    I'm thankful that a handful of commercial fishermen gave us some fish. I think that's pretty cool that there's gonna be a three day opener for sockeye and I know there are a huge number of people that are excited about the opener. I hope the tribe does get some good PR from all this. Now, if you'll excuse me I've got to try and find someone with a boat..hint, hint[/QUOTE]

    Write them a letter telling them how much you appreciate the bone. Perhaps in the future the commercials will throw you a few more. Maybe you can roll over and play dead for them.

    Not sure why you think I am being hostile. I simply stated that I am not going to get real thankful because some commercial fishermen felt sorry for us poor sport fishermen and gave away a few fish. Considering the hundreds of thousands of fish caught by the commercial fishing industry each year a few thousand reds given up by them isn't going to get me all gushy.

    Have you hugged a gill netter today?

    I don't gamble.

    Wow, what a fantastic strategy with sound biological basis. These are the things that make me go: hmmmm??

    Nearly the first equation you learn in population ecology:

    Population size (N) (at time t+1) = N (at time t) + birth - death.

    The first two components are unlikely to be similar for the three runs, though they treat the management of their death the same. That's the problem with alot of wildlife management, they are always managing for the present or past [N(t), N(t-x)], not the future [N(t+1)].

    But heck, why would we want to do that? Genius.

    What you simply stated was that I roll over and play dead.
    We can agree to disagree.
    It's kinda funny a couple a flyfishermen arguing over a three day fishery that is for all intensive purposes the antithesis of flyfishing, ie. huge lake, huge crowd, meat fishery with gear down deep.

    I can see where you might have taken that statement as hostile.

    From where I sit the only reason the commercials gave away a few thousand fish is the fact it is a highly visible fisheries and they were looking for some positive press. From the outsider looking in point of view it probably appears as if the commercials are being quite benevolent to the unwashed masses of sport fishermen.
