    Most tournaments set a fish limit per team or per boat.

    In the tournements I've fished, you could weigh 5 fish per team no matter if it was a 1 person team or a 3 person team, just 5 fish per team.

    I was hoping someone could answer a quick question on weighing in fish for the tournament. What methods for transporting the fish alive have worked for you in the past? I read the rules on the stringer and the hole/tear in lower jaw, but was still unsure how to do this. Do you tow the fish behind the boat? I usually release my fish, so it is important to me that the fish are in descent condiditon after weigh-in.

    Thanks

    Some will keep one fish per stringer, 5 stringers and then transport them in a big cooler or tank with a circulator. Thats what I plan on doing if I can find the right ones.

    Marc, you will string your fish while drifting or anchored and then put them in a tank for transport. I know a few guys that forgot the stringer and took off in a hurry, dragging the fish fast or pulling them into the prop can be fatal. Vern

    Billfish has it right. :wink:

    One fish per stringer, then transport them from location to location in a cooler with some water. If it is a lake with smaller fish you can keep them in an aerated live well or cooler. Cooler water temps make it much easier to keep fish alive.
