Lost fishing licence and abalone report card
« on: October 07, 2009, 12:25:20 PM »
A buddy and I were at Timber cove two weeks ago fishing on his new (used) Hobie peddle kayaks.  After a productive day of fishing, we decided to go into 9" cove to finish out the day with abalone.  With all the hassle of him not putting his hatch cover on, me coming back to shore to find his kayak about 15 yards off shore listing heavily to the starboard side, getting it back to shore, draining the water out, finally got our sh!t together, by the time we got back to the Timber Cove Beach, I realized I didn't have my waterproof licence and ab punchcard container.  (Good thing the warden wasn't around) If found please drop me a line or mail it back.  I have my receipt but, unfortunately don't thinks I can replace the punch card.

I belive if you go to DFG and fill out an afdavid you can get another one. 2 years ago when I lost mine I just went down and bought another one, but to keep honest I only took 8 abalone since that is what I had left on my other /old card. but it is a good idea to make a photo copy of it to show dfg.

Drag about your ppw, that's a hassle!  How was the diving at 9" cove?  Always wanted to check it out.

I went to Big 5 with my licence receipt and was able to get another license and ab card.  I was nervous about getting another ab card, but the lady said with the new license and different number they would know that it was lost.  I was at Timber cove again this Friday and the water was phenominal!!!  9" cove is ok but you have to search for a while.  I got a limit of 9's (9 1/8 -9 1/2) but nothing compared to the 11 1/4 at Fisk Mill.  Fishing off the kayak was amazing!!!  3 vermillions, 18" greenling, 4 big blues, a nice olive and a china.  Oh yea!  a 25" ling.  Great day and amazing viz.

yeah, i agree with divndc... i too have gone back to big5 to get my card reissued.... i did what matt did and i think thats the fair thing to do; just get what you think you had on the card left or play it safe and get less... i sent the second card back in and had them photocopy the receipt from the first one to show that there was no monkey business going on.

I lost my ab card and license a few years ago , a lady in the store in fort bragg told me it was illlegle for her to sell me a new ab card, and advise me to go to the DFG and try to get a new one, hope some one can find some facts out about this situation,i think i saw some one say to photo copy  your card and license, i see a problem with dfg giveng a new one becuase you could just say you lost it to get a new card and fill it up with 24 abs too.

If I recall correctly all you need to do is go to DFG and fill out an afadavit of how many abs you have taken and they will give you a new card and remove the number of tags you said you used.  I think you could run into a problem just buying a new card.  That could be a violation having two cards issued to you. with all the budget problems they may not be tracking it all that well but you never know.
