    Nog do you not commercially fish for halibut.

    I have a coworker who grew up working on troller. He told me how they would drag the bottom with a ball on each side and your could tell when you got a massice halibut on the lines how it just pull on the lines.

    Sounds like a good old time

    Be a little more careful in your assumptions.

    I am obviously not versed on why we are demonizing the commercial halibut fishery?

    No one is demonizing the Commercial Halibut Fishery
    What sports fishermen are looking for is a fair piece of the pie.
    15% is not a fair share of the halibut quota!
    If you follow all the posts you should realize that!!

    Perhaps we can give them some of our chinook quota for their halibiut quota.

    As nog has pointed out they have very little chinook quota.

    I think you need to educate yourself a little more before you give us any more ridicules suggestions that are over the moon and will never happen!

    Never enough fish

    This is going to be a perpetual problem. AS long as the TAC is decreasing and the recreational sector is increasing. Their will never be a fair split.

    That’s what we should all take looking back in time. That the only solution is more tac for recs
