With summer officially over and the arrival of much cooler Fall weather, the local wild rockfish has “gone ashore” and started trapping in the pound-nets. These are not entanglement nets. These nets trap the fish alive.
If you travel the Bay, you will notice what looks like a long 200-yard backyard fence in the water that leads to a “pound”. The pound is a netted square area with a trap door. The fish travel down the backyard fence, enter the trap door, and then can’t figure out how to escape.
