Thank you to EVERYONE who stopped by our booth at the Anchorage Boat Show this weekend…it was great to chat with you all and we look forward to seeing you on the water this summer.
And, of course, we need to offer a major kudos and thanks to Boat Rental Manager, Greg Clifford, who made the drive out from Whittier! We’d also like to express our gratitude to the great team at Peregrine Falcon Boats, builders of the Meagan Anne and the Elaine C. Can’t wait to meet up again…
Here is the latest for area 3A (us) on the IPHC meeting:
Many thanks to the few from our side who attended.
The 2017 IPHC conference is coming to a close.
Charter management measures for 3A:
1.To finish daily bag limit
2. Maximum size of one fish under 28 inches
3. One fish of any size.
4. Each vessel is limited to one trip in the calendar day.
5. A CHP permit is limited to one trip in the calendar day
6. No halibut Charters on Wednesdays for the entire year.
7. No halibut Charters on Tuesday, July 18, 25, and August 1 of 2017
8. 4 fish annual bag limit.
Even though we lost three more days for the season the stock continues to show signs of recovery and for area 3A we did get about a 500,000 pound bump
Happy New Year and thank you for your support in the past. The season is only four months away! Choice dates are filling, so drop us a line if you’d like to reserve space. Although we may have some extra “no halibut” days in July, the regulations will remain the same as in 2016. I’ll post an update as soon as we hear something from the IPHC. We’ll be starting as soon as the weather breaks with our spring special trips and there is no better time to fill the freezer for a great price. Whether you choose a day trip or an overnighter, rates are cut deeply through May 15. Call anytime for more info.
