Legal harvest vs Legal possession

Scenario... I picked up two guests/forum members (that's how we roll in the Big Bend) to join me fishing today. We all piled on my boat, fished for the day, I delivered them back to our pre designated meeting place. Although we did not manage a 3 man limit, how does the possession law decipher? Had we caught/harvested a 3 man limit, then I get checked after dropping my friends (that chose not to take any of the catch because they had other evening commitments) POSSESSION is 9/10's of the law right? I would be in violation if I had (in my possession) more than my own limit?
