Almost legal limit
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

In the 2013 Outdoor Traditions publication in the Brainerd Dispatch

there was an interesting excerpt from a conservation officer. It read

in part: “one couple boasted that it didn’t take them long before they

were almost at their limit.” Enforcement action was taken when it was

noticed they had two extra lines down.

If a person(s) only

harvests their almost legal limit of fish could someone explain in

scientific terms the biological impact of an almost legal fish harvest

with more than the allotted number of fish lines? Or is it a case of

revenue for a unit of government?
