Ghost net near upper harbor?
« on: August 10, 2016, 03:55:28 PM »

Heard a ghost net claimed two down riggers and ripped them right off the boat this week near upper harbor. Be on the look out!

I posted this last July on forum.  May be same net.  I also reported it but do not know if they did anything.  It was all rotted when our gear came up.

This was a bit east and south of upper harbor if I remember.   I attached a screen shot of my gps with coordinates.

I just reported it to glifwc. I'm confident they will go look for it at very least. Be safe out there guys.
