      The season is open from April 1-Dec 31 and the limit is only one but I'm not sure why. However, the limit went to 2 per person on June 1.
    2. Graham Kemp 0
      Why is the daily limit only one?
    3. Scott Randall 0
      Graham, I agree it is a weird looking fish but it's delicious and highly sought after with a daily catch limit of only one.
