SO SAD!!
Aug 8th, 2006, 6:14pm
 
Personally I dont mind taking a hatchery fish, and if someone wants to eat a beautiful golden or brown or brokie, that is their choice.  
 
*BUT* it makes me so sad seeing all these pictures of people hold a fish in their hand.  Their full hand covering all the fish's scales.
 
DFG recently did a study, and whether you use a barbless or barbed hook does little to affect mortality.  It is almost zero.  Even if you play a fish to exhaustion and then revive it.  But when you touch it, touch its scales, the mortality rate SKYROCKETS!!  
 
So I am so  SAD.  All these catch and release people, holding their beutiful goldens, and brookie, and brown.    And they will die.  So so sad!
