Redfish bag limit

If my son and I go fishing and catch four redfish does it matter who reels them in if we keep them? Or, would be against the law even though there is 2 people in the boat.

    I'm no lawyer but possession limits are per person, not per boat. So technically you did break the law the way I have interpreted it but I could be wrong.

    Technically you are correct. Hopefully you would not run into an overly zealous FWC officer. :wink
    Next time, mums the word.

    Didn't you mean to say you WANTED to let him reel in the other 2 fish, but you wanted to check out the Regs 1st ?
    I thought that's what you meant...
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    He has to be actively fishing/ harvesting the fish.
