Maine To Ban Fishing With Soft-Plastics? - 7
by Gerry Bethge
If state Representative Paul Davis has his way, soft-plastic lures will be banned in the state of Maine. That’s right—you can kiss your creature baits goodbye.
“The legislation seeks to ban “rubber” baits but does not define the terms,” according to KeepAmericaFishing. “Even so, the intent of the legislation is clear—to ban the soft baits that Maine anglers use every day. The bill would even ban biodegradable soft baits currently available.”
