Stealing from Peter to pay Paul.

You can smash as many as you want in Caspar Cove per Title 14 § 29.06 (d)(1). And no one really cares if you smash your 35 else where. Call it chumming/baiting for greenlings or something. No warden is gonna cite you for that. They've got more important stuff to do.

Only caught some of the general comment before work. Mark L did a great job speaking and made a compelling comment. The Fresh and Salty folks just kind of bumbled around for two minutes and didn’t really get their points across clearly.

Do you fish for them during day time?
I have done frog gigging during night time.

You can catch them H&L during daylight hours for sure. They are more active at night though.

The petition will be received under agenda item 25A "REGULATION CHANGE PETITIONS (MARINE)" which will probably be on day two, October 12. You can still comment during agenda item 2 "General public comment for items not on the agenda" on day one but they will probably get pissed off and tell speakers to simply +1 what a prior speaker said instead of soap boxing for the full minute since it will add two hours to the meeting otherwise.

You will not be commenting on the petition October 11-12, at least for action to be taken. The Commission will merely receive the petition and punt it for action/consideration in December in San Diego (or later), if it is received by staff September 27, 5:00 PM or earlier.

You had better submit the petition ASAP before people jump the the gun and start sending emails that don't map to a submitted petition.

Size up and wear a rash guard underneath. Or switch to a dry suit.

Scupper plug your tankwell and flood it with saltwater and cover it with burlap. Then keep ice in a separate soft cooler and replenish the slurry as needed.

Hopefully he was just sticking carp and didn't know any better.


Get a full size spare that you include in your tire rotation. Subarus have a very tight tread difference tolerance across tires (1/4 circumference across the tires) so an unrepairable flat on one generally means you need to replace all four. If you have a five tire rotation, then you can just retire the damaged one and go back to a donut + four tire rotation until you get new tires. Also, you'd be hosed if you got a flat in LA or SD and had to limp back on the donut. Not the case with a full size spare.

Fish Talk / Re: Rockfish Reg. Petition Workgroup - Need your help

Submitting a petition to the commission is a pretty easy/lightweight process. People submit petitions for all kinds of dumb stuff all the time (not saying your petition is dumb, just that any yahoo can and does submit all kinds of far-fetched shit practically monthly). You don't need any signatures. Just be succinct and point to a specific existing regulation with the change you want verbatim. Maybe you could get them to expand the shore/diver exemption to non-motorized craft or something like that. Surely divers kill more preggo lingcod and ancient rockfish than anyone.

Essentially what will happen is the commission will refer the proposal to the Department of Fish and Wildlife staff, and some biologist/law enforcement/other staff will look into how feasible the change is and recommend that the commission either grant or deny the petition. There is opportunity for public comment (e.g. everyone comes on and says it's a DEI issue since current regs shut out a lot of non-boat owners for much of the state for much of the year) but I don't think that carries much weight in reality--the commission will go with the department staff recommendation.

You should have no problems getting up on top of Hull Mountain. The backside has a little snow still, front side is clear.

I wished I have an off road tires on my Outback Subaru, Otherwise, I will join yah!!
That should be fine. Just air down to ~20 psi if you're nervous. Better grip and puncture resistance.
