    Default Enforcement for the win!!

    Rumor is that a boat out of seldovia was busted with #1600 of tanners. (Or 1600 crab) working on more info. Apparently someone saw him pulling multiple pots and tipped off the troopers.

    I wonder to whom this operator would sell his catch. May well be only the first domino to fall.

    You shouldn't have posted who provided the tip.

    I pulled my pot out of tutka Friday- It had 2 keepers in it. I thought that was funny because my pot has been swimming for 5 weeks due to boat trouble. I expected bio twine to be broken or anything but crab. Well, someone had moved my bait bag to the bottom and clipped it there- then I noticed that it was full of small fresh black cod! I had a lot of empty pulls starting out- and was in good area. Makes you wonder how many times this bugger robbed your pot! That's the only time it was baited tho. After seeing the black cod- I would say not just anyone has those in there freezer, so it's a good guess on a commercial boat.

    I have not seen anything yet either in dispatches. Not allot of boats in Seldovia over the winter. And hope it was not a blue boat.

    I haven’t been able to verify as yet. Kid has pneumonia, I’ve been preoccupied.

    This may be BS. Hit all my contacts in LEO and no one has heard anything.

    There was a bust over near Juneau on the 17th for tanners. Maybe someone got the story mixed up.
