Saturday night we (2 of us) fished an area with 14 other boaters, managed 12 legals and 27 shorts, shut it down at 9PM, sardines for bait, 31 feet deep, you'll have to figure out the rest. Wasn't fooled by Mother Nature or those idiot weather forecasters, Sunday night it was beautiful out there, 1 other boat in the area, sardines again for bait, 14 legals and 51 shorts in 55 minutes of pulling 720-815, 28 feet deep, Dogfish a problem as my partner caught 3 in the nets and 1 on rod'n reel, water both days/nights beautiful color, out of action tonight, go Broncos! Enjoy! John.

    I believe it's true Mike, but there's a line of DFG code somewhere that has to do with spoilage, and I think this could come in to play in a court of law, hypothetical case of course.

    Sardines are gamefish?
    What's a dogfish?

    Hope you and the family are doing well! John.

    Thanks John! Good luck tonight .

    Took 1 hour 25 minutes tonight, 720~845, 14 legals and 37 shorts, lots of clickers, 80% sardines and 20% Mackerel for bait, amazing quality out of the gate, had 10 legals after first 10 nets pulled, 31 feet deep. Handed a guy some bait who was just heading out, karma, pretty good feeling. Have to check the weather, likely we'll be back at it tomorrow, sure is some good shit, 1 other boater in the same area. John.

    I thought you could use gamefish as long as there is not a minimum length required for the take of that particular game fish.?
