Kenai Dipnetting is going to 24/7 starting wed. Its about time. You should see the reason they give why. They now believe the kenai sockeye run will be more than two million, I wonder how they figured that out? Maybe because the comercial boats have already netted that much, and they still only have 300,00 up the river. I am normally very patient and reasonable about this stuff, ( check my posts ) but this really ticks me off. Only three hundred thousand up the river and over 2 million in comercialnets on a run that they believed might only be 2 million on the low end, what where they going to do if no more fish showed up? Truck them over from the kasilof? and to make matters worse its only now that there is only one week left to net, and they finally open it up to 24 hour dipnetting and sportfish limits of 6. Only after commercial nets get over 2 million
Just for the record I used to commercial fish, and I have guided, so I look at things from both sides, but this was wrong!!!!
