Crew fishing limits

Question: A Southern California fishing website posted about an angler catching three white sea bass, and there’s a photograph clearly showing the angler in possession of three white sea bass. The story goes on to say the angler gave two away to other fishermen. Since the limit on this particular species is one, I am wondering if the angler is in violation. The captain of the boat said the anglers catch was legal because, he said, after limits have been reached by the passengers, it is permissible for them to keep fishing and catch the crew’s limit of fish. Is this true?

The Saturday Night Races was no picnic for the race cars. They were held in conjunction with the County Picnic and a car show at the fairgrounds June 2. In the beginning, mud was flying on the track. Later it was the cars.

The Maddbuzz race team was victorious in the Pure Mini race. Lance “Slick” Bain lead by 0.802 second against his teammate Jon Busselen. Brittney Nieman followed for third. Lary Whitebird retired after nine laps. This class continues to jostle for first place.

Night Diving for Scallops?

Question: Is it legal to dive for scallops at night? I have found in the regulations where it says that clams may not be taken at night but I cannot find regulations that apply to scallops. Can you help?

—George B.

Newport Beach

Answer: Yes, you may dive for scallops at night. The restriction on digging for clams at night does not apply in this situation. The regulations you are looking for are covered under the General Invertebrate provisions in the California Code of Regulations, Title 14, section 29.05, which states in part, “Except as otherwise provided in this article there are no closed hours for any invertebrate.”
