Re: odd question
this is a great topic, i always enjoy a nice friendly debate. i love to eat fish, it is by far my favorite food! but...i only keep what i eat. i do not keep bass because i dont enjoy eating them. also, smallmouth arent as abundant in the areas around me as they used to be. i am an avid flyfisherman, releasing what i wont eat. but i am also an udergraduate student going into limnology/aquatic science and fisheries management. i believe in catch and release, but there is nothing wrong with keping a few fish IF the body of water you are fishing on has a solid population of fish in it. and the people that sponsor catch and release are most likely members of the department of natural resources or other organizations.
