    King salmon used as crab bait, troopers say


    From the Alaska State Troopers:

    Location: Sitka
    Type: Personal use shellfish violations
    On 8/31/13 Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Sitka Post, inspected gear in the Peril Strait area. Investigation revealed that multiple pots being fished by *** * ****** 67, of Anchorage, did not comply with biodegradable escape mechanism requirements, and that ****** was using edible portions of king salmon as crab bait. ****** was cited for one count of no biodegradable escape mechanism, with bail set at $110. He also was issued a summons to appear in Sitka District Court on the charge of using sport-caught king salmon as bait.

    Know lots of guys that use salmon bellies and collars for halibut/crab bait.

    In my book, those are the MOST edible part of the salmon.

    Who ever said it was bellies and collars? Is this just smoke and mirrors again!
