Crappie fishing yesterday and was visited by the Game Wardens. They ask how many we had and we told them,then they ask each of us how many we had. We said 24 or I don't know,all our fish were in an ice chest.We were told each person was to have there fish separate so if there was a violation they knew who to ticket.Only thing I can find in the rules address fishing with a guide you can combine your catch.This would apply to all fish I suppose,Whites,hybrids,etc?No tickets were given.

When not fishing by yourself, you are required to keep your catches separate and this does apply to every kind of game fish with regulations.

Usually when the game wardens stop me I don't have any
fish so I never ran across this. grin

Good to know however, as I (we) never separate our catch.

Like this is going to make a difference --- "Hey Bill, be sure
and put that one in my "bag" as you are topped off".

Didn't know that. When we go crappie fishing they all go into one cooler. It would suck having 8-10 coolers on board for everybody's fish.

Just use your fingers and toes if you’re lucky.

Everyone I have ever been fishing with puts them in one live well or ice chest. Apparently that’s wrong.

Those were some bored out of their minds game wardens. That is if this story true, of course. wink

The easy solution is for each person on the boat to use a crappie counter, move a bead each time you drop one in the box...hard for the GW to refute it...

Said each person had to have their catch separate.They said if there was a violation they would know who to ticket.The bead counter would not work.

If you have to keep them seperate, how do guides get away with putting all the fish in one cooler?

See original post,if you are with a guide you can combine catch except for the guides.

The bag limit for a guided fishing party is equal to the total number of persons in the boat licensed to fish or otherwise exempt from holding a license minus each fishing guide and fishing guide deckhand multiplied by the bag limit for each species harvested.

All that is saying is the guide or deck hands cannot contribute to the catch.

There is no rule, regulation, or law that says the catch must be kept seperate. The warden suggested they be kept separate for his convenience. If the catch is over the limit, he will ask who caught the most.
