Closed year-round? WTF? I thought all that descending stuff was so we could have an all-depth fishery from March-June and again after Sept. 1st??!!
From pg. 109 of the new rag. Yes rag.

@Happy Daze can you clarify this? I know you’ve put in a lot of work on this and can explain the area 3/4 Outside rules. Area 4 East and area 5 has been closed for bottomfish deeper than 120 for years.

That bottom fishing depth closure has been in effect for all marine areas inside the Bonilla-Tatoosh line except retention of ling and Pacific cod allowed on halibut days. Use of the descender devices has gone a long way to mitigate NOAA/NMFS concerns over impacts on ESA listed rockfish during increased halibut days.
