New rules ban gillnets for hooligan in Cook Inlet, Resurrection Bay

Posted: Monday, April 23, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Spring means hooligan fishing, and the state Department of Fish and Game is reminding people that new rules ban the use of gillnets in Cook Inlet and Resurrection Bay.

The new regulation was adopted by the Board of Fisheries last year. It means hooligan can be taken only with dipnets in those waters.

The season runs from April 1 through May 31, with no permit required and no catch limit.
