Default Cleaning fish on the boat ?

I know you are suppose to leave a fish whole so it can be measured if FWC wants to check. But can you (snapper for instance) fillet them, put the fillets in ziplocks in the cooler and keep the WHOLE carcass to be measured ? Space is an issue on my boat and fillets would fit much easier in the cooler and then I could just throw the snapper carcasses in a trash bag till we made it back to the launch. Would this be ok ??????

I think it's measured by an unmutlated fish. Please check the FSS laws to be on the safe side.

Whole condition means whole condition. You may gut them if you so desire.

Whole And you should always gut fish as soon as caught. They will last longer and taste better. It only takes minutes after death for the digestive fluids to migrate into the meat.

Reed Unless it has Changed and I could be Wrong As long as you Have the fish Carcass so they can Measure it For a Legal Fish it was Okay, Having a Whole Fish Does Not Change the Length Maybe the Weight but not the Length!!

Redfish that is not correct. Fish must be landed in "whole condition".

I HAVE taken home a Grouper that was bitten clean through almost by half by a shark. OBVIOUSLY a keeper before he was bitten through.

I'd take my chance with a judge on that kind of fish. But I agree Whole means Whole.

I cannot imagine a FWC officer waiting around while you match filets to carcasses.

How many people can you fish on your boat? 2 fish per person, 6 people, is a big cooler, but if you fill it with ice before you go, you can exchange ice for fish pretty much 1 cubic foot for 1 cubic foot.
