“Everyone behaves badly--given the chance.”

Jerk... (lighten up, just because I showed a pic doesn't mean I didn't have info prior to taking, just might not have been good info) Just started a conversation about a fish that is always a controversy! I am sure you are "holier than thou", and never took a fish that you shouldn't have! clarkefishing said:
Not Banded Rudderfish, not Almaco. I don't believe it's a Lesser. Almost looks like a really small Greater AJ. Point is, we don't know, and I believe in the Atlantic waters Greater AJs need to be at least 28" to the fork. Call me a jerk, but it's incredibly stupid to keep fish when you don't know the regulations or even not sure what the species is. No one here knows for sure the species, and a lot of actual FWC or marine officers can't tell the difference between an AJ and an Almaco. They can easily pull you over and write you a ticket for having an illegal fish. Not worth it.
I say......I say son.......new & improved my tail feathers.
Another jerk that doesn’t have the full back story. Thanks for showing your arrogance!!!
You guys need to read a little more carefully. No where does he say he, or anyone that as with him, caught the fish. Maybe it as a guy at the fish cleaning table. Or a neighbor. Or someone sent he pic to him. Y’all are the same folks that see a pc with 25 dolphin and row guys in it, and crucify the poster for being over the limit. Never thinking that most likely whoever took the pic was on the boat with the guys in the pic. This kind of crap is one of the reasons this Forum, and especially this section of it, is a hollow shell of what it was.
Thank you to those who understand
