Sorry, I should have been more clear! I was talking about the fishing license and I was told it had to be ON you, not on or in a float. I put mine in a couple of zip lock bags and stuffed it in my dive sock. Seemed to stay dry.
Sounds to me like you talked with a hardas*. I've never had this problem. The guys in the field only care that you have it readily accessable upon exiting the water. On board a boat or on the beach. That kind of thing. May be the guy you talked to was having a bad day  :dontknow:

I would have to agree with that, but might want to look it up come the dive day though.
Need a partner mid week? PM me!!!!

How's the Geoduck hunting there?  What's the limit?  From what I read, it's mostly found up north in Washington and Oregon. 
I think there's a place down in Cali that has Geoduck but it's much smaller than the ones in up North.  I'd be interested in doing a road trip.

Matt's right you can take them all year round. You can get the license pretty much anywhere and it's actually only a shell fish license. You HAVE to go to an oregon fish and game station to pick up the ABALONE TAG. Two different things. There are stations along the coast in Brookings, Charleston and Newport. Brookings will put you closer to the better hunting grounds.
And don't forget the scallops!!! There are lots here!

Just when my wife thought she'd found a place where I wouldn't be gone for 4 hours a day, boy is she going to be disappointed by the end of the Oregon trip. For some reason I told her July would be a good time to leave the state.

Clayton, sounds like you live up there?

Yes I live here. Sadly in the northern part of the state (Portland) pretty far from the abalone action. Still southern oregon is a lot closer than Sonoma/Mendo county! I haven't gotten in the water in southern oregon yet (my wife stands firm on the buddy system as in "hey buddy you're not going unless you have a buddy!"), but I've seen some spots that look promising.

Don't worry Brandon, all my abs for the comp will have green tags on them. It still would be awesome to get some abs out of Oregon. I hope California never has to drop down to Oregon's limits, 1 a day and 5 a year can you imagine :bs:. What is the history on abs in Oregon? Were the limits higher in the past? Did they allow commercial ab fishery up there or what?

FYI they have 2 species of abalone red and I think pinto abalone which only grow to about 5 to 6 inches at the bigest.

Good question relating to the history of abalone in Oregon and where there more abalone at one time.  I assume you are looking to a justification why the limit seems low as compared to California.  Your answer is: Oregon biologist determined given the stock status and the biological considerations of the species of abalone in the Oregon waters and habitat conditions related; the daily bag and yearly limits were designed to allow harvest and at the same time to ensure that sustainable populations of abalone would continue given all things remained status quo.

Given the previous statement requires an understanding that one must not assume the biological conditions of the California coast and the Oregon coast are one in the same, they are not.  This "Not" condition is the explanation and the justification as to why you see different limits and size limit for abalone along the Oregon coast.  The two areas are completely different bio regions and the populations densities and species of abalone differ because of this. The old apple and orange comparison.

Hope this helps.
