This is a really cool short film about the redfish recovery efforts in Texas. Our Dad, Glen Coker, was involved in this fight and I recall him going to Austin to meet with state representatives. My parents owned Portland Marine at the time and the commercial fishermen were not happy about the new regulations. We had a Radio Shack reel-to-reel answering machine and I recall hearing threats left by those unhappy. One in particular talked about “burning your house down.” We love chasing tailing reds so this story is important to share.
