After reading the "Boat Limits" post, it just solidified my beliefs about charter boats and others allowing certain people with the "hot" pole to catch the limit for the whole boat. At least in Washington this is illegal. We were ticketed for having one person catching all the fish and no one else catching anything. I can understand when your on a charter boat and you pay to catch your own fish and don't get to, but if your in a private boat what is the difference? The meat is all going home with the same peole anyway. From experience, this is looked down upon by the state. Totally Ridiculous! The fish are all being tagged and no limits are being broken so who cares. Let people catch their limit of fish and go home. Just goes to show that some laws the state passes are not always the best.Just my thoughts.
