Ask the DNR
« on: May 26, 2017, 12:58:59 PM »

Just watching and officer stated it is fisherman responsibility to be able to keep track of the fish they keep and put in a livewell (assume cooler also) when multiple fisher people are on the same boat. He said some people use different colored zip ties etc..anybody separate their fish for that purpose of identification?

Two years ago a fishing partner and myself boxed our tenth lake trout. I started to pull lines starting with a wire Dipsy. When I popped the diver a fish hit. I told my friend not to net this fish because we would have to let it go. After reeling in what I thought was a nice coho, I grabbed the long diver leader to hand line it to the side of the boat to flip the hook out. To my surprise it was a 20" herring. It hit a flasher fly rig that had tandem 6/0 octopus hooks. How that fish got that hook in it's mouth is beyond me. We were thinking that we had our limit,  it turns out we were 23 herring under our limit.

Not trying to change subject but, I never knew that possession limit was the amount you could have in freezer. I always thought I could stock freezer for later fish fry's. Guess I will have to rethink that one.  Steve

According to mi dnr handbook. One is allowed to posssess up to his/her daily possession limit and up to 2 days with of prior caught fish as long as the prior caught fish are processed in some manner (cleaned, smoked, canned, frozen etc). How often a CO will check your freezer is unknown. But stocking your freezer with mi caught fish is technically illegal. A law that rarely gets attention but a law none the less.

Hard to enforce for sure but I have heard of people posting game pics on social media and getting visited. I would also think as to what Andy mentioned with possesion being at capacity in the freezer to go and fish a tournament catch and keep and enter fish in a tournament would be not only illegal but a cheater?

What would be a stretch home enforcement? Or entering illegally possesed fish in a tournament not making the person a cheater? I realize it just a " what if discussion at this point. Just interesting to get honest opinions. Many discussions about many topics have the what if scenarios.

Well, unless the tournament had in its rules that you weren't allowed to have fish in your freezer at home you would not be considered a cheater because a cheater results in breaking tournament specific rules such as rod limits, fish limits etc..which are usually far less than dnr rules. Could you possibly get a ticket from the DNR? im sure but they could bust almost every fisherman up here in the fall.  My statement saying it was a stretch is because it ridiculous to even go there.

Then pursue it Kevin. Good lord

Furthermore, if you had ten freezers full it still wouldn't make you a cheater unless you brought a frozen fish to a tournament. Law breaker? Maybe. Cheater? Negative

At one time you were supposed to have a permit to have venison in your freezer a certain amount of time after deer season. Michigan did away with that permit some time ago. The reason for this was because it was contrary to the 4th amendment  of the US constitution, privacy in the home.

It has nothing to do with pursuit and it is discussions that i have had since seeing the original show and not just discussions on here but with others. I would have to guess everybody has had the what if discusdions at camp or on the boat from everything deer blinds to bait to you name it. Just kind of interesting to see what others think. Part of it came from a discussion with a CO  a few years back in regards to limits in various states and provinces verse coming back to a home state  with limits being very different. If i get a chance to fish a tournament i am not going to inventory my freezer  before i enter.

Now this will change the subject a little but my daughter and i hunt together in the same blind. She looks North i look West i was told i can only have 2 gallons of bait even though we each have a liscence. To me we should be allowed 4 gallons as long as were both there and the bait sites are separated by like 50-60 yards or more.ugh...

There's nothing wrong with having a limit in the freezer and then catching and keeping another daily limit.  Perfectly legal......
