Damn that is an insane rule. I can't how many times porpoise show up and follow us for miles while trolling. What the hell are we supposed to do? Everytime they show up, pick up and run? That is BS
Remove "it" from the water??? What defines "it"?If a marine mammal approaches your gear, remove it from the water.
I copied it straight from the NMFS website.No freeking way this is bs
You are correct. This is nothing new.if i am not mistaken, this is nothing new, perhaps just a different interpretation, for as long as i can remember you/we have had stay clear of marine mammals
Did it taste like chicken?we once had a porpoise hit our green machine spread bar set out on the 80s during a bigeye bite. Let me tell you, those things pull harder than a swordfish. Didn't want to lose the spreader, so we sunk two gaffs in the beatch and dragged it thru the transom door and 3 of us beat it silly til we got the speader bar back.
