Re: California Sea Cucumber dive permit

Good Luck with the sale, wish I had the cash.

Re: Advice on gear for Cortes Bank trip

Kind of interesting that you can harpoon a sword but can't spear it.

Thanks for the report, sounds like an amazing trip.

Re: California Multi-Day Fishing Trip Permit Questions

In Norcal, there are several boaters that will stay out and drift as someone already mentioned (as some do for albacore overnight trips) or you can try and tuck in somewhere behind the farrallon...

Re: Mendocino 4/1

Great report and having your kids with you sounds awesome.

Heard most places weren't worth diving due to the ground swell you mentioned.

There's suppose to be a south swell to complicate things.

Re: Sources for Finding Good Boat Deals..

I like parkers but didn't like the bare bones cabin and lack of storage on the deck. No standard fish lockers or bait tank. On a 21 foot parker, I had a 175 hp 2 stroke but it always felt...

Re: 2 DFW Officers, Dishonest or Incompetent?

Well, at least for him he still hasn't been hired as a warden. But I think he was more upset at the union then citizens.

Regardless, it sucks to hear of your situation. Sounds like you have a...

Re: 2 DFW Officers, Dishonest or Incompetent?

Re: Add your Input to new 2017 Lobster Regs..

There has been past research on lobster and shrimp, and for lobsters one of the difficulty was getting them to molt faster and cannibalism. Thus lobster aquaculture is not cost effective.

Re: SCUBA cert question

Re: DFG data collection at launch ramp

To each their own. But I do believe the surveys helped increase the lingcod limit to 3 and decrease the size back down to 22 when it was raised to 24 inches. Maybe the only positive example. Then...

Re: Should we leave the "Trophies" alone?

I do agree that larger individuals can provide more fecundity but there is also a point where they start to produce less gametes regardless of their size. The curve isn't just exponential.

Re: PB lobster

Congrats on PB. For anywhere that is a monster, but especially for anacapa. Never have seen one over ten lbs at anacapa.

Re: DFW workers

I have seen classes for volunteers. They take courses and then are let loose to try and enforce "softly", meaning they can't write citations. I guess a way to save money and to show their presence.
