Sounds good.

You need to go fish Atlantic stripuhs and blues with Kamo if he’ll take you.

Beats anything out of inland lakes.

Big difference between what you’re describing and keeping a mess of undersized fish.

It pains me but I throw back all undersize floaters. Fish cops around here would write you up for sure. Who needs that hassle? Not worth it to me.


Just another instance of what's legal isn't necessarily what's moral. I hated to unhook Canary's off the coast just to watch them turn into Seagull food, but who needed the grief from the possum sheriffs. At least now you can keep 'em. Mostly...


You guys know that’s a very common excuse when somebody wants to keep an undersized fish or ten.

Well, a guy here told me my granddad was an "entitled piece of schit' for daring to upsurp fishing rules in 1930 rural Clackamas County Oregon to put up some jars up for the winter... So, yah shoot those bastids.


Critical thinking not needed.

Oh, I agree, everyone else shouldnt keep one for that very reason, but it's just somehow different when I gill hook one, because i know i did it by accident. wink

Sure I get what you’re saying and cheaters are always going to cheat. But say I kill 5 sub legal fish in my quest for my 10 fish limit, wouldn’t it make more sense to eat them and count them against my limit than to toss them and kill 15 that day instead of just the 10 fish limit.

Most fish limits are arbitrarily set at what nanny state thinks you need to be able to keep and has nothing to do with biology. Toss the undersized fish back regardless of health and take your limit of legal fish.

Oh I know, game departments are usually so out of touch it’s impossible to figure out. I rarely keep a limit of anything, if I need a bunch of fish I’ll hit our private “lake” where there isn’t a limit, otherwise I just enjoy fishing.
But on the subject of arbitrary limits the limit on crappie in Oklahoma is 37 per day. Been that way forever but it’s always seemed like an odd number to me.

Here is a picture of a very nice legal hybrid that was caught two weeks ago.

Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

I dont think Buchanan has any wipers that big. Darn.

Looks like some stripers I've killed, and some found dead and floating with a white in its throat.

If there's a trip limit there shouldn't be a size limit. You can't believe how many red snapper are wasted in the Gulf of Mexico because of the sze limit. Big enough to bite, big enough to eat.
