Curious if anyone knows when the picture of the week on the front page of the national fisherman's website was taken? Time to put the rig back in?

Said it was a 75 incher, I don't know about you but I'll sell that any day. Believe me I leave these months to the groundfishermen.

So would I, but it is still a realitivily small fish. Let me re-word, A barely legal tuna. I dont think the picture is very recent though, just being a wiseguy.

YEah, kinda lays waste to the whole baby killing argument. If the comm limit were 40", how many fish above 41" do you think would be released to breed?

;)

Just askin.

Good question, I have often thought myself. If I caught a 41" fish and the limit was 40" would I sell it? probably not, unless it was not gonna make it, or the price was through the roof. I would not say it puts the whole baby killing argument to waste though, just like the bass fishery rec guys kill alot more fish than hook n line comm guys all day long.

I read that the bass limits were going to change this season to a slot and one fish per person. Is that set in stone or is it just a thought? Will the commercial limit stay the same, is there even going to be a commercial season?

I have heard but not confirmed the commercial season will be shortened but the catch limit will be the same, is a an effin joke anyway 5 fish on sun. sat closed.....good thing I have a full time job.
Not sure about the rec. limits but have heard the same.
Loligo can probably straighten us out.

Couple things before everyone gets their bright idea. First off you need a bait dealers permit to sell bait, not just the endorsement.

Secondly the commercial season is scheduled to have the same regs as last year, just not sure on the overal quota yet. There was a bill put forward that has not been voted on yet, but the guy who put it forward has admitted it will be shot down.

Lastly, you just helped make one of the arguments against us as commercial fisherman in one half of a sentence in one post.

"anyway 5 fish on sun. sat closed.....good thing I have a full time job."

One of their strongest arguments is that people get the commercial permit for tax write offs and to supplement their expenses for the year. To my understanding I think one of the main reasons that they allow even 5 fish on Sunday is to keep people content. I don't even fish on Sundays anymore, its a zoo of people that have full time jobs. I have nothing wrong with people supplementing things on weekends and its a nice bonus of a few hundred bucks but be careful what you say.

I understand you completley, having been a commercial fisherman and my father being a commercial fisherman I was smart enough to walk away. if you can make a living hook n line all the power to ya. unfortunatley you cannot ask the weather to cooperate with the fishing regulations schedule, further effing everything up for the commercial guys anyway.
