    Maybe they had a person in the boat that has no legal requirement to measure, record or report??? I am looking for some new best buddies.

    That would only be the case if you estimated and it was over than what is allowed if however you were wrong to the under what is allowed no harm no foul.

    This is redonk. Let it go boys. Beauty weather out there. Drop the boat in and open that throttle. Have some fun.

    Getting back to the reports....

    I took the aft off and hit the flats. Ghost town. Very sad. Only 2 other boats. Well, except for the triumphant whale watching boats buzzing by, but I will digress....

    I tried my hand at jigging without success. Saw one other jigger catch and release a smaller one.

    Beautiful day out there! Need more boats out!

    Nice tides for hali yesterday :) so warm and calm I got a nice tan and a massive skate but no hali :( it was a short soak in 265' off albert head (mud hole?) I find it an odd place for hali as I've always been told they like structure??

    I know, i considered keeping the second one on the way up, until its creepy boner tail popped up when it broke the water. 0 for 4 this year

    One skate and a dogfish for me yesterday,the halibut are definitely not as easy to catch as they have been in the past years for me.We used to have day's with multiple fish and now are happy to get one.The (Good Old Day's ) are gone I'm afraid to say.

    Yes,twice in three weeks,next time I'll just show them that I've been checked,all good. Their big inflatable sure can fly,I was doing about 30 mph and they cut me off in no time.

    They hung out after you left and I thought here it comes.....they will be headed our way but then he lit it up and followed the flotilla of whale watchers. I sure hope they keep those guys on their radar and make sure they are enforcing the bubble zone.

    True and yet we are arguing amongst ourselves over the length of a legal Halibut while we are getting destroyed by a bunch of celery chomping hippies

    Nobodys arguing over the length of a legal halibut, I simply asked what he meant when he said he didnt measure it. By law it has to be recorded with a measurement. He said he measured with a marked paddle or something and thats certainly good enough for me.

    Found my measure tape on my lawn, little hands must have relocated it while playing in the boat.

    Tried west Constance for Hali early this morning. Nothing but doggies, fog and 3 other guys anchored rather close together that made me think they probably never saw one another until the fog broke.

    It was a tad to windy / bumpy and I was out of bait so I pulled out just before noon.

    When Trev (NO Banana's ) gets skunked, you know it's slow out there.
