It clearly states that once it has been processed at home and placed on ice it can be transported. "transporting" includes by boat.
"...Things to keep in mind are: Once the fish are processed and placed in a freezer (not a cooler) at a residence (e.g., their permanent home, a mobile home or motel catering to anglers), they become a food product. From that point on there is no longer a limit on them. So for instance, if someone is fishing all winter and keeps processing their catch and adding fish to their freezer, then puts them on ice to transport someplace else, they can exceed the possession limit."
Truth is that people are people. and people aren't good. let a cop stop you for going 6MPH over the speed limit after he just got back in his cruiser from doing a traffic homicide as a result of speeding and see what you get. The same officer 5 minutes before that event would have been in a different frame of mind and might not have even stopped you.
Society has placed an enormous right with LEO's of all the branches... and most do not handle it well, most of the time. An LEO has alot of discretion..both to let you go or harass the crap out of you. And most of them get it wrong alot of the time. I hate even seeing a cop nowadays. There is no telling what the man is going to do... it all depends on if the "Hot Donuts" light was lit at the last Krispy kreme he went by, or his wife has filed for divorce, or he didn't get the police car he wanted...or....
