These areas are vital for the rearing of juvinal redfish, snook, tarpon and trout. Before the plugs blew out biologists were netting loads of young gamefish in every cast not throw. In the last 3 years they have not caught one single fish
Just a question, "canals", "ditches", and "plugs" sound manmade, wouldn't the removal/restoration back to a natural state be better for the glades longterm?
