You are right about the law, however all law enforcement officers are told to use their own discretion. This officer knew that the 5 fish that this man had in his boat would be released at the end of the day and he did issue Aaron Martens a citation. The sad problem on Wheeler lake is the fact that there is no size limit on the lake for the weekend angler. Many times this year I have seen a weekend angler taking 50 to 100 bass, sometimes none of which were over 12 inches long, home for supper. I have no problem with taking fish for the table but lets put a size limit on bass so we can see more big fish in the future.
