While I'm not a fan of the wording, the implication is quite clear. They want you to take only two fish per day. The rest is written to deal with the loop holes that people use to circumvent the rules. Many fish regulations have minimum size limits. If people are allowed to fillet and cut up the fish, it's impossible to tell if they have taken under size fish. Not uncommon for unscrupulous people to go out and catch their limit in the morning, and if not checked do it again in the afternoon. While I wouldn't want a game warden checking my freezer, if they observed you twice in one day catching the limit, clearly the fish in the freezer are evidence. For some reason, fishing regulations seem to be one of the most flagrantly violated group of laws in our society. The rules don't apply to me.

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
