And look... I'm not here to demonize the commercial fishermen. They're just hard-working folks trying to earn an honest living the way they've been accustomed... it's culture, it's tradition. OK yeah... I get it.

They will fish in EXACTLY the most efficient, least labor-intensive, and most cost-effective manner permitted under the law.

The guys making and implementing the rules shoulder the responsibility to the resource.

The rule makers (Commissioners) have made their wishes known... it's the Policy. The problem is a rogue agency (WDFW) that cannot discipline itself to implement the policy as written. Instead WDFW willfully breeches the policy guidance and breaks the rules regardless.

Time for the Commission step up to the plate... demand a payback in 2018 and 2019. Defiant/incompetent heads MUST roll!
