Default Halibut season changes-chance for input

OK folks, ODFWis proposing some good changes to halibut season. These changes have to get the PFMC stamp of approval and will be presented at the September meeting. You have at most a week to send in your comments.

To see the proposed changes, go to
Pcouncil.org
And find the link to the Sept briefing book. Go to
Agenda item G.1. 2A Catch Sharing Plan Preliminary Changes”
Read the proposed changes, give them some consideration and then go to

https://www.pcouncil.org/council-ope...riefing-books/

to send your comments.

I’m at the coast and using my iPad, I would copy the proposed changes and post them here if I was at home using my computer. I know it could be done on this, but if it’s easy for you, I’d be happy for you to post them.

IMO these proposed changes will allow ODFW to provide more opportunity for us when possible and we should support the changes. We want them to be responsive and we should support them in changing the “rules” so they can be more responsive.

We had a SAC meeting this evening, I think some goood changes will be coming soon.

Great proposed changes from my standpoint. The ability to combine long leader trips with halibut on all depth days would be great. Just left my comments in support.

Minimum size requirement, but I will probably get ran over by a charter boat for saying it!

Allow All-Depth Halibut Fishing and Longleader Gear Fishing on the Same Trip
This would be huge!! Please, please everyone send in a comment of support for this!

And of course, please support the May 1st opening of nearshore....known as "the Wak'm Season"


---------------------------------------------------
OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE REPORT ON PROPOSED CHANGES
TO THE PACIFIC HALIBUT CATCH SHARING PLAN FOR THE 2020 FISHERY

Oregon Coastwide
Allow All-Depth Halibut Fishing and Longleader Gear Fishing on the Same Trip
........ Anglers have requested that this opportunity be allowed when also participating in the all-depth halibut fishery.

Status quo: Longleader gear fishing not allowed on the same trip as all-depth halibut
Alternative 1: Allow longleader gear fishing on the same trip as all-depth halibut

Rationale:
Retention of most species of groundfish is prohibited when participating in the all-depth halibut fisheries to reduce the potential for interactions with and impacts to yelloweye rockfish. Since the longleader gear is specifically designed to avoid yelloweye rockfish and has been demonstrated
successful in that goal, allowing it when fishing for all-depth halibut would add little, if any, additional risk to yelloweye rockfish. If halibut fishing is slow, it would allow anglers additional fishing opportunities while they are offshore.

Have you read the explanation that ODFW/IHPC have for removing the 32" size limit? Basically, implementing that limit has almost no effect on fish available for future years but it does give fishermen a lot more opportunities to keep fish. It's really a win win for fishermen.

I'll also point out that it's not the charters that win, it's the fishermen like you and me. The difference between us and them is that they typically paid a bunch of money for that one day license, hotel and the charter fees to catch that 30" halibut that could never taste better on their plate. I can't see how this is a bad thing considering how little impact it actually has on the fishery.

Most of the people who think there should be a minimum size limit are having an emotional response rather than a logical one. I find that unfortunate.

Those are well thought out amendments

I am all for a minimum length, and nothing emotional about it. Just think a fish less than 32 should grow. Fish ( salmon, lingcod, trout, sturgeon, cabs, etc) have length requirements, nothing new.
Hell deer and elk have minimum requirements, maybe if they removed those restrictions, more people can harvest one....

Please don't....

There's been more years where it's been closed before we arrive at the beginning of August, than not. Really bums me out when it's closed, especially when salmon is also closed and the weather is too rough for tuna.
