I wonder how many times this guy's been cited by the DFW for breaking the law ?
Probably a'lot !! They know the law and he doesn't. That's why he's got a hard on for them !!!!!
What would he say????
One post about breaking the rules and next thing you know every Bloodydecks user is an expert in law
Sorry bud your wrong.. I work on a full day/ overnight boat out of long beach and we are responsible too for checking bag and species limits. We get the ticket also with angler (misdemeanor but still on record btw).
So wherever your getting your information , I suggest you tell them to check their sources. It could get you in some trouble and $$ in fines.
Not loose lose crew bags every fish marks on slate when boat limits complete fishing is done. Crew knows what species and makes it their business to comply with the regs. You are either a scoff law or not.
There was a good writeup on this in WON this week.
When you have dumbshits posting in defense of this, it’s not too hard to expose.
WON still exists?

Talking with game warden today about that, he says that all west coast states have a reciprocal agreement when it comes to violators, whether sportfishermen or commercials. He said that if you're suspended in one state, you're suspended in all of em
not clueless, but not a dfg drone. These people want to be cops and want you to make a mistake. Ive dealt with them many times, and they were always looking for something negative. Not clueless, but not dumb enough to believe a cop (which a warden is) is on my side.
NWA has a great song about the police.
So does inner circle
Yes clueless.Sounds like you just have issues with law enforcement.How many times have you been busted ?
Touche, well played sir.
I have no doubt that cops and wardens jobs don't include being on "your side".
I've got no valuable comment for the PS, but I hope that the twilight sporties targeting Sculpin take note. I went out 2 times this past month or so (same boat) and it appeared that very few shorties were tossed back. I saw some filets that looked like a McDonald's chicken nugget (ok, maybe the size of two-three nuggets if I'm being generous) going into produce bags at the end of the night. I was disappointed and saddened to see that even if it was Sculpin. Many, many of those fish were not 10" in my opinion.
To be fair, I did not put a measuring tape on any of the "short" fish, but I know they would have never made it on any of the private boats I go out on.
Let's just say you were on a sport boat out of SD. Kind of a well known boat, where the crew looked the other way as two of the guys fishing that day caught at least 30 (many more I think) mini yellowtail in the 5-8 lb range. Those guys filled the largest cooler I have seen packed full of those babies. The crew was laughing the whole time and high five'ing those guys on the off load.
That made me sick. Not because those guys caught and kept those fish, that was not the issue. The problem I had was with myself. I did not call Cal Tips to report the way over harvest.
I fish boats where limits are kept, bags are counted and if someone is not lucky enough to get their limit fish are shared to those people if wanted.
I know my story is somewhat vague and a bit speculative but that's by design because I won't hammer the whole for the actions of a few. But, if your the owner of a sport fishing vessel and either you can't figure out what's going on on your boat or you just don't care, well that's up to you.
