Default Re: Eat that fish, or release it?

I release fish 99.9% of the time. The only time I keep them is if I happen to catch a striper that doesn't look like it would survive if I released it (poor hookset and of legal side). If I am on a trip/guide and give them the fish as part of the tip (places like mexico). I am a big supporter of catch and release but more importantly of how fish (specifically more sensitive fish like trout) should be handled. Grabbing a trout with a dry hand and taking pictures then dropping them into a fast moving current will likely kill them.
