »
I know this isn't ice fishing but it is related to fishing.  Anyone else own a boat and been following this years legislative session?  I  have a couple boats and have been following the AIS overreaction.  Check out HB 411 which has passed the house and has been transmitted to the senate.  http://laws.leg.mt.gov/legprd/LAW0203W$BSRV.ActionQuery?P_SESS=20191&P_BLTP_BILL_TYP_CD=HB&P_BILL_NO=411&P_BILL_DFT_NO=&P_CHPT_NO=&Z_ACTION=Find&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ2=&P_SBJT_SBJ_CD=&P_ENTY_ID_SEQ=

I cry BS, **censored** and lots of other things.  You only have to read the first couple of sentences, decreasing fees for non residents and increasing fees for residents.  >:(

Where do they think AIS comes from, my back yard??  Way to go Curdy!!

Maybe it has been changed but what I'm reading show that non-motorized vessels will also need an AIS pass. I don't see anything wrong with lowering non-resident prices either. Non-residents already get screwed when it comes to hunting and fishing in our state as it is. I couldn't believe how much it cost my friend to come and paddlefish last year.

Yea, seems like they're higher non resident prices than some other states. I was shocked at what it would cost to come up for a weekend of fishing there.

Yaho.
Your correct looks like the "current" bill removed "motorized" so is all vessels......
For some reason only the first bill showed up when I first looked at it.

Well, at least Bill 411 is confusing to understand.  Weird how they charge Hydroelectric plants a invasive species fee by the kilowatt.  How does the Hydro plant induce or introduce invasive species?  Why do they have to pay?  That is ridiculous.  I hope the Hydros protest that part of the bill. 
wish you many hook-ups
