It's 15 per person. 2 people in the boat can have 30. He said they had went 3 times and limited. That makes 90 total. They are within limits.

30/2 = 15 x 3= 90 or 15 x 2 = 30 x 3= 90 or 30 x 3 = 90 or 30 + 30 + 30 = 90 I get 90 Crappie's also!

each angler can have in there possesion 60 filets...thats equal to 15 crappie per day...15 +15 = 30 and 2 filets per crappie =s 60 filets...if you have more than 60 filets in your freezer you can get a big ole ticket...and believe me guys the game wardens will come into your house and check..i know of a guy that had that done to him!!!!

Sounds like what your saying is if they kept all crappie on their boat all three days they would be against regs. Can't believe they wouldn't take their daily catch home each day and start new the next.

I saw possession limit discussed before on another form w/warden involved. It was explained then that it did not include freezer. The way it was stated then was that "in possession" was like if you were on a trip and fished 2 or more days then you better not have more than 2 limits. Not my thoughts or opinion but how I saw it explained.

The wardens better of had probable cause and a warrant before searching his freezer. They wouldn't have gotten in mine without one. That is an improper invasion of privacy and was probably illegal entry. What is in a man's freezer, as long as it isn't a dead body, is nobody's business if you ask me. I have never broken a game law in my life. But when I lived back home and walleye fished all winter, 2 days a week, and crappie fished 4 or 5 evenings a week in the spring, we had a freezer on the back deck just for walleye and crappie, and you better believe it always stayed as full as we could get it. Right now I have Lord knows how many spots and quite a few crappie in the freezer, and if I catch a limit of crappie or a bunch of walleye in the next week you better believe they are going to be joining their recently fileted friends. The posession limit as explained to me has always been just that, actual fish in your possession. What you have at home shouldn't count. And I would be in even more trouble because I always have or quarter each individual filet haha. If the freezer counts they better check my septic lines too. Had some good crappie fishing last week and between me, my dad, and the rest of the folks that were over here this weekend for the fish fry, I am sure they could probably sift out more than my "possession limit" from my sewage.



By the way flipperjig, that rant wasn't aimed at you. If you say the wardens got into his freezer I am sure they did. And I respect wardens, there aren't enough of them and they do what they can. But the only time I know of when a freezer raid has happened has been when they have caught an egregious poacher with multiple priors and they sift through everything they can to try and take away privileges permanently. At least, that has been my experience. It could be different here.

"Possession Limits: The total possession limit

is twice the daily creel limit. You may not have

more than the daily creel limit with you while

afield. It is unlawful to have, while afield, any fish

which has been altered so that its species and/or

total body length cannot be determined.

Pole or Rod Limit: There is no limit on the

number of poles, with some exceptions."



From the TWRA guide. The key word is afield.
