Nowadays we've got a whole network of closed-off areas, the limit's been cut in half and the fish have an extra 2+ reproductive years before they reach the new legal size.

Taking calicos used to bug me. Now I'm OK with it

Diving around and seeing all the millions of juvies makes me think the population is in pretty good shape. I'm very optimistic about the future.
Agreed I see tons of 3-4 inch fish all over.
