Several readers report another insult for Chicago fishermen: a $10 charge to go into the main lot used by fishermen at Belmont harbor.
I'll try to do some followup in the next day or two. Apparently, it went into effect yesterday.
A gate is in place that takes $10 via credit card or cash.
I would almost understand if it was put in place during the crunch of the main boating season. But this the beginning of the off-season.
Used to be this kind of stuff would be handled at Mayor Daley's Fishing Advisory Committee. We are in a time of change.
