I subscribe to the F&G's Q&A newsletter and receive emails sometimes several times a month. I keep the emails for quick references. Will start sharing them. Regulations (sturgeon rules, for instance) change occasionally. Will be careful to post pertinent info.

Question: Is it legal to use a rod and reel as a retrieval device for a hoop net? For instance, I would connect an 18-inch hoop net to the line of my rod and reel (without hooks) and this would allow me to cast the net in order to better fish for lobsters from a jetty. Is this OK? (Jeff C.)

Answer: Yes, you may use a rod and reel as a retrieval device for your hoop net. You are not required to pull your net by hand, nor are you prohibited from pulling it using a rod and reel.

Question: If I catch legal-sized sturgeons with eggs, can I sell the eggs because I don't eat them? (Byron M.)

Answer: No. It is illegal to sell any portion of a sturgeon or any fish taken under the authority of a sport fishing license (Fish and Game Code, Section 7121).
