I was cleaning fish on Saturday and someone mentioned in the cleaning shack that all fish if there is a size limit have to be left whole to transport. Is this true, wasn't able to find anything in the rule book.

• Fish prepared

for transportation, shipment,

or storage are defined as follows:

Undressed fish must have heads, tails, fins, and skin intact. Entrails, gills,

and scales may be removed.

Dressed fish may have heads and scales or skin removed,

in addition to

gills and entrails.

Fillets are fish flesh, excluding cheeks, that have been removed


a fish. Scales or skin may be removed or intact. A fish may not be

reduced to more than two fillets.

• Fish must be packaged or transported in such a way that they can be readily

unwrapped, separated, identified, and counted.

• Muskellunge, sturgeon, catfish, salmon, splake, brook trout, brown trout, and

rainbow trout, which have statewide length limits, must be transported with

head and tail intact so the fish can be measured. Northern pike and walleye

may be dressed or filleted

That's from the DNR hand book
