Phil on the Shellback will go down there from time to time and I think Seaweasel charters trips there too.

Here are some links to view about releasing rockfish:

Here is a press release the Department issued in 2005:
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/news/news05/05109.html
Here is a pamphlet:

Here is a giant sea bass article:

A pamphlet developed by Oregon Sea Grant. They discuss venting, but say it is the least-preferred method: http://seagrant.oregonstate.edu/sgpubs/onlinepubs/g05001.pdf

Jan,
Thanks for the info. I have always said that I am not smart enough to come up with the great ideas but I am at least smart enough to recognize them when they hit me in the face.

I particularly like the design of the weighted device in the Oregon Sea Grant info. I'll be keeping one of those rigged on the boat next year.

TunaHead,

Thats the same concept I tried to explain in my post about the upside down hook, thanks for the pic. I keeep one in my jig bucket with my other lead when rock fishing on sporties. The crate setup is the stowed in the boat holding other gear but easy to get too (not good for sporties).

Interesting link Keta, thanks. On another note what about their idea of using big enough hooks to discourage smaller fish? Any thoughts?

Hoggem' is on their Board of Directors and I helped a little in it's start up. No radical save the earth dickheads on the current board. Board members are for sustainable harvest.

I too believe in venting fish prior to release. This is something that you all might be interested in. Team Marine USA has developed a new venting tool that is effective and safer to use than many home-made models. Here is the website where you can find information on the tool (called the Pre-Vent).

www.teammarineusa.us

Hope this helps.

I intend to discuss this with the charter captains in Trinidad and provided them with the tools to vent if they choose to do so.

I saw them venting them in Texas and would appreciate an article (with pictures/drawing) as the links posted do not show how to vent. Something is better than nothing but leaving floaters, my kid will never catch.
