Re: Competing with other sportspeople for carp
The key here gentlemen is usage/consuming. If you kill it, use it in some form. Don't toss it on the banks thinking the raccoons or buzzards need to eat too. Yes, we have the "right" to do as we wish with our catchs...so to speak. But please, don't waste the resources given to us. Lest, one day they will be gone and we will be the ones to suffer the results. Have I walked up to the "fresh hooked caught bank trash"? Yes. I threw them back and may have even had a few choice words about "resource" wasters if that individual chose a rebutal as to why.
It's all in how you hold your lower lip...
