 The "main stem" of the Susky (Sunbury south I think) is closed to bass during what is the C+R season in the rest of the state. If you catch one by accident you must release immediately(not even supposed to remove them from the water).

 The guy last year posted his picture on F/B - after he got his ticket in the mail - he cried to the local newspaper, which then blew up here on the net. By this time he had removed his post from F/B. I don't know what his posts were, the only picture I saw was him holding the fish used in the newspaper story. If that was the only thing he had posted then he broke the law = ticket.  He fought the ticket by claiming he released the fish, the judge bought it and he got off.

 I'm 99% sure that if a PFBC officer would have seen him catch + release the fish there would have been no ticket, maybe a lecture but no ticket. Posting a picture holding a fish - we have no idea if he released it or not for all we know he ate it.
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

Fining somebody for a picture posted on facecrap sounds fishy to me. How the heck can they be sure where and when he caught it without actually seeing him in the act? But hey, it's the law....  ::)

As of last year, they changed the regulation....that if you catch a fish out of season, you can take pic, as quick as you can, and return it unharmed to the water. It does make some people upset though when you take a pic of out of season fish and post the pic. To each their own, I guess! Sorry to aid in the hijacking of this thread.

That's an awesome eye , far as pics , IMO more fish are harmed more by miss handling , and to think a picture represents a kept fish is just goofy ,

We would all be behind bars if they went by pictures and what could have happened...nice fish either way...doesn't look like 37" to me even with his arms extended to the camera,so I'd charge him with tampering with evidence as well  ;D

That's the one I heard about.  If I just seen the pic and not heard the details I would of guessed between 28 an 30 inches and around 10 pounds.    Wish there was something to compare it to for size comparison.

We did a little test. Tried to recreate how the fish is held. Both hands are outside his shoulders, guesstimate 27" There is still a lot of fish outside his hands. Again,estimate 3" at the mouth, 4-5" at the tail. The fish isn't straight either. We figured 35". Since I wasn't there and everything was done off the pic nothing was done scientific but it seems pretty close to me.
