I never gave much thought to this until now and its really got me curious especially after reading regs on possession limits and freezing etc etc etc.
Say me and a couple buddies are out fishing. We usually try to travel light and only bring 1 cooler. We traveled separately they came down a day after us. We all take limits of fish, fillet it, put it in bags then stick it in the cooler. They take off and go home in their car. We leave a few hours later or the next day after breaking down camp etc. and we now have our limit plus their limit to travel home with in our 1 cooler.
This is a situation that does happen with my group of friends because some of work different shifts and just had out fishing when they get off with only a rod.
Does this become a problem if questioned by a trooper? Is there a way to legally handle this kind of situation? Worst case scenario we can start packing an extra cooler to avoid stuff like this but I like to not take unnecessary stuff with me.
