I totally respect those that follow a slot-limit rule & encourage others who catch alot of Bass to do so if possible.....
Me & Juan have our days,but we NEVER have those 30-50 fish days that the hardcore,get out at 4am to fish the greylight bite fisherman do.
We're weekend warriors who get a gentleman's start at whenever-thirty & if we catch a LIMIT of keepers between us we're MORE than happy...:P
BTW...,I don't even EAT fish except some Halibut & some occasional Rockfish tacos or Sandbass ceviche.Juan however,was raised on fish & his family loves it.I warned him of the danger of too much SMB fish too.On this day however I knew we were gonna get blown out early & we actually only got 3 sandbass & 6 sand dabs that day.2 calicos were released.2 weeks ago when he got his big Halibut we only got that,1 big sandie & a few dabs....,(all caught by him).
My only fish was a appr. 5lb Calico that I released w/o even taking a pic or giving it a 2nd thought.Juan still looks at me like I'm Crazy when I do that...
Anyway,I just wanted to thank everyone for they're responses & I know Lal was only looking out for the best interest of our local fishery & I respect Him for it.
See ya all on the water...!!!
