Eastern Fisherman

Nice catch!

Small question though, isn't it against the regs to keep live fish on a stringer in BC?

Its pretty common to use stringers in many of the other provinces, and I've used them myself, but I was pretty sure they were illegal out here, though you could get two differnet interpretations form the regs, one that says it's okay so long as the fish are dead, and one that says you can't use stringers period.

From the regulations:
Have any live fish in your possession in the wild, or move any live fish or live aquatic invertebrates around the province or transplant them into any waters of B.C.

Do not keep angled fish alive in a “livewell” or other device, or on stringers, and never use live fish as bait or release your aquarium fish to the wild.

sounds like stringers are allowed to me but no live fish.
