Boat passenger’s violation

Question: I have my own boat and take friends out lobster fishing with me. I always make sure each person has his or her license and report card. I also make sure people have their own bags and keep each lobster they catch separate as they catch them. My question is, if the game warden finds a short lobster in one of their bags, am I held responsible as the boat owner or would the owner of that bag be responsible? Also, do boat limits apply when fishing for lobster?

The Volcanoes wasted no time getting their groove back after losing to Liberty Christian on Jan. 31. Last week, Chester was right back into the swing of things with two more wins to add to its standings.

The Volcanoes easily handled Los Molinos on Feb. 4 with a 61-44 home win. Three days later, Chester traveled to Mercy for a 69-52 victory. The two wins upped Chester’s record to 18-4 overall and 7-2 in league.

Chester’s only two league losses were to Liberty Christian, a team in a higher division than the Volcanoes. Chester’s wins last week elevated the team to second in the Five Star League standings and third in the Northern Section Division VI.
