    Silly question; if you pull up 200# of fish...well, I can't eat that much and it's valuable stuff...is there a place, like a fisherman's market, that you can take your catch for sale? Thanks all!

    Not unless you have a commercial license or live/fish out of hawaii

    I don’t think you can legally sell sport caught fish as a commercial product off a non-commercial vessel, but could totally be wrong about this and would like to know if I am.

    I was assuming this was a CA question, not sure at all about other states laws.

    Never specified either of those things in the question, so that would be a lot of assuming.

    Yep, 2 assumptions:
    Says Orange County below his name, so I assumed CA
    Asks a question about sales of fish being legal: with the above assumption, I made my 2nd assumption which is that he doesn’t have a commercial license, or else he would already know the answer to his question. Is he is asking about his personal boat or sportboat it’s irrelevant since one is likely illegal and the other would require additional commercial documentation (see 2nd assumption).

    Yep, if your assumptions are correct you're spot on. I was simply answering his question as asked.

    No. But if you do, make sure you advertise "sport caught fish for sale" on Craigs List and brag about your sales on the internet someplace. As I recall, south bay firemen get an auto-waiver on this.

    selling sport caught fish in other states? I would ASSUME that that info can be found via google.

    PS: you get the tax deduction if you never get audited. ;)
    But I think Trumps' tax cut eliminated contributions as deductible?

    I know that you can through Fisherman's Procrssing in San Diego. As I have done it a couple of times when returning from Long Range trips. They count/weigh the donated fish and give you an itemized sheet for your tax write off.

    What kind of fish are you catching that you end up with 200lbs of filets?

    Just get yourself a combo sushi/taco cart and set it up on any street with other vendors, our last governor made sure to decriminalize this activity, if you get asked any questions by the authorities answer in broken English.

    Yes, CA. Thanks for the answer.
    Not sure but my buddy often comes home with 200# of YT, YFT, etc, from multi-day trips. He vacuums it all and starts giving it away. Hence the question.
    Perfect - thanks!

    NOW, you're thinkin!! Sushi from a cart...BIG future demand, I'm sure of it!

    All right, I cannot help myself. I have to say it.

    Please do not keep more fish than you and your family can easily consume in a reasonable period of time. Catch and release the rest, please.

    Feel free to flame away.

    3x Paul. If it has no commercial value it has no value as a deduction.

    Totally agree. I'm a hunter as well and responsibility to your take is important to me. Again, hence the question!

    I would likely do what my buddy does and vacuum away!

    Easy to do on a productive longe range trip. In 2013 My take home was 445lbs after being filleted. It was over a 1000 when I checked in at 5 star. I learned my lesson that year that there is nothing wrong with catch and release or donating fish and only keeping within reason. I now hope to keep my pre fillet weight to around 400 no more than 500lbs. If they offered exchange for quality jarred yellowfin I would stoked. Not a fan of canned however

    Just because you can't doesn't mean you can.
