Soft Plastics in Maine?

Recommended Posts



"A news release from Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) is asking anglers to stop using soft plastic lures, because trout and salmon are swallowing the lures and failing to regurgitate them, leading to weight loss and other health problems."

I find this interesting. In Slyvania they do not allow the biodegradables (if that means Gulp and similar products) because they are viewed as an unfair advantage and/or more likely to be swallowed resulting in gut hooking. So, for the conservation minded, which way is it?
