Trout for Sale - $4 each!

Recommended Posts

This guy has posted in a bunch of FB groups here locally that he's selling "cleaned and packaged" trout for $4 each.

Yes, the authorities have been alerted but supposedly he's defending his new biz online saying it's perfectly legal because he's "fishing from the bank and not from a boat".

He's in for a rude awakening...  I've been told that it's a felony for selling game fish.

He ain't poaching (that we know of) he just loves to fish and is so dang poor that he has to sell his fish to buy gas.  

In all reality.....how many do you think he'll find buyers for?    Leave the poor bastard alone and go fight some REAL crime. 🙄

I've held off saying this for years.  A lot of locals I meet in the Taney area all brag that they have so many trout in the freezer they could eat trout everyday for 2 months or some other similar comment.  The last time was at my time share office in July where the guy working there made that exact comment when he found out I like to trout fish.  Even my wife raised her eye brow at the comment.  There is procession limit right?  If this guy is selling how many does he have?

I think the possession limit pertains to a trip limit. For instance if you are camping or staying at Phil's place for a few days you can only have 2 day's limit per person.

Once you get home and put the fish into your freezer at your residence it no longer counts as "possession" limit.

I am amazed that MDC apparently allows the sale of sport fish of any kind.

You might want to double check on that.
