    Not sure what the regs are out there. It's just funny that once a fish crosses an imaginary line you can or can't keep/kill it.

    Yeah i totally agree. Doesnt make a lot of sense to me.

    I was just thinking though that the inside waters of area 4 were open to either clipped or native until they closed just the inside portion very recently. Ocean is still open.

    The fog story reminds me of tons of close run-ins like that when I was growing up. One of the best was our main engine crapping out in the shipping lanes and trying to get out of them with only a 9 horse kicker. Glad to hear it was only a near miss. Thanks for sharing.

    I was out along the coast in front of Long Beach, Wa in 25 feet of water and the coho/nooks were in pretty thick as was the bait. It was a war zone with the birds diving into the water. Group of 4 had limits in less than a couple of hours. I had the fly rod, but based on your post I was not equipped properly with my beach gear (intermediate line and modestly weighted clouser). I did get one tug but most of the fish were taken between 12-20 feet down. It's hard to get your fly down when the other three are trolling anchovy. Also, hard to compete with a real anchovy. I finally gave in and used gear since they were against drifting and we had to get back to check crab pots and take care of kids.
