  3. Your right I don't catch mine to throw in the freezer. I release them to become trophies or to let someone else have the opportunity of catching and releasing them.
     
  4. Thats great. You continue doing that. And some of us will continue keeping a few for the freezer.....
    Trust me,your precious unicorns will still be there.....

    #1) maybe you should try harder to actually catch the species that you're after .

    #2) when you do you catch a trophy size of another species… Maybe you should take your own advice and release it

    I see nothing wrong with taking home a few bass for the fryer. the odnr has set bag limits for a reason. always has to be that one guy that tries to save a fishery one bass at a time. personally i think smallies are delicious every bit as good as walleye.

  14. I would agree with you. My argument would be why keep fish that are close to trophy size when you already have a limit of Perch?

    freeze the perch for later eat the bass for a treat. what if he would have mounted them? then you could argue that it was taken from the system. mounting them wastes the meat. your really not going to change anyone's mind about eating bass. you should be complaing more about the fish birds eating your beloved bass they don't care what size or bag limits.
     
  16. I wouldn't have a trophy fish mounted .I would have a replica made. Your right I won't change the mind of meat fishermen so just catch keep and freeze all the fish you legally catch. If everyone does that we won't have to worry about catching trophy fish any more.

    he must not have followed the fall brawl..... nope no trophies there cause fish dont grow and reproduce. they aren't regulated....... I wonder if the pedestal comes with the bass or is it an option?

    so Mr Robert you don't keep any fish because they could be a trophy is what your saying? hey I guess more power to ya. some of us catch and release as well as catch and cook. you should try eating fish it's actually very tasty.
