This is just the beginnig guys bet you wont see a season maybe if we are lucky april 1 but lets wait and see and be optimistic its not that bad!!!!!!!!!!!
But ill warn you all now this is halibut. and take notice THIS WIL NOT be the end of it there will be more to come summer springs will be next.
if your thinking of buying a boat and becoming a guide stick to what you got as its going to a very very rough road.
thats why i got back into being a chef

Sure hope it opens before that, Im almost out of stock! We'll still get a season, just a short one?
Guess what ?, DFO hope to have an answer on the rec. Halibut opening
today before 4:30.... but they weren't positive [:0]
nothing on Chinook yet.
Interesting that the SFAB did not support a 1 and 2, daily and possession limit that would have extended the season. Is this because they prefer to see a shorter season that facilitates the big lodge operations that rely on liberal quotas to bring in customers? As for the local angler who fishes out of Victoria, how many halibut a day do you need? If you have three people in the boat, you can keep three halibut – isn’t that enough? It may be that DFO will open the season early this year, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it closes soon after the end of August. Unfortunately, I fear what we will see eventually is a truncated summer-only opening that favours the commercial recreation sector.
If the announcement that we are waiting for today is generated back east where it is 5:45 pm right now, why don't we have an answer??
