Actually yes.  Big fish seldom catch in small mesh and small fish squirt through big mesh.

I'm not sure where you gillnet, but on the Columbia they catch 3 lb. sockeye and 50 lb. sturgeon while fishing 8" mesh for 17 lb. summer chinook.

They don't encounter any sockeye and sturgeon when they aren't legal to sell, of course.  At least that's what they say.  Scouts honor.

Governor sleazy is letting to kill nets all the way up to Bonneville Dam Monday May 23. For a guy that says he’s all about Green energy. Must’ve misspoke and meant Green as in money🤔🤔🤔
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Growing up on a Puget Sound beach, I’ve seen the destruction of our Salmon runs by gillnets firsthand.
Notice how they wish to rename them “tangle nets” and “large mesh”.  It doesn’t matter what you call them, they are indiscriminate walls of death.
Small fish, large fish, all get caught and killed.  If you leave them out they collect birds as well.
It amazes me that Susewind calls them a “management tool”  :bash:
If you were a commercial fisherman, why would you want to use anything else?  The phrase “kill them all and let God sort them out” comes to mind.  The netters like playing God.

Which beach did you grow up on? Interesting.

Do they still net at night?  They used to run them nearly shore to shore and drift down the river at night.

Unlike recreational fishermen, they are well organized and seem to make their voices heard well.
