    Default Should guides keep their own limit? Yes or No?

    We all see the pictures of guides everyday putting pictures on social media with one guy and 30 fish or two people and 40 fish. Why would they keep their limit. Do you feel guides should keep their limit?

    I would believe if my job depended on a good fishery I would do anything I could to keep said fishery in very good condition
    The love for fishing is one of the best gifts you can pass along

    A lot like the old Wannabe... except with fewer bad words. And Karate chop action. But, yes, still purtier than you.

    If it’s within the law then I am fine with it. Why would we restrict guides from keeping a limit?

    He may be gifting them to the client. In 19 years of guiding my clients got all the fish I caught.

    Pretty sure that’s what SK does as well with his clients.

    Happy clients mean larger tips, more referrals and more repeat bookings.
    A smart businessman does everything he can legally do to exceed his client's expectations.

    No names told but a guide in Illinois got busted a few years back. He was catching more than his limit and counted his total in with his clients. 3 people 45 crappie, more than 15 were caught by him. I believe he lost his right to guide for a few years and maybe fined some as well. If a guide fishes every day I would think maybe not catch a limit if his clients are catching fish. That is what he is being paid for, not to fill their freezer. Just my opinion

    Guides are out there everyday they shouldn’t be keeping their limit. It isn’t helping the fishery.

    Next question should guides be required to have a guide permit?
