Well they(wdfw) are currently lining up for the co manager meeting that will be getting pounded out shortly. After the meeting we will find out how our representatives (wdfw) took the news and what future offerings we give up to maintain a one or two week season. It will likely be determined that in coming seasons we will not deserve anything though.

More of the same across the sound. 4 hrs a year. Maybe two 4hr sessions if we’re lucky. Expect major reductions in MA7 this year based on last years Covid turn out and insane pressure. WDFW is forecasting similar turnout so they cut dates to create more crowds. Not tribal related for once.

I think your crystal ball got a bit cloudy with your Area 9 prediction. Last year we had to fight to get a second opener mid-week in MA 9. But 4 days w/4 hours might work with a 20 shrimp limit.

And did that crystal ball died before it could cough up something on 2E (8-1/8-2)?

    I checked my magic eight ball and it says we’ll also have a better season in area six except discovery bay. 😁

    Well that will be over quick in 8-11. Love the late start, cant expect the enforcement folks to have to get up early.

    Phuk me. IT's going to be another combat shrimping drill X2 in 8-11. Wonder if they will extend the season in MA7, it's never been that short. Shit, it only gets worse....

    Do not fucking board me during my 3 hours a year! Few years back we burned about 30 minutes getting searched. Actually had to pull gear after hours because of it. But back in those days we got a generous 4 hours in EB.

    3 hrs really makes you think about who comes with you. filling my freezer comes first. I know they count boats, I know they count floats. Whats their formula for number of peeps per boat. Have not been checked on the water or in the marina so they dont have actual numbers on my boat.
