    nice but I was expecting 2 days due to the bad weather on the opener and the tougher than usual fishing on Thursday.

    WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
    Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
    600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091
    http://wdfw.wa.gov


    May 18, 2016

    Halibut fishing re-opens in Marine Areas 3 and 4 on May 28;
    Westport northern nearshore area will close on May 21

    Action: Recreational halibut fishing in Marine Area 3 (La Push) and Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay) will re-open for one additional fishing day. Closes the northern nearshore area in Marine Area 2 (Westport).

    Effective date:

    • Marine areas 3 and 4: Open May 28, 2016.
    • Marine Area 2: Closed effective May 21, 2016.
    Species affected: Pacific halibut

    Location: Marine Areas 2, 3 and 4

    Reason for action: There is sufficient quota remaining in Marine areas 3 and 4 to open the recreational halibut fishery for another day. The recreational halibut quota for the northern nearshore area in Marine Area 2 has reached the Pacific halibut quota reserved for this area; there is not enough quota pounds available to open this area for an additional fishing day. This rule conforms to federal action taken by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC).

    Additional Information: Recreational halibut fishing remains open in other coastal and Puget Sound areas.

    Marine Area 1 (Ilwaco): Open 4 days/week (Thursday-Sunday) in all depth areas, and the Neashore area is open on days when the all depth halibut fishery is closed (Mon-Wed) until the subarea quota is taken.

    Marine areas 5-10 (Puget Sound): Open May 26 through 29, Thursday through Sunday.

    Information contact: Heather Reed, (360) 249-4628, ext. 202.

    Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphletfor details on fishing seasons and regulations. Fishing rules are subject to change. Check the WDFW Fishing hotline for the latest rule information at (360) 902-2500, press 2 for recreational rules. For the Shellfish Rule Change hotline call (360)796-3215 or toll free 1-866-880-5431.

    Maybe Cwillis will invite me... ;) Seriously I'm glad they're giving folks another shot. Considering that other species issue.

    Dude, I would totally but I am probably going to be in your neck of the woods. I was told by my wife I need to take my 3.5 year old out of the house for the weekend so she can start potty training w/ the 2 year old. He isn't quite ready for Neah Bay but we may go throw some prawn traps in the drink.

    Take the 3.5 yr old to Neah... just stay inside of Tattosh and Waddah... easy rock fish / seabass action.

    My daughter started fishing in the Straight just after 2 yrs old.

    I love it. If I had a slip, room, etc I would consider it. The rat race I envision Saturday to be after witnessing last weekend is gonna have me stay on the sideline this time. Best of luck to all!

    Awesome, were jizzing all over ourselves about this "bonus" day that used to be standard.

    All these 1 day turn and burn halibut trips to the coast are brutal.
