Fishing Guides - Making money on tax dollars?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have a question that kind of fits in here at this point in the convo... It is something that, to OTF's point, is common practice and I did it for years without thinking about it... Lets take the guide out of the equation for the time being and just discuss a trip where two buddies are out fishing. We will take the daily limit of 5 trout as an example: If I am out with a friend and we are fishing, just wanting to keep an overall limit of 10, if we have 9 in the live well, can we both continue to fish? Or does this speak to F&F's point about to whom each fish in the well belongs? Would you have to only have 8 in the livewell for both to continue to fish? Can you claim catch and release after you reach your limit and continue to fish? Technically, when you boat that 6th fish, you are in violation of the law at that point, right?

something makes me cringe about that stringer of smallmouth & goggle eye.

I know its legal, but darn the Elk gets enough pressure.

No wonder its hard to catch 18" smallmouth in that creek, since theyre going to the deep fryer.

Was starting to think it was just me.

Depends on the water you are on. Some specifically state when you reach your limit you are done ( no more fishing period ) and snagging the limit is even less.

Yeah, that's pretty accurate. In the state of Missouri, I know that in MOST places, you are allowed to keep fishing (catch and release, of course) after boating a limit. But on others (ie the trout parks), you are done when you hit a limit, no questions asked. Not sure of the rules there on the Ark. tailwaters.

all the talk of fish getting gut hooked, holding them wrong, dying a slow death, etc.

Now lets condone eating the bigger smallmouth.

Trolls gonna troll

Some people have a code of ethics they follow.

Some don't. It's all about numbers to them.
