I have hooked 4 Salmon the last couple of times I have been fishing the beach in front of my house. It is in Marine Area 8.1 and if I interpret the rules correctly I cannot keep Salmon until August . I managed to actually land one of them. The knot on my hook failed on one, I had a LDR and the 3rd one broke a 1X tippet. I have been using a 6wt rod and fishing for SRC. My question is if I use my 8 wt rod could that be interpreted as targeting Salmon? I know I can't keep them but is it OK to fish for them?
