Hey Steve this is Debbie, we were going to buy some shrimp pots from you but got too late as you were gone then we went to Australia. Are you really selling your boat? We need a heavy big boat as we are going up the coast to crab and will be anchoring over night.

Hi Debbie,
Congrats on that big canadian rig you guys are buying, ought to be a interesting move cross country with it!! I'm toying with the idea of selling my boat, it changes about every 4 hours, sell don't sell sell don't sell???
Do you know anyone that might be interested? is the boat the right size for those fisheries back there?

I worked on that magna for 2 seasons canyon fishing. I learned a ton on that rig. She's probably the most comfortable well laid out cabin commercial boat i ever worked on. very efficient and stable on the hook in the slop. best of luck in your fishery

Steve,,,,

do you want a bigger boat or gettin out ??????:)[/QUOTE

I don't need bigger thats for sure. I flip flop forth and back all the time with the idea of selling or keeping the rig. I sold out of gillnetting because i thought the shrimp fishery had a future but its looking like its not there, fish and game here doesn't have a good grip on the recreational fishery, 3000 permits were issued last year, each boat(permit) can fish 5 pots, no limit on the number of shrimp that can be caught, long season, lots of egged shrimp taken, 730 pots were lost and are still fishing and the list goes on. The commercial fishery has about 4-6 full time hard core fishermen, fishery only been in exsistance for 3 years, small pot limit 1st year 20 pots, 2nd 40 third 50 and the quota was fairly small 50,000lbs and 2 out of the 3 years it hasn't been caught. Dockage is expensive, 30 bucks a day to tie up transient in the harbor and another $600 a season to park my truck and trailer in the pot holed parking lot, no other choices in that dump of a town where i have to fish out of and its a 200 mile round trip commute to the boat plus $15 to go through the tunnel to get to the harbor, only other place to dock would be a 500 mile round trip to get there.
I always had a boat to make a living with and if its going to cost me a lot of money to keep it then its got to go. Ask me again in a couple of days and i'll be keeping the boat:rolleyes:
