I haven't posted any lobster porn this season.... So tonight I took my new boxer puppy Bailey fishing for the first time. Turns out she is good luck. Nice night on the water, not too cold, was loading the boat on the ramp at 8:30. Big bay 35-52 foot of water,,,, Heck the big boats are even getting lobster lately.

The last picture of the navy's boat was from a month ago.

I wish my dog was calm enough to keep me company on the boat, she gets nervous. Congrats on the catch.

I thought that I was a good swimmer but these guys are fast. Do I need to get a dolphin report card and if so, what's the limit?

Hey thanks everyone for the compliments on Bailey.

Decided to go fish again tonight. Found this boat half submerged with two guys standing on the jetty. It was pretty windy to start the night around 5. Water came over their boats transom and it was over in an instant. Lucky for them they were up against the jetty and able to climb to safety. They were barely even wet.

Called coast guard for assistance. Three harbor patrol boats showed up and wouldn't help to raise the boat. The two had salvaged some gear that they threw onto my boat......Unfortunately they had already set their ten hoops along the jetty. We went and pulled their nets and I took them back to the ramp. Night was cut short. Oh well. Tmrw. morning I'm gonna go and help them raise the boat if possible. 14' aluminum skiff. Should be fun. We will have a couple divers with us to try to remove the motor and lighten it up.... Any ideas on how to raise it?

Did you have their hoops & your hoops on your boat ? Just wondering if the DFG would still give you a ticket for to many hoops on the boat under the circumstances. Pretty cool of you to help those guys.

As long as you are not fishing and have not been fishing on that trip, then DFG has no jurisdiction. you can transport as many nets as you want. Otherwise DFG could stop one of those big containerships bringing fishing gear from China, and bust them for 100 hoopnets in a container. The rules for gear only apply if the vessel is, or has been fishing. If you caught some bugs, and on your way back in picked up extra hoop nets, and then DFG catches you with bugs and over 10 nets, then you are in violation. Bringing 20 nets to catalina, and then offloading 10 to a buddies boat, and then starting your fishing would be OK.

Turn it upside down and have the divers open an air bottle underneath it?
Get on the opposite side of the jetty and pull it up on the rocks and bail it??? I'd like to hear how this works out, you're a hero... :D

You are indeed the definition of a good samaritan. May the fishing gods forever bless you with bountiful catches.

    By the letter of the law, we were in violation of Dfg regs. I had nets in the water and they had their nets. All were pulled and once loaded onto my boat we had twenty nets total and all had been fished from my boat. What were we gonna do, leave their gear behind? I don't think so. Fortunately no DFG at the ramp on our return. I personally don't have a lot of faith with DFG these days to be reasonable in such situations. Damn shame imho

    I agree, you did the right thing. Hopefully a DFG officer would have been reasonable, otherwise, it is supposed to be the judges job to bring common sense back to the law.
