I practice a lot of catch and release.
There are some fish that I will not eat but are fun to catch and then there are some that had population declines. I still enjoy catching a bucket of panfish for dinner,but I don't take more than I need.I do not need to catch my bag limit every time....leave some for the next person and next generation. We are all conservators of the resources we enjoy.
Just some peoples' cruelty to animals, just killing them for no reason
yeah, I eat what I hunt or catch
yeah, have you tried Alaskan Halibut?
Yeah, they are, I go to the lake by my house and catch a few very so often
Yeah, I have uploaded pictures of the Northern Lights
Getting out on the water and being away from the cares of the world. Catch and release is the least invasive ways to enjoy nature.
I'll be a little serious here; my older brother's life and his relationships were a little bit like a Hell's Angel life on acid driving a moped driving over people. Later in life, before he died at 56 living twice as long as he should have, "fishing and release" was his "thing." He loved to fish, his troubles and life's history faded away, he was at peace, he was not angry, he was sociable to his fellow fisherman, and the release part was his way of valuing life. It sounds weird but my brother was a different man when he fished.
wow I just said this to someone the other day , she was posing with a nice size fresh water bass and she says oh I don't eat fish . now I don't mind fishing and not catching anything but I'm doing it to eat that night . you never see people digging for worms just to let them go
exactly I'm hungry and fish is expensive in stores
It's like a cat chasing a string. It can be fun to act on instinct, even if it's unproductive.
not much point at all i'd say.maybe they just like getting out in the openb & away from it all for a few hours
Its your excuse for napping in a boat in the middle of a lake on a hot sunny day?
Not if your only pretending to fish, lol
To be the provider...
Well tell him you need it so go back and provide wshat you need...
Dunk him good too, he's obviously no use...
May be for business.
Just one of those things that you do because it is more a compulsion than anything else. Just like I wear clothes even if I am alone.
It is a chance to relax and be out in nature. It feels good to throw a line out in the water and wonder how long it is going to take to get a nibble and how big the fish will be.
It's exciting when you've caught one and you are reeling it in and don't know what is on the line. It's amazing something so homely looking and lacking in personality can make you go from 0 to 60 in a second.
It is like unwrapping a present on Christmas morning. Except, that you know what you are getting and it is not socks or underwear.
I think it is the same as making wooden legs without wearing them ...
i only fish for mermaids,and when a catch one im keeping her,and i dont care what anyone thinks
A fine question im assuming it has a simple answer though like."why would I eat something AFTER ive ****** it" not to suggest that all fishermen shag fish......just most of them
