Re: Keep or Release????
Catch and release most of the time. Occasionally keep a couple for eating. Most of the time when I C&R I don't even touch the fish or bring it out of the water, unless it's bigger than average. I use a barbless hook so all I do is use my forceps to grab the hook shank and twist it out of the mouth. The hook comes right out and most of the time the fish just stays in the same spot until I "shoo" it away!
Many go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
