A question about cooler limits

Recommended Posts

I see some tournaments have 4 fish cooler limits. If a team has their 4 fish, are they allowed to cull?

Depends on the tournament rules.......but with a 4 fish box absolutely you can cull as long as you stay within your NYS daily limit.

No you cannot cull if it means throwing your already boated and likely dead fish back. You should never do this, tournament or not. However, if you have 2 people aboard, you can keep 6 fish and just weigh in your biggest 4, if tournament rules allow.

Nothing says that when you cull you are throwing a dead fish back in the water to make a better box. That would be illegal......

Correct, which was why I was trying to clarify. If you land it, snap a picture, and throw it back that is fine if tournament rules allow it. Taking it out of your cooler (after any amount of time) and throwing it back is not ok.

    • Yet another question about sonar

      Way back when I was in the Navy I was stationed in SC. There I had a boat and fished my butt off. When I would troll at depths of about 150ft and 10 knots SOW I could still see my ball on my sonar. Today, I have a 17ft aluminum with lowrance hook2 splitshot.  I can not see my ball on the sonar down 50 feet trolling 2.5 mph SOG.  I checked my transducer alignment, sensitivity settings....what am I missing?

    • broadhead question

      Hi all, I began bowhunting about 10 years ago and practiced with field points and hunted with grim reapers. I killed and retrieved about 15 deer with grim reapers but I also had several hit the shoulder bone and not penetrate. So 2 years ago I decided to switch to Muzzys. I would be completely dialed in with my field points but with the Muzzys i couldn't make a "kill shot" on my targets. People on this forum said i needed my bow tuned. So i took it to Traditions and he said he tuned it perf

    • Dreamweaver deeper diver question

      I'm having a small issue with Dreamweaver deeper divers. It seems as though I've had two tangles on my last two trips out. I have never had this problem with luhr Jensen. And I have been fishing divers for years so I know to let them out slow. I can hear the weight shaking around inside both of my divers. I'm not sure if that is the problem on why things are twisting or if that is normal or not. Has anybody else had issues with the dream Weavers or is it normal for the weight to move around. I f
