Photo Guidelines

Fish must be handled properly. It is the responsibility of every angler to strive for 100-percent survival of released fish. 

An ethical angler:

  • Handles their catch quickly with wet hands only
  • Is careful not to poke fingers into eyes or gills
  • Fully supports the body weight of the fish by cradling it horizontally
  • Keeps large fish in the water to avoid injuring their mouth or internal organs
  • Always wears a life jacket while aboard a vessel
