Re: Calling all spearfishermen!!!!! URGENT!!!!!!! Please re

So this thread thats linked in makes it very clear that this guy is calling for a standup between non comsumptive divers and consumptive divers.. i.e. He seems to think the only thing divers want to do is create a "petting zoo" out of fishing areas? I might not have enough history or cont...

So apparently we're in violent agreement, then, but you just need to pontificate about how you're the only one addressing "the perspective of the majority." Violent agreement, I like that. I never said I was the only one addressing anything. I never said anything about the majorities pers...

Re: WDFW GPO update: Seacrest Cove 1,2,3 now included in opt

Bob, I may have been unclear about my "option E" idea. The main points of my "option E" example were two things. 1, don't include H&L fishermen in any ban, ie, make harvest of octo off limits to divers only, and say so specifically. Don't say"except for fishing from the ...

Yes, although they are rarely targeted and are more often than not bycatch.

Re: WDFW GPO update: Seacrest Cove 1,2,3 now included in opt

So how many people went to jail or got cited with the incident at Alki? Pretty sure it was zero. That's because no laws were violated. There's a thing called free speech and taking photos in public is also protected. Just because no one was cited or went to jail doesn't mean no law was broken. Your...

And for all practical purposes, we could shut down any hunting in these areas just by shaming, naming and shunning the people that do it. This is illegal.

I think these are Humbolts? 4-6' long? Big, but not the giant?


I think you are correct. The giant squid are 13m long, just under 40 feet. I don't think swimming around with them would be such a good idea.
