Yes it is. My son and I made another trip to Stockton yesterday and I guess I had left my stringer that I kept our fish separated with at the house. We were putting the fish in the ice chest and I was trying to figure out how I was going to separate them. Wound up using the dip net and keeping all of Wills fish in it in the ice chest. Already had one bad situation involving a friend of mine with a Dade County Agent, didn't want to make it two.
