When we do catch fish:
Our policy is to clean one (or some) of the caught fish for your personal consumption. We'll clean and bag it for you right there at the boat when we get back from our trip. The amount of fish you'll take home varies on the size and quantity of fish caught but generally amounts to what you think you'll want to eat while you're here on vacation (generally from 5 to 20 lbs. of cleaned fish.)
The remainder of the fish will stay with the boat.
