if you go on the *name removed*, the operator will ensure you get someone elses fish if you don't catch anything. i saw this great welfare deal this last weekend. a 12 year old girl caught a halibut that weighed as much as her #100. she was so exited. also a 16 year old girl caught a huge ling cod. no one else on the boat, to include me did very well. imagine the pleasure those 2 little girls had catching the biggest fish of their lives and being told they were required to will give half up to share with the other parties on the boat that didn't catch fish. the girls will continue to enjoy providing half of the fish they caught to their own families for meals. what a great lesson in "fairness".
is this a common or legal practice on the Valdez boat charters now?
