boat capacity

Ok so I have a quick question on a boat's person capacity. I have a 24' center console that has one of those capacity plaques and it states 8 person maximum. If I were going offshore I wouldnt have more than 5 but I'm trying to head out to lake boca for a boat party soon and wanted to know if that plaque is the legal capacity of people or weight that I am allowed to have on board while underway or at anchor. I'll have more than enough lifejackets that isnt a problem, I just would prefer not getting a ticket.

Thanks in advance!
