The story goes on to say the angler gave two away to other fishermen. Since the limit on this particular species is one, I am wonder- ing if the angler is in viola- tion. The captain of the boat said the anglers catch was legal because, he said, after limits have been reached by the passengers, it is permissible for them to keep fishing and catch the crew's limit offish. Is this true? --Curtis F. Answer: If the angler was fishing on a commercial passenger fishing vessel, or party boat, and she gave the fish to other anglers who had not riffled their limits prior to exiting the boat, she was not in violation. Regarding the crew's limit, the captain was wrong. Passengers can- not legally catch fish under the limits allowed for the cap- tain and crew. The captain and crew must keep their fish separate from fish caught by passengers. The regulation on this reads: "The vessel operator(s) and crew members are not passengers and maynot take fish towards obtaining boat limits for passengers except for casting, setting, hunter and am trying to ordinances and any restric- trolling gear, gaffing or make sure I am doing things ti6ns with the netting fish, but may take correctly.

Is this sort o.f contest legal in California and can you point me in the right direction to re- search the laws and regula- tions? --Brian N.
