I would have taken a picture but there was too much background to crop out. This was a general rules lake and one guy was leaving with his limit of 5 fish, 18 inches and up.
Doesn't that mean that THREE of his fish were illegal and over the regulations. Are not the regulations ONLY TWO over 17??

Well, you did better than I did on March 31. Two lakes...one fish on one lake...and then a ton of fish on the other lake from 14 inches down.....I think we must have hit the plant date!!! It was hot and heavy right at the boat launch and then tapered off as we moved farther down the lake!!! So we moved back up to the launch!!!

Did fill the freezer with breakfast fish....with the cold water temperature hope they taste ok.

BTW the water temp was 50 degrees. Late spring.

I'll break the regs out tomorrow morning for a look-see. I thought the rules were 5 fish any size for a general regulation lake.
