If I'm reading the regs right, you can still fish for reds using rod and reel if you get your personal use limit dipnetting. Does that sound correct? One guy told me last year that after he gets his limit he just moves down the beach away from the dipnet area and tries for a few more with his rod. Seems like it would be a good time to try it, since on a good dipnetting day a lot of the fish are going to be within casting distance of the beach. I assume some of the fish will hit eggs or a lure if they're still in salt water.
Just wondering if anyone does this and has any advice (other than "don't fish in the dipnetting area", that is). Thanks!
