You're gonna get yourself a ticket with your posts, RiverRat. You say you caught a 16" this morning on the St. Louis River, gave it to your grandma, then went out and kept 2 more. That's illegal, you're one fish over your limit for today. Read the regs, you're not allowed to gift away fish then go out and keep more the same day.

You also need to keep your fish thawed if you're going to keep fish close to minimum size. That one looks aweful close to 15".

I'm sure it was an honest mistake, just a heads up.


I see what youre saying,should of said us and not i,about giving the 16" to my gma...was fishing with my cousin this morning and he drove..so they were never in my possession..never stated that i caught the keeper.so ya im legal..thanks though

I'd be concerned about keeping the fish you have legal, not trying to add a few ounces to your take. The St. Louis River has a 15" minimum, with one over 20". You also must keep your fish in measurable condition and that means thawed. One of your fish is pretty dang close to 15"...and is frozen. I don't doubt it was 15" when you caught it, but you might get yourself a ticket if you keep fish close to illegal size and let them freeze.

Just a heads up.


Im not concerned at all..they were both 15"ers..the whole keeping them thawed thing i can see what youre saying..that was partially why i was asking about the stringer..and yes i know the size regulations on the river,been fishing there for years..i just never really thought about the whole exchanging live fish question until today..

Ruger...i packed up shop because it seemed pointless to keep fishing..i fish the river for meat or a mounter...once i had two keeper eaters i saw no point to continue fishing,i would of been pissed if i kept fishing,and ended up getting the hog ive been searching for and wouldnt be able to keep her,already having two eyes on the ice..

Thanks for the replies...sounds like ill have to ask the dnr about the whole trading fish thing..those livewell bags look like they would work good,and wouldn't injure any fish!!!
