If a species is closed to fishing, one must immediately return said catch to the water.It is technically illegal to take a picture, correct?So if I used a GoPro to video the event is this illegal as well?I know legal interpretations all the way.c63

I believe taking the pictures would be the problem because it would not be an imediate release. If go pro is running and you in hook and release would be legal. On a side note I don't know if even taking a few picture will get a person in trouble.

The regulations say that immediately release includes the time it take the identify the fish, measure, and photograph the fish.
