Ok this deals with Michigan.
The law states that you allowed 5 walleye per day. Ok let's say I go fishing on Monday. I catch my 5 walleye, I go with my 5 walleye and clean them, filet them, package them, then place in the freezer. Tuesday I go fishing and I catch my 5 walleye again. I do the same as I did on Monday. Wednesday I go fishing I catch 2 walleye and head home.
So am I over my posession.
This is discussed and debated on numerous sportsman boards every year. Why because people are scared of getting busted for being over there limit. They aregue that even after the fish is processed and frozen. It is still a walleye and counted as part of your limit.
