The last thread is closed? The problem I see is in the Homer area the average size fish is 18lbs, a one fish limit for charters may do more damage then good if the captains allow their clients to release multiple fish trying to get one larger one and may just put more pressure on the already depleted larger fish. I have seen the large fish in this area go to few and far between through the years and some who are hollering the loudest over the proposed changes are the ones who did the most damage as far as harvesting so many large fish, now the fishing for halibut is poor at best. I'm sure the commercial fishery draggers etc. are having an impact, although the charter fleet needs to look at the real impact they have had through the years and stop playing the blame game, they are now running 50- 60 miles for ling cod because they have already wiped out the decent fishing closer in. I would be in favor of some kind of protection on the larger halibut and a more liberal limit on the more abundant smaller ones.
