A friend of mine and I tried to fish south of the hole in the wall (Gwynns Island) on Wednesday. It seemed that every inch of the shoreline was covered for five miles south with commercial gill netters to the point that is was difficult to navigate the shoreline. We managed to catch a few small fish, but it was a wonder that "any" fish could navigate around the endless line of nets. We wonder how long will the commercial gill net season last and who is in charge of regulating the use of the nets.
