>>Sometimes we had to change the path of the submersible to avoid

Huh? What is a recreational fishing net?
I've dove a lot of places that are heavily fished by recreational fishers. I've picked up lures in the Horseshoe
Kelp. I've dodged the lines on the Isthmus High spot. There
seems to be no comparisson in those heavily fished places to
what I've seen every time I've seen a net... which I am sure was commercial.
Now I'm sure that sometimes line is tossed overboard, but mostly it is lost to snags and probably stays in place...
I don't know what to make of this obviously expertly done report, but this makes me seriously scratch my head.
Well, at least they didn't mention getting humng up on Goody Bags.
Enjoy, seahunt
