Releasing them, to me, would be having one less fly line per gator caught... Cut the line and endure the loss. Getting that close to one would have me attempting to clear my genitals from my throat for weeks... Just saying... However, I am curious about the oscars... Are you talking pellet-crunching oscars, like the ones that you would purchase at an exotic pet store?
