So, I have read that you can't clean any fish you have caught on the boat that you used to catch the fish.


I've never heard of this odd one anywhere else.


Any idea what the reason is?  What if you're living on your boat, then what do you do?

Mexico Fishing Violations

* Fish caught under a sport fishing license may not be filleted aboard the vessel from which it was caught.


I find this super strange!

Complete regs are at http://www.sancarlosmexico.com/fishregs.html

Note the reg on multi-day trips.

I have long suspected that this reg is designed to protect jobs for Mexicans who wait at fish cleaning stations to clean fish for a fee.

I've been fishing fresh and salt water in Mexico for over 30 years and there is almost always someone around who will clean fish for a few pesos or filets.

No.....it is so the species can readily be identified to ensure compliance with regs.

Re: Cleaning fish on the Water;

Many places in the US require you leave parts of the skin on the filet so the type of fish can be identified by the Fish and Game.

This has been the law in the states for years and years too.

I confess I had not thought about the concept of leaving skin on the filet but that is because I have not fished in the USA in over 20 years.  :)

For many years, we fished the great cold and clear waters of northern Saskatchewan, Northerns (jack), Walleye, lake trout, grayling. Great shore lunch and brought some back to Wyoming frozen but with a 1 inch piece of skin left attached to each fillet for identification. I don't know if the Mexican law is an exact translation of the law or not? Some times we will clean (gut) the fish but leave it intact and not filleted. Is that legal?? Ron

Pangueros routinely gut their catch, especially on 2 day trips, and I have never heard of someone being cited for either, so I believe gutting is ok as this is also the practice on the big California sport fishers in Mexican waters.
But I just skimmed the 48 pages of the official 2004 regs in spanish and did not see a reference to the fillet/gutting regulation, so hard to be 100% sure, as is often the case in Mexico. Viva!

Thanks to Bullshipper and Craig as they have much more experience than the average fisherperson. If it's hot out even with ice, we may continue to clean our fish. We take an occasional yellowtail and more bottom fish for great eats on the table, nothing else except to share a bit with our Mexican friends and neighbors. And sorry but not all on the same day, LOL. Gotta leave a bit for the Guaymas nets. Ynot
