I am C&R only with my service, that goes for bass and panfish. Otherwise I'd be putting hundreds of people each year on your fish so they could carry them home. You should be glad that my business is C&R.
10 guys, 50 bream a day, possession of 100 each = 1,000 to take home per 10 guys legally. That's way plenty if you ask me, and it's all too often exceeded. With increasing pressure, our fisheries CANNOT and do not handle those numbers well, if you want a future that is. Do the math, and then tell me there is no impact...
And, the bream and crappie fishing is beginning to draw lots of of anglers, both in state and out of state.
I think it's great that folks fish and take some for food, I do it. But, gluttony is ridiculous and uncalled for IMO.
