So my father in law's neighbor took us out fishing on his boat Sunday November second. He is a very nice man. We launched out of Dana and fished a quarter mile off shore. We did good, lot of rock fish were caught and ocean white fish. I was having a slow start. Now I'm normally a catch and release angler, except for when I get invited on the boat, which is about 4 times a year. I finally get a nice bite and pull it in to the boat. It's a nice Sandy! Finally I get to contribute to the cooler!!! I'm stoked, and the nice man measures it and says it's good legal! I take a quick glance and see it's like 14.5, but I should have looked closely. I trust him as he is a responsible angler and follows the rules. Well we get rolled up on by fish and game and they check our cooler. Every thing is going good untill they got to the sand bass. Well, it's 13.5! I take responsibility since it was my catch and I get a citation... Now I can't stress this enough, I thought for sure he was legal! Moral of the story... Measure you're own darn fish! So... What do you guys think this will run me?
