Federal Waters: If the fish is still legal length you would be okay to keep.

what about a fish cut in half to fit in the cooler? If it can be shown that both halves pieced together are of legal length is it ok?

This whole law makes no sense. What about when fishing from shore? Are you allowed to fillet a fish right away? I've seen people doing this and it's next to impossible to identify a fish by its fillet or see if its legal. Also, what about bleeding a fish? Is it legal to cut off a fishes tail or cut through its gills to bleed it? (for fish like jacks, mackerel, and bluefish)
