Default Re: Catch and Release or...

With all due respect, no one should have to "explain" the legal harvesting of fish. Biologically, it wouldn't matter if you harvested the big or small fish. The only limiting factor on fish growth is food. If you harvested a big fish then other smaller fish would get big. Also, there are no fisherman that could catch a limit of legal fish every trip. In fact there are few people that catch fish over 12 inches at all. Pardon my rambling.

My point is simply this: People are entitled do whatever is legal, and there is some folly in thinking that we know better than the biologists.
