    Default Fileting ing fish before getting to the dock

    We are fishing in SE alaska this summer and only have so much room in the cooler. Can you filet fish before getting to the dock to save room in the coolers

    I don't clam to know all the regs. but if size is part of it limits look out, if there is no size on the fish you have to be able to count the number of fish
    like halibut 2 tops an 2 bottoms right an left , on other fish you have a right & left side but do not accept what I say do check
    the regs. you do have to ID number of fish an in some cases the size be safe an careful they do look ,count, & measure ,

    Check the Emergency Orders for SE Alaska. They'll list the specific species that must be brought to the dock intact. Generally, Chinook, Coho, Lingcod and rockfish cannot be filleted at sea by recreational anglers. The EO's may list other species as well.

    Not knowing exactly where you are fishing (what community) check the EO at the following link - http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/sf/EONR/i...n.NR&NRID=2068

    Here's an official short version which is a News Release and supersedes the "normal" Regs.
    April 20, 2015
    FILLETING AND DE-HEADING OF LINGCOD, KING AND COHO SALMON, AND NONPELAGIC ROCKFISH PROHIBITED IN SOUTHEAST ALASKA SPORT FISHERIES
    Marine boat anglers returning to ports where and when on-site ADF&G creel surveys are conducted will be prohibited from filleting, mutilating, and de-heading sport caught lingcod, nonpelagic rockfish, and king and coho salmon. Marine boat anglers returning to any port on the road system of the communities listed below, during the times designated, may not fillet, mutilate, or de-head these fish until the fish have been brought to shore and offloaded, unless the fish have been consumed or preserved on board:
