    Thumbs down Ship Creek

    Went down to ship on Tues. Morning to fish the incoming. I got down to the creek at about 6:30. I was fishing just above where the culverts were. There were 4 other guys fishing when I got there. At about 7:00 two of the guys had left without any action. A little after 7 I hooked a fish that just bull dogged me. I ended up landing it but it was hooked in the gill plate. It was not bleeding (thankfully) and I let it go. I fished down there until 1:30 that afternoon only seeing 6-8 fish roll and no fish hooked for about 30 or so different fishermen. I was wondering if anyone knows if the fish that I let go was legal. I have heard that any fish hooked infront of the gills is legal, but then I have heard that only fish hooked IN the mouth are legal. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    It's got to be in the mouth. You did the right thing. Many don't.

    I was down there with you today, but fishing upstream of you. No action up there either.

    Thanks sketch. That was what I thought. I would be mad if I let one of the few kings in ship right now go.
