Default Re: Catch and release or catch and eat?

That is a big debate among fishermen here is Colorado. For us, fish is a limited resource. I am personally for the most part catch and release. I may keep 1 out of every 125 trout I catch on average for eatting purposes. I don't care for them that much. When I lived in Louisiana, I would keep Red Fish, Flounder, and Speckel Trout within limits and eat them. Some people here just don't get the fact that if they keep everything they catch, there will be no more fish.
