STATE PATROL SEARCHES FOR ILLEGAL FISH NETS The California Fish and Game Com- mission patrol boat "Albacore," Cap- tain H. B. Nidever, made several trips around Catalina Island last week, in search of net fishermen from the main- land, who have been reported illegally in fish and game district No. 20. No arrests were made, as the commercial fishermen, if there had been any there, had apparently been watching for the pbssible arrival of the patrol boat, and had gotten out of the district. Answering a call to Ventura before coming to Catalina. Captain Nidever had succeeded in capturing several op- erators who were using drag nets. A drag net is worth approximately $500, and Captain Nidever had four of the nets on board the patrol boat. When the state patrol boat entered Avalon harbor some Avalonites thot that it was a commercial fishing boat, because of the pile of nets on its deck. During the mackerel and barracuda fishing season, Captain Nidever stated, he often takes the patrol boat to the boundary lines of districts 20 and 20a without coming into Avalon harbor. C. E. Cronkhite and E. Snapper Ing- ham were in Avalon over the week- end, making arrangements for the an- nual American Legion pilgrimage to Catalina in June. It is expected that over two thousand Legionaires will make the trip. II
