30 years ago it was against the law to fillet while out to sea.
D.F.G. didn't want the fish filleted at sea because they couldn't measure them.
Bill Poole and other sporting captians in San Diego saw money to be made, they could pay the deck hands less and let them keep the fish cleaning money.
Also more people would go fishing if they could come home with fish ready to be cooked not uncleaned fish.
Well the San Diego sportfishing fleet got the D.F.G. to change the laws to fit themselfs.
