Default fillet at sea?

What's the law on having filets on the boat I've heard you can have so much if you have a grill on the boat?

Fish must remain whole while on the boat, if not mistaken. Now if you are fileting and grilling, carcus go overboard, filet straight on the grill??? Who knew???

Not sure exactly what but there is an allowance for eating freshly caught fish. Someone will chime in with the details.

Here is the actual wording from the Federal guidlines.

Head and Fins Attached Rule
All fish except for bait and oceanic migratory species taken from
federal waters must have heads and fins intact through landing. Up to 1˝
pounds of finfish per person is exempt from the head and fins intact rule for
personal consumption provided the vessel is equipped to cook such

finfish.

We're talking about carrying a ceviche bag on the boat with us next time out. I don't know if that covers "provided the vessel is equipped to cook such," but I'll risk it.

Ceviche is the way to go. Not saying we've done this......BUT, take the smallest "keeper" you catch and put it in the ceviche mix (which was made before you leave) and stick in the fridge. In about 3 hours, you'll have the best fish you've ever had.
