    Legal for the record book, or for your question? I disagree with some of his answer. If that were true then there was never a legal catch on a charter boat where there is a first mate that rigs the bait, sets up the lines in the outriggers, sets the drag, sets the hook and hands the angler the rod after he or she sits in the fighting chair.

    Do you need 2 snook that bad? Are you starving to death? The rules say one fish per angler, if she is an angler than have at it if not then the simple answer is, No!
