This week on the water

Good news for the Public Halibut fishery. The Public fisheries advisory board has forwarded recommendations to the Department to Fisheries regarding halibut regulations for the 2019 season. A hybrid model has been proposed where anglers can choose a single fish between 90 -126cm (60lbs) or a possession (1 per day) of 2 fish under 90cm. If accepted by DFO this hybrid model will enable the public to keep larger fish again after a tough past season where all fish over 40lbs had to be released.
