Here in Arkansas we have a slot limit for largemouth bass. If the fish is between 13 and 16 inches long you have to throww it back. Now this presents a problem for spearfisherman.The game and fish comission say that if you shoot one that doesnt meet the slot then you must throw it back. I shoot bass in the head sos not to ruin the meat. An the agfc is saying throw back the dead fish so you dont get a ticket when they will write you a ticket for wasting edible game does this make any fn sense?
