Default Re: Why kill them???

One of about 4 fish I took last summer from a local mountain reservoir that is loaded with stockers and other fish (supposedly musky too).

I am extremely choosy about what I will eat. Not too big or old, only from clean high altitude lakes or reservoirs without obvious mining intrusion nearby (which excludes nearly all lakes in Colorado). This one I tried to revive after a long fight, but it did not recover, so it fed 2 adults and a small dog (very fat 16" bow, maybe a 2lb fish?).

I love how a revived fish will sometimes hang out a few feet away after being released, kind of hung over. Giving that last glimpse before swimming back to safety.
