Our lakes and rivers are not infinite providers of fish. There are regulations for a reason. I want to enjoy it the rest of my life and would like my daughters to be able to do the same.
    I go fishing with the intent of catching enough fish to clean and eat or clean and freeze. Unfortunately, I only catch 2 crappie, so not enough to really amount to much. Both are still very much alive in the livewell or on the stringer.

    Not kosher to put them back?

    To my way of thinking, it's just as "kosher" to put those keepers back as it is to release any non-keepers you catch ... as long as they're in good health. I've done it plenty of times, when I don't catch enough to bother cleaning. But, if they're dead or distressed ... they go home to the fillet knife !!

    Can't say much about the use of a "stringer", though, since I haven't used one in forever .... BUT, I NEVER hooked a fish on a stringer by putting the hook through the gills !! I always hooked them through the bottom lip membrane.

    With regard to continuing to fish for stripers after a limit is reaches, and the culling rules, I think there is a major distinction here between how the fish are kept in the boat. Certainly, most stripers go into a cooler. I remember the guys that "tried" to keep the stripers alive in the tuna tubes. I'd say that is the only way you are going to legally be allowed to cull stripers. If the fish are on ice, it's a done deal. And from what I remember, those tubes failed miserably so please don't go out and buy or make a tube just so you can cull stripers.. LOL

    if you start fishing at 7pm does your "creel limit" reset to zero at 1201am that same night?
    year before last when the night bite for walleye was so good we just hated leaving when we caught our limit, which was usually pretty quick at that time. but we did leave, night after night. one evening when we were launching the local CO drove down to the ramp and chatted with us and i asked him the same question and he said it was the gray area from heck. he said he wouldnt have ay problem at all if we loaded the boat on the trailer , left and came back WITHOUT FISH after midnight .

    im satisfied with his answer but curious as to what the black and white rule is, not the gray one.
    I know in Alaska they have special guided trips for Halibut that start at night so you can get a limit for one day, the trip lasts until the morning and once it hits midnight its a new day and you can keep another limit.

    I stop fishing for stripers when I get my limit and will continue to fish for walleye. But I guess since it is dark the stripers can't tell it's a walleye bait.

    Also to add to what others stated, giving fish to other boats or to people on shore count toward your daily limit.
