Saw this story in the ADN and was wondering what you all do with your fish carcasses, and what the "new rules" for getting rid of the carcasses might be?
I think this article is mostly about people dumping trash, which happens way too much on the south beach in my experience. But it also mentions fish carcasses. It seems to say that you can't dump the carcasses at the beach, but also at the end says the carcasses will be raked below the tide line "more often." So which is it, carcasses can be dumped at the beach, or you have to take them elsewhere?
My practice has always been to gut the fish at the beach and take the rest home. I usually save the guts in a cooler and take them down at low tide and release them so they don't get back up to open beach. But, there are always fish heads and carcasses strung out on the beach during dipping. I do wish people would wait for low tide and take them down then, but it doesn't seem to be the standard by any means.
Just wondering what everyone's take on the "right way" here would be?
Can't wait for dippin season. Always one of the most enjoyable times of year for my family.
