Crew fishing limits
Question: A Southern California fishing website posted about an angler catching three white sea bass, and there’s a photograph clearly showing the angler in possession of three white sea bass. The story goes on to say the angler gave two away to other fishermen. Since the limit on this particular species is one, I am wondering if the angler is in violation. The captain of the boat said the anglers catch was legal because, he said, after limits have been reached by the passengers, it is permissible for them to keep fishing and catch the crew’s limit of fish. Is this true?
