Ok Ladies and Gentleman here are the proposed Halibut dates for 2020. They are not final until PFMC approves them at the Nov mtg, I will be in Cali for the meeting and will post it up when it is final. Also if you would like to help me in getting the annual limit raised or deleted to no annual limit please let WDFW know how you feel. I have been trying to get it raised to a 6 fish annual limit. Please email Heather Hall at, [email protected].
Thank You HD

Vance we get an increase every year for salmon in area 2. Thanks for the confidence and support I have to try, it wont happen in 2020 but with enough support we can get it in 2021. It took us 4 years to get April back in area 6. Cheers HD

An increase to 6 would mean a shorter season, which is less beneficial to those of us that can't just drop everything to fish whenever we want.

A big thanks to Dave and Co. for all the hard things you do working your tails off to get us a better share because all of this starts at the Federal level and as anyone that has ever had to deal with governmental BS knows, it's like banging your head into a wall a lot of the time.
