Check out our Bluebone fishing shirt for your next fishing adventure. If you want to catch blue bones, you should know that they are very sensitive to barotraumata when caught at depths of more than 10 m. So we would not encourage capture and release into deeper waters. Both can be productive, depending on the tide, the amount of water moving, and the type of soil. After many years of fishing in Bluebone, we prefer to drop anchor in the same place. Fish can easily scare and we believe we are more successful when our baits are in the same place. A heavy tackle should be used when Bluebone is targeted, not only because they are fighting an incredible fight, but also because sharks are never far behind. We prefer spinning coils that are wound with an 80-pound braid on a heavy 20-25 kg rod. We also use 60 fluorocarbon guide books for our drill rigs, as it`s a bit harder to see than mono. The type of hooks we use are circular hooks usually sizes 6/0 – 7/0 when fishing with the blue leg, they are much more likely to hang the fish around the mouth and release smaller fish much more easily and better for the fish.
Boat limits apply to dhufish, blue swimming crabs, mud crabs, squid, squid, squid, green/brown-lipped abalone, and stone lobe. “fillet” means any specific piece of fish, other than a whole fish, a fish trunk, a head, tail, fin, spine or wing. In order for these parts to be excluded from the property line, they must be completely removed from the net. “Trunk” refers to a fish whose head and tail have been removed. Large pelagic species such as mackerel can be cut into two pieces and still be considered a whole fish or strain of fish. The blackhead tuber (Choerodon schoenleinii), also known as bluebone, is a wrasse native to the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific. They look a lot like a parrotfish, but can be easily distinguished by their teeth. Size restrictions allow fish to reach maturity to complete their breeding cycle. Measure all your fish and bring back alive in the water undersized or excess fish. For example, emperors (with the exception of blue-lined emperors) have an individual daily pocket limit of three in all bioregions except the West Coast.
They are also within a daily pocket limit for mixed species of five (for all demersals in these bioregions). 1.5 m max or interdorsal length 60cm max (beams with a round body shape must only respect the maximum size limit of 1.5 m) Fish without size restriction can be transported and landed at sea: The two platforms that we found very good for Bluebone capture are the paternoster and the current diver. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, but we usually use a paternoster, which has the advantage of not getting caught as often when fishing in a lot of structures. When a blue leg bites most of the time, it first crushes the bait to make sure it is dead, then comes back and eats it. For this reason, it is important not to hit or move your bait if you feel the bite that we usually give it a few seconds before lifting the rod to hook the fish. Prevention is better than cure – to avoid catching undersized or excess fish, it`s best to stop fishing once you`ve reached your pocket limit. Legal fishing gear is described below; Everything else is illegal. Note: Fishing gear stores may carry equipment that does not meet WA`s legal requirements. In particular, the use of crab traps, “opera” traps and bait devices with more than three hooks is illegal in Washington State waters. Please check before making a purchase. Bluebone can be caught on a variety of baits of squid, squid, crustaceans and a variety of crustaceans. The baits that work well for us are shrimp and crabs.
Estuary cod, Malabar cod and barramundi (all of which have a maximum size limit) must be transported whole at sea (although they can be eviscerated and walled), in estuaries and rivers and completely landed, unless prepared or consumed for direct consumption. Using bait for Bluebone can also be productive. Everything from flies for shallow and shallow water fish to soft jigs and plastics in deeper waters. For bag and size restrictions, fish are classified according to their aquatic environment: illegal fishing can include someone who sets nets in the river, crosses their pocket or possession limits, catches undersized fish, fishes in a closed area, has more fishing gear in the water than they should, or sells illegally caught fish in his spare time. Warning: There are many ways to target and catch Bluebone depending on the area you are in.
