As we go through this difficult time around the world, families that are quarantined together need opportunities to recreate in a safe manner.   Fishing on our private boats provides distraction and allows us to provide food to feed our families.   While we understand the reason that ramps and marinas were closed, people abusing boating as a means of congregating to party can be easily curtailed.  Enforcement at the key sites like Nixon Beach and Sands Cut sand bars would dissuade those that want to be irresponsible.  This will be especially effective if there is the threat of heavy fines.  This enforcement would require minimal effort since people would gather in well known areas that can be easily targeted for enforcement.  Please do not penalize families in need of fresh air and food due to the actions of the irresponsible few.
