Wish bluedogs had some kind of commercial value.
Seems they're getting out of control like dogfish
If you have the proper permits.....2 bucks a pound
Roger that. Never saw more than 30.00/lb fins and now no more sandbars or duskys either. 36 fish per trip blacktips, spinners, bulls, lemons as of now. Season opened up 1/1/13.We used to get 25 cents a pound for everything except tiger that was 1 cent a pound. Never caught a Mako on the long line though. Im talking bars, blacktips, hammers, bulls, tigers and such.
fins were like $38.50 a lb fresh fins. Last run we made with the boat was several years ago now.

Moratorium on permits since 1997. I've got 1 with excellent landings history. Make me an offer I can't refuse......Jo
It was originally on my 35 duffy which had a JD6076afm stated at 300 hp. I understand your question. It maintains an upgrade from that and It can be applied to a 38.5' boat (+10%)and up to 360 hp(+20%)
With the 36 fish trip limit in place I don't know why they did not do away with the upgrade restriction part of the rules but it is what it is. Jo
Yes, Sandbars are a "research" fishery only, which you have to be "randomly" selected each year by way of application which must be submitted every year. That's pretty much all I fished for, for about 20 years.
The rest, unless they are classified "prohibited species" are currently governed by a 36 head trip limit and must be landed with their fins "naturally" attached. That means only headed and gutted, and some states require they be landed with their heads on as well. Makes it hard to pack and then you have to finish "dressing' them at the dock....PITA.
May not be the case in NE; you'll have to check your regional HMS rules. As for here, that's the way it is........Jo
