I told Tom right off the bat this morning on the way down to the beach, that if i hook a monster i wanted him to remind me that it's a beyoch to carry it back. So after the fish was photograped and weighed i looked back and told Tom to release it. The face on these people were another treat to see ;D

Hey DX2, Harvester? I let the 17lbr go, got totally soaked reviving 916's fish and only kept the small one as I had a request at home for some fresh striper. By the way it was tasty ;)

It's called personal choice D_D. That's the diversity you should expect when you are out fishing a diverse group of people fishing for the same game fish. I do not think if one that choose to keep his/her limit should be called by any other name than a fisherman. As long as he possesses a valid fishing liscence. I agree w/ you that there are some that have a hard time understanding C&R but I have told those that I am associated with when its brought up that it is a matter of personal preference. I do however frown on those that keep over their limit but labeling just doesn't seat w/ me very well. Now being called a "ROOKIE" I can take. Besides, are you implying that you never "harvested" stripers or any other game fish?
Just my $.02 worth and not to rain on you guys' parade.

I think what Dx2 means by harvester is something we have all seen on the beach. you see people on Saturday and they get thier limit of fish. no problem. But then on Sunday you see the same guys taking thier limit again. to me this is harvesting not to mention poaching.
There is nothing wrong with keeping a bass or two but four in two days is not cool.

Double_D, Please correct me if I am wrong.

PlugROCKSTAR
08-01-2005, 09:00 AM
i've seen 3fish with one individual on Saturday. Thats harvesting and straight up poaching.

h00kie
08-01-2005, 09:17 AM
Like I said, I do not agree w/ taking over the limit. The thing is we all know each other here and that we joke around each other like that at the beach and we understand that it's all in good humor. However, there are readers that are not associated w/ the rest of us that might take offense to what is being said here.
There are fine individuals in our group and there are those that are less admirable, I just don't think that it is a wise game to play in the web where anybody that don't know us as individuals would presume that the group are a bunch of @$$#0(es, that's all!

Yep. the surf conditions were great but there were not too many fish. Same with Sunday. Glad you guys hooked up. See, you don't have to climb rocks to catch fish.

Believe it or not but a lot of the guys that do catch more than their limit will give their fish away. I know that the law says when you reach your limit you're done fishing. I think it's an ethics call but you do see over limits in any kind of fishing.

Ok, how’s This:

The Sacramento Harvester is coming down this weekend to raise hell with the stripers. Be on the look out for a man carrying 20 fishing pole and a truck load of family members (none of which will actually be fishing) They will have 25 coolers full of ice to pass the harvested fish down the line so each person can have their “limit”.
He may also be carrying TNT or other explosives to stun fish for easy hand grabbing in the water.
He may also be “playing” with the Dungeness Crabs that are beaching themselves to lay eggs right now by placing them securely in plastic bags and into the cooler or trash cans so the crabs cannot hurt themselves any further.
If you see this Sacramento Harvester, please call the DFG, 911, ATF, and the FBI immediately.
