Re: Eat that fish, or release it?
There is nothing wrong with keeping a catch. Sometimes we get caught up in the elitism that only a true sportman releases. If a certain fishery is so fragile than maybe no fishing should be allowed there at all. Everytime a fish is hooked and fought, is not it's life at risk regardless of how careful we are? I am all for responsible conservation which means I'm guilty of no sin by ethically using a natural resource. I truly wish people would be more concerned with pollution than what's in another man's creel. Do what is right in the regs book and in your heart. Bon appetite.
