I talked to Doug at Fred Hall show and he confirmed the story and that he charged rent for the gaff to bring in the Opah. Tastes like chicken...Opah commits suicide, San Diego, Fisherman's Landing, story posted 3/26/2014.
I didn't make this up
Opah! Couldnt resist helping to resurrect the most awsome thread of all time. Lets talk about opah And divers jumping in to kill a bite. Ready Go
Heres my take on the rules when you go fishing,know the regulations or stay out of the water.Ignorance is no excuse.If your not sure whats legal or what your trying to catch,kill or spear then dont do it ! What kind of help or advice could be given to this guy ? i honestly thought it was a joke at first and cant remember commenting on this post until today.If you find the DFW regulations that difficult to comprehend try a different set of colored glasses.plj46,
One of the purposes of this great forum is to help others from getting into trouble due to not knowing or misinterpreting the CAF&G regulations. As you know they are quite complicated, cumbersome to read and sometimes not easy to understand especially for a novice. I do not know SeanG but obviously he did not knowing break the law or he would not have posted his thread. When I first read his thread I immediately knew he was mistaken because an opah fin looks nothing like a shark's fin. He only posted twice before in the same month before you guys took great pride in flaming him. He is obviously a rookie and needed our help being a better steward of ocean fishing before he gets himself into trouble with the F&G or takes fish unnecessarily. Some offered help but most did not.
I look at the world through a pair of different colored glasses than you do. I see the good in people and not look for something bad in them so I can tear them down to inflate my ego at their expense. So I guess if an old women tripped and fell down you would call her stupid for falling and not help her up. Some of us would take pity on her unfortunate circumstance and gladly help her up and help her so that it does not happen again. So enjoy your world through your pair of colored glasses and I'll enjoy mine.
