I have a question. As I understand it you are not allowed to "field dress" your halibut. So what if your stay out 2 days so you can have your 4 in possession? How do you keep it? Aren't the worms gonna get into the meat if you wait to fillet it? I have never gotten to go out free lance. WE always had to take a charter. They cleaned the fish on the way back in. So what's up with this rule. WE don't have a big hold or anything either and don't really wanna leave them over the side of the boat Just wondering.
