    Nice haul. I assume the red and green tags are to keep them identifiable? Is that something you made or is it a commercial product?

    Well done! I'll get the grease hot... :)

    A question - have any of you guys ever had a Conservation Agent give you grief over not having your fish or game identifiable? I've never had a state guy mention it but did have a USFS Ranger in the Mark Twain mention that my squirrels had to be identifiable from my dads. Dad and I had been squirrel hunting that morning and were now at a creek cleaning our squawks when the forest ranger rode his four wheeler through the woods to check us. I had dumped both our game bags out on the bank and we were team cleaning, meaning each of us had a specific job to perform on the squirrels. Sort of an assembly line thingy. After the ranger popped off with that I reached over and picked up a squirrel, squinted my eye at it and said, "Yep, this one is mine." I repeated until I had a limit counted out and piled separately. The ranger gave me the stink eye for a second and got on his four wheeler and left.

    Yes...years ago at Truman Lake some smart a** big old dude pulled the grill of his truck right up to my face while I was bending over putting the fish in a bucket getting ready to clean them. He got out of his truck and walked up and said "All those fish yours?"...I said "Nope, half are my brother-in-laws"...He said "Uuuuhuhh....How do you tell them apart?"...I said "His has gold pins and mine have silver pins."....He got back in his truck and left....

    Taken from the regs.....


    Fish you take and possess must be kept separate or distinctly identifiable from fish taken by another person. If you are away from your catch, the device holding the fish must be plainly labeled with your full name and address.

    We had a pair of scissors in the boat and one of us would clip off a fin of the fish. Never got checked but it was easy to tell ones persons fish from another. I like the 30 pin idea. Helps identify fish and how many very easily.
