    The first full-moon in May is a real good time for dippin' the little guys.

    For several years we had a family hooligan dipping outing on Mothers' Day weekend. We gave up after failing to find any way to prepare them that we really liked. Smoked wasn't too bad, deep fried was edible and baked was NASTY. Mid May would be my suggestion.

    I haven't caught any hooligan yet, but can you stock up on these and use them as halibut bait...legally?

    Absolutely, they are not considered sport caught fish.

    Default personal use fishery

    hooligan fall under the personal use fishery category, just like dipping reds at the kenai.

    so you can eat them, use them for bait, use them for fertilizer, use them to feed to your dogs-pretty much anything you want as long as you're not making money of it.
