Re: Keep or Release ??
Nice smallie, Frank!
I almost got a fiberglass mold of the best walley I ever caught, but instead I just took the measurements and some photos. I didn't have the camera with me, but I was close to home, so I put the walleye into a large bucket, drove straight home, took the pics, then drove back to the lake and released her. I'd probably do the same with a trout, but now I try to always carry my digital camera when hunting or fishing.
As for eating, I love this time of year to catch, keep, and freeze plenty of bluegills to keep me fed through the summer months. I live on a 44,000 acre lake, so I don't think I'll adversely affect the bluegill population!
