Shelter in place order until 4/19. Does that mean no more fishing?

Was going to get the boat out and take my boys out to Anacapa this weekend. Will the police give me a ticket if they spot me because of this shelter in place thing? This wuhan virus thing is making me sick(not literally).

Seems highly unlikely they'll be stopping people for being on the road. But if they do just tell them you're going out for mental exercise and collection of food.

Found the answer. "For now, the orders won't be enforced by police. "

Think I'm good to go. Can't imagine fishing on my own boat being any danger of getting the virus.

Was thinking of going to Catalina for a couple days next week, question now is, will the harbor patrol be working, can we get food service on the Island?.

I doubt any law enforcement will be around to bother you. If they do, tell them you are living on your boat. BoatUS is still available as needed per their website.

You guys missed the part where they said that fishing was a vital nation interest. They did not specify it it was commercial or sport, so we will take the push. It any one asked, it vital nation interest, but we may have to make our own bait! Tight lines, but no more than two people per each 6ft of boat!
See ya on the water.

I have a lot of friends in law enforcement. What they tell me is that they are not writing tickets, they only make arrests when absolutely necessary and they are avoiding contact with people as much as possible. The last thing they want to do is come in contact with someone who has the corona virus or worse yet arrest someone who is infected and bring them back to the station causing everyone working in the station to be placed in quarantine. I don't think anyone is going to bother you for going fishing.

Commercials are all out of business and trying to dump inventory off the boats right now. They would fish if they had a market.
not true for all!

Sorry in SD and I heard a boat trying to offload up north had no market.

I talked to a few boats on the dock today at G street that didn't have a market and said our Dockside market is closed tomorrow.
Roger that I heard the same, I guess I should have spelled out what I was implying better, there are fish being caught and sold still here and the Bay Area, mostly smaller skiff guys and some crab guys for the local markets and CSFs. Bigger boats that ship out and bigger markets are on the decline cause of this crazy stuff.

Great deals on bigeye, opah, wahoo, etc right now if you know who to call.

I was mainly trying to say. They would be fishing if they had a market so why can't we?....
lots of people fishing today here, sport and commercial. So far salmon is a go for the sport opener, unless something changes......

Now that is a civil exchange, explaining to one another their posts.

Every closet, the garage and drawer has been reorganized at home. Wife keeping the kids going like rented mules.

[/QUOTE]

I believe the real "danger" is not getting the virus, but spreading it. Since our f-ing government can't get their shit together and supply test kits we really don't know who does or doesn't have it. The virus is spreading by people that are symptom free. We are making the same mistakes that Italy and Spain made. We all need to heed the warnings they are speaking.
Be safe, healthy, and smart.

I am thinking that solo surf fishing sounds like exercise and food gathering.....although I am almost alway catch and release from the surf.....but might someday get a legal Halibut.....

Was thinking the same thing except probably at least few hundred thousand others thinking the same. Might be worth it to bring a mask just in case. There was a picture of Santa Monica Beach over the past weekend...hundreds...maybe thousands were on the beach...looked like summer. Fuck that...if its like that just find a more secluded spot or go home. I wouldnt trust that 6 ft guideline being given especially where theres a breeze of any kind. I think a lot of beaches will close public parking in response. State Parks already are. Although I may look like a kook, I've decided Im going to wear my 1/2 mask P100 respirator even when I go to the bank, post office, or market.
