Can someone please explain to me how the bonus fish works? Do you have to catch one 24-28 and one over 34 before you can keep one that's over 28?
They should have just said one 24-28 and one over 28.

Eddy- interesting question. Before it didn't matter too much which was used first b/c the sizes matched.

Now- if you catch a 28" fish first- can you use your bonus tag for it? Of course, these regs aren't even passed yet- but it will make for some great interpretation.

Also- imagine 6 guys on a boat and they have several of their legal keepers and a 28" bonus. Who is to say when it was caught and in what order. Gotta love it!

It will also be interesting to see if everyone who was against the tag program- now runs out and gets them so they can keep that populat 28-34".

Anyway- I'm sure the tag useage will increase and maybe we'll actually hit our allowable limit there.

The bonus can be caught at any time but, as I understand it, be sure to fill out the tag as soon as it is boated.

Like before, the bonus tag will make no different in the order of the fish......I hope.
