Re: Seines create sport fishing closures

You hit the nail on the head! The fresh water rivers are the nurseries for the salmon that support the commercial fleets of both U.S and Canada's not to mention the Russians and other foreign...

Re: Hartop boat ?

I have owned both and the pros and cons cancel each other out. There are other things in a boat that are more important to consider before buying.

Re: Anti-snagging/anti-flossing NEW rule change for Oregon

Too many rules already, not enough cops to enforce existing rules. Remove the motivation by giving away excess salmon at hatcheries to whoever wants. Let the commercial fishermen fund and operate...

Re: part of the solution or part of the problem?

Speaking of solutions and problems, just why are those non clipped hatchery fish illegal to keep? I understand it is to protect the Tule heading to the lower rivers such as the Lewis. Why not outlaw...

Re: Lower Columbia Commercial Gillnet Schedule?

It didn't work. That was why hatcheries were constructed in the 1870's, to replenish diminishing Salmon runs. It is simple math. We still have Salmon because of their resilliance not because of...

Re: The Columbian: Short spring chinook season likely in lower Columbia

Salmon population is down all along the west coast including Alaska, in streams with and without dams. The common denominator is over harvesting. Addressing that, is something that can be done...

Re: OPB story on Measure 81

Hopefully measure 81 passes and there will be a clearer direction of where we are going with this socialistic enterprise.

Re: listen to this on meas. 81

Have the gill netters come on board with the governors plan or are they lurking in the shadows waiting for an opportunity to sabotage any progress, especially with their cronies at Salem and Olympia?

How are you voting on measure 81 and why?

Voting yes would send a strong message to the politicians, the gill net community and the ODFW to take us seriously. If it passes-GREAT, but even if 81 gets gets close to passing without the support...

Re: Measure 81 garbage

Do you just make things up as you go? Gill netters can make a 5% donation to the cause. Talk about socialism.

Re: Can Gill netters lay nets across the navigation channel?

Re: Oregon Reduces Annual Sturgeon Limit

Proper proceedure for hogline release

I was wondering what steps do you take when you hook a salmon in a hogline. Do you reel in the other rods first or release the boat from the anchor rope first? Leave the wind socks in the water to...

Re: Hog-Line etiquette question

I have found that by motoring up between 2boats in a hogline, one is signaling his intention to drop anchor there. If you don't get any objections from the other boats as your doing that, they may...

Re: The Only Gillnet thread - Part III

If that was anywhere near average for the fleet, that should do it for the season, also would be encouraged by the numbers of fish in the river (or where in the river).
