I just don't understand why lakes like Ivie and Alan Henry restrict you to 2 fish under 18", but have no restrictions on fish over 18".
I mean it is a good thing for tournament fishing, but IMO it seems backwards. Seems to me it encourages people to keep larger fish. I'm surely not going to bring home only 2 fish to filet, and I won't bring home a fish over 18 either.
Not sure about Ivie, but I believe Alan Henry could certainly benefit by more smaller spots seeing the electric knife.
