So say you are fishing inshore with a boat without a fishbox or with a small one. All you have is a small cooler to keep your catch in suspecting it will be redfish, seatrout, etc. Then you get lucky and hook into and then land a cobia, lets say around 40 inches. This is way too big to fit into your small cooler. So what do you do? let it go? go back immediately? Is it legal to cut it in half and throw it in your cooler so you can continue fishing? Want to be prepared if this happy predicament happens to me.
