This is entirely the fault of the three states who have rapped our waters for commercial gains, while failing to manage the resources properly.
The States always go after the sportsmen first, imposing extra fees, taxes, increased licensing, and extra permits, while restricting access and seasons as well as equipment to such levels that it's not worth the time and expense to fish any more!! I saw the writing on the wall when they demanded the switch to barbless hooks, and imposes additional fees while raising the license and tag fees, and then restricted you to two or three days a week, which just so happened to be the days the dams were let out! PHUCKERS!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

Yep. Nailed it.

Gotta keep the whale-watchers happy. And doesn't impact tribal over-harvesting at all.

Will be moving down south after retirement and going back to bass fishing.

If the returns projected are less than 966k, which hasn't happened since 2007...

If the projected returns dip to that kind of level, there wouldn't be any fishing in the ocean anyways. This is a feel good floor that if it gets hit without the west coast state managers freaking out, they will have failed as fishery managers. Just a bill for the feds to say they did something to protect orcas.

Don’t forget the gigantic Chinese and Japanese “fishing factory ships” out there scooping up all the fish by insane numbers….
Yep. If the Chinese can occuply their man made island and say they have rights to the whole ocean between them and the Phillipines...maybe we can say anything between the US and Hawaii is ours, only we can fish it.

These guys show up in the hundreds and fish an area dry! They fish in other country's waters with zero regards for others territory, and they have no regulation governing the catching and sales of illegal or endangered, protected species!

You're a pretty diversified individual with plenty of cool toys - did you happen to snatch up one of the surplus Russian subs when they trimmed their fleet in the 90's ?
