Can anyone explain to me why the spring quota is so much more then the summer quota? Why isnt it 50% spring and 50% summer?

There is much more pressure on the spring seasons, both from the sport fleet and the charter fleet. I always make a point of getting out in the spring, but there are more opportunities for other species in the summer that seem to get in the way of targeting halibut.

Do not forget the un-used quota if any, is usually carried over to summer. So, put a lot on spring season so you do not get cut off, right.
