    I would likely say yes! Say what you want about F&G/troopers...But I wouldn't give them any chance to give me a ticket. They are usually in full force there at times and dressed in street clothes.

    I think the plain view is a gray area or subjective -- from the AF&G site it states "The salmon must be recorded on the permit before it is concealed from plain view, such as put in a cooler, or before the salmon is transported from the fishing site, such as your vehicle." http://www.sf.adfg.state.ak.us/regio...luse/index.cfm

    I can certainly see why it is needed to record before removing the fish from plain view -- it lowers the potential for abuse. The "or" (meaning either or -- or if can only do one or which ever is first -- concealed or leave area) presents a subjective area because before leaving the water is considered 50 feet from the water. I suppose one might need to be careful working an out going tide.

    The problem here for me is that I dippnet by myself and do not want to leave the fish on the bank stacked and direct sunlight exposed. Instead the ritual is to place them in a bag (fin clipped and bleed), then depending temperature and the size of the catch (anywhere from a couple to a dozen), gut them and put them on ice/cooler. This saves time (more time dippnetting) because I do not have to run back and forth to the cooler, clip fins, bleed, and place an individual slash mark in the tiny box. This may result in the card being destroyed with water, blood, etc. Having a recorder would be nice, I suppose.
