    Well,as stocks continue to decline...the finger can’t possibly be pointed at sport fisherman. Who is responsible for habitat restoration....and who will be continuing to overfish the stocks.....

    Anyone else notice that they say "no fishing for chinook" but everywhere else is says no retention? Does this mean total closure? Or even more stupidity on their part?

    That could be interpreted that there’s no CR for Chinook as well. I think further clarification is needed. Good catch

    I’ll be going to court after keeping hatchery chinooks

    This isn't a bad idea. Just keep fishing and file a class action once we have a bunch of fines piled up. Kidding... but not.

    I think we need an actual protest. One that they cant argue with. First nations doesnt get to decide.

    reading through the fine print, I’m quite sure they’re just referring to the banana here. Looks like outside the banana is open for retention of 1 Chinook under 80 cm in August. I’m gonna need a longer bonker.

    Did you look at the map? Or are saying the map is way off? The banana doesn't extend into harbor like the hatched area on the map shows.

    Already trying to come up with a chant and jingle that sounds good for our blockade of highway 1. I am serious. Enough is enough. Fuming right now.

    Nope. It extends all the way across the straight. From Gibsons right across to the South tip of Valdes.

    Going off this page http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/...EUASB_PqXt81_wnSSfQ8_c4yRb93pfxYyEa7AGcFltpc4

    says areas 29-3 to 29-5 are open Aug 1 for 1 per day under 80 cm. I didn’t check to see if they changed the boundaries, but this was always the area outside the banana. Didn’t see anywhere that they changed the boundaries so hopefully I’m not wrong.

    Protest will go no where. They will play the race card and low Fraser stock card. We need drone footage of the net massacre on the Fraser.

    Nope. You are only reading part of the notice. Read the part in brackets. It reads: "(with the exception of those portions of Areas 28 and 29 listed below), and Subarea 29-8:"
    And those exceptions are: "
    • April 1 to Aug 31: No fishing for chinook
    • Sept 1 to Dec 31: 2 chinook per day
    As shown by the hatched marked areas very clearly.

    Ya, I saw that but scroll down further to where it talks about the southern straight. I think that map you posted refers to now through the end of July.


    Strait of Georgia – South and Juan de Fuca
    Areas 18, Subareas 19-3 to 19-12, Subareas 20-3 to 20-7, Area 28 and Subareas 29-3 to 29-5 (with the exception of those portions of Areas 28 and 29 listed below), and Subarea 29-8:

    • April 1 to July 31: No retention of chinook
    • Aug 1 to Aug 31: 1 chinook per day, max 80 cm
    • Sept 1 to Dec 31: 2 chinook per day

    Nope. Look at the map key legend. It is very clear. If you are still in doubt call DFO directly.

    And if you read the actual full bulletin with the coordinates here's where it gives the gps.... as I mentioned above ie Gibsons (Gower Pt) to bottom of Valdes..

    Cut and paste from the official Fisheries bulletin #FN0565

    "Portions of Southern Strait of Georgia, Howe Sound and Burrard Inlet – Subareas 28-7 to 28-9; that portion of Subarea 28-2 that lies southerly of a line drawn due east
    from Halkett Point on Gambier Island (49 26.735’N, 123 19.302’W) to a point (49 26.550’N, 123 14.317’W) on the mainland corresponding with the southeast point of the
    Lions Bay RCA; and those portions of 29-3 to 29-5 that lie east of a line from Gower Point (49 23.021’N, 123 32.166’ W) near Gibsons to Shah Point on the southern tip
    of Valdes Island (49 01.695’N, 123 35.721’W)"

    Seriously. Block something. Make a stand. This is crap. First nations already said theyd ont want a sport fishery and that it's taking away from their aboriginal food. I call bull shit. I call bull shit everytime I have my jet boat up the harrison in the fall. Watching them load 50ft trucks with totes. Even on sockeye low fish count years. Year after year. Watching them Seine in oysoyoos lake when those fish are in their spawning beds. Watching them bonk sturgeon. Watching them bonk anything that touches their net. I gillnetted for a while. I've seen that shit even then. Rant not over.
