    I don't know we do need a agent to weigh in on this I think....I guess in all my fifty plus years of fishing I never actually looked to see if it is okay to turn back fish alive and unharmed from a livewell. The more I look and read I can't find anything other than if you don't throw it right back after landing it....you own it...good thing I eat all mine or throw them right back LOL. I wouldn't remember if I knew that at one time anyway more than likely.

    I don't know that it is a good idea to force a conservation agent to articulate the law when discussing a grey area. The way they have been handling the situation is to only go after people dumping dead fish and ignore responsible culling. Sometimes the law is written in a way that inadequately defines the nuances of responsible behaviour.

    I've never met a bad game warden yet but after hearing stories like the one the other day about one man had 8 fish and another man had 3 and was leaving so gave man with 8 his fish,still under limit but both got a ticket for $145 ea for not marking who's fish was who's,makes a man want to be careful how rules are interpreted.I never turn fish loose after a weigh-in but see alot of people who do,if it's illegal,a hard-nose could make it rough on fellow tournament anglers.I know bass fisherman can but nothing is said about crappie or catfish.

    That is a scary story. How do you mark fish and why would it matter if it is legal to give them away?

    Dear and Turkey I understand because you tag them. If they really want to enforce this then they should give us like a hundred tags for fish, something you could put through the gills and mouth with a barcode having the information they require.

    "Any wildlife given to another shall continue to be included in the daily limit of the taker for the day when taken."

    Does the person you give fish too need a valid fishing licence? My guess is the answer is yes.

    I was aware of all this I just didn't think they would enforce it unless you were doing something unsavory. I guess I will quit giving fish away. It is not like we don't understand the point is to stop people from catching and keeping multiple limits etc. In fact I have no problem with the law, I may have a problem with tournament fishing now that I know the rules are being overlooked for "special" people.

    The "immediate release" causes the fish to not to be included in your daily limit. If you haul them around in a livewell and then decide to release them, it's not illegal but those fish do have less of a chance to survive than if they had been released immediately.

    If you want to give them away, that's fine you, just need to give the person you are giving them to your name, address, permit number, species and the date when taken. Those fish count towards your daily limit not the person you give them to. They would count towards the recipient's possession limit.

    Great reply, Jake. Thanks. This is what I always figured. Seemed pretty clear to me.

    Course, I never catch enough to give away anyway!

    Thanks for the answer,all I ever could find was that you had to release immediately or otherwise it sounded like you had to keep them.As long as they are counted as your daily limit,it's ok to release them.Glad to clarify this.Thanks again.
