    On Saturday at the horseshoe, I saw a boat drop a buoy with a black flag and then ran about 50-100 feet of netting and ended with another black flag. I was wondering what was he doing? Does anybody know? Also is this legal? Just wondering if some guy out there is catching all my bottomfish at the horseshoe. I saw 4 of these black flags there so he’s got at least 2 of these setups in place.

    As long as he is outside 3 miles nets are still legal for some species.

    Every year just when the local biscuits get going in that sector the nets come in and wipe it out. Bastards set right on the line and kill everything that swims into them.

    CCA California is also pushing for a ban on drift nets.

    Never post locations of WSB catches and always take pics somewhere else like the Harbor. PM friends. Support CCA. Sucks but what else can you do? JMHO

    Are there forum members who understand the bills and the policies being enacted right now who could give us a quick breakdown of whats available for us to vote for or against. I mean if there’s nothing we can do as a recreational fisherman, gotta be something we can do at the ballots. To be honest I had no clue these nets were being used but now that I do, it’s kinda pissing me off.

    Hey man no need to call names. I’m not talking about my bottom fishing. I’m talking about gill nets in general and the bycatch involved.

    Is it just me or are the commercial guys getting more up in our face the last few years? Don’t remember them doing the shoe before, it’s such a common sport area I thought they would avoid it.
