YaH, and even thought they open the season, it doesn't mean they'll let you fish for them anywhere. The talk is they are trying to make: Point Reyes, Faralons and Duxbury Reef no fish zones in a year or two.

Just be sure to read the new regulations here are some of them. *1) You cannot catch rockfish on any days that end in Y. * 2) You may only look at the rockfish you catch at an angle, looking at them straight on is now illegal. *3) The above rules can be avoided if you have a midget dressed as superman fishing on your boat while cooking waffles and tacos. 4) Pictures of your catch may only be taken at an angle and only at the rear of your boat.

I know you are joking/exaggerating to make a point but it's not that far fetched the way things are going. :(

Section 27.99 - 2007 CA Ocean Fishing Regulations states that Hobbits may be utilized in lieu of Little People, if you purchase and possess a Hobbit Substitution Stamp.

It sucks that they're thinking of closing the Farallones to rock fishing. Its all the result of years of unmitigated greed and overfishing. Not that long ago, the bag limit on rock fish there was unlimited! I read just the other day that half the fish you buy in the market now is farm raised because of depletion of wild stocks and that 60% of commercial seafood species have collapsed, meaning they've declined in catch by 90% or more. By 2050, 100% will have collapsed. Sad how bad things have gotten because of greed and waste. :'(

Ab diver, as long as i could remember the limit was 15 rockfish,with 5 lings= 20 fish. There are people saying that rockfish,are in trouble. Its just a ploy to get us off of the water. I just heard that blue rockfish are the next "Troubled spicies" .Dont buy into all of that cr*p!
