Zero bag limit accidental kill
I often fish water with a bag limit of zero - mandatory catch and release. Fortunately this has never happened to me, so, What do you do when the fish accidentally dies while your playing it or as you land it, etc.?
Seems to me it should go to some use. Do you return it to the river to decompose or be eaten by wildlife? Eat it yourself? Any ideas?
