Creel and size limits are always a hot topic of conversation among fishermen. It doesn’t matter if you are talking about limits imposed by state wildlife agencies, limits set by tournaments, or even self-imposed “catch & release” rules individual anglers set for themselves – opinions are widely varied and often controversial.
