I totally agree. It's hard to compete with the commercial guys when they have traps every 50-100 feet, for 24-7, at my favorite dive spots in the Malibu area. I've heard that they get 90% of their take withen the first 3 months of the season. And probable most of that withen the first month. It gets pretty hard for a sport diver to find a legal bug later into the season.
The easy solution would be for commercial fisherman to have a slightly larger size limit, say 1/4 inch, then the sport divers would have a more equitable opportunity.
