Is It Legal 2

So if we are anchored up at Fort George for the weekend and catch something on Saturday that I want to clean and eat for dinner. Can I clean it on the boat and grill it up, or must I bring it back to the dock?
Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Could be slit and clean then grill whole with head and tail, or remove head and tail and grill, or could be fillet and grill.

    You can with Redfish, couldn't find any info that stated the same for other fish.

    ( Preparation of redfish for immediate consumption on board the vessel from which the fish were caught is not prohibited.)

    You can find it here https://www.flrules.org/gateway/ChapterHome.asp?Chapter=68B-22 under "Other Prohibitions; Applicability"

    Other fishes are here https://www.flrules.org/gateway/Division.asp?DivID=348

    I heard of some fishermen that had caught some fish and were either caught by a lock or a bridge...I'm not sure...but anyway they decided to clean their catch while they waited to get by....they had some fish that you were supposed to "land whole"....and they were cited for it...since the lawman couldn't determine how big the fish were....:grin

    Just don't allow the pirates to climb aboard, and you won't have a problem...:grin

    Your fine, keep the carcass in a bucket till you cook it, or until it's properly bagged and in your fridge.

    As I recall if you are in the process of cooking it this is ok. But bagging and in the fridge is approaching "not preparing" to eat but storage and not OK. However there have been cases where frozen fish from home is OK.

    Isn't that FUI? Floating Under the Influence is punishable by many people pointing and laughing...

    Sounds reasonable in theory, however you don't own rods much less rodholders. :grin
