According to the state, the possession limit is the same as the daily creel. Not twice the daily creel (as in some states). I was incorrect regarding the possession regulation.

I believe that means two things, 1. A person can only be in possession of 50 bream, or 50 per licensed angler in the freezer at any given time. That would also mean only 10 bass can be in total possession. In other words, if you have 50 bream or 10 bass already in the freezer, don't go filleting any more till you EAT some!

And 2., there are a lot of people over the actual daily creel/possession limit...:)

I recall when I fished in Canada, the possession limit included what was in your stomach that given day, meaning you could not eat two or three walleye from your daily limit, and then go back out and replace those you ate to refill the limit.
