What do you do if the fish is EXACTLY 35"?? Keeper or not??
Another thread says that it either or not both. The way I read your post it means we can keep 2 fish ???

One fish per day 28" to 35" OR one over 41". In my book 35" means 35". If it's 35" exactly then I'll keep it . It always a good idea not to push the limit anyway. I will not keep an 18" fish in the summer-usually nothing under 18 1/4" becuase I don't wnat the hassle of a fish that shrunk on the way in. In the case of 35" exactly shrinkage is a good thing. (Probably the only time shrikage is a good thing)

Tip of the mouth to the tail. Do you squeeze the tail when measuring for length?

Measurements are going to be the talk of the boards this spring. I know the guidebooks offer information on how measurements are to be taken, but the tips about squezing the caudal fin are only part of the game. The other key in making accurate measurements is to make sure the mouth is closed. Lay the fish on one of those turned up rulers, push the mouth of the fish into the vertical part (0 inches), and squeeze the tail to get the longest measurement with the mouth CLOSED. If you don't do this, then your 35" fish might be 35 1/2 or 35 1/4 when The Man checks it!
