Do you think people should eat the fish they catch, or just let them go?

Ok this is just me. We used to eat a LOT of bullhead and catfish we caught. Then we started catching deformed fish and that was the end of that fish eating for me.
We have a limit as to what you can legally take home. We are totally catch and release fisherpeople in this house.
Damon is a fisherman. We have eaten striped bass, bluefish, tuna, mahi mahi all caught by him. I probably have mercury poisoning. I’ve saved lots of money, though, from eating fish he has caught.
Fortunately he hasn’t caught any deformed fish. I’d probably quit eating it if he brought home one eyed fish.
how bout a 3 eyed fish? That was the end of eating fish caught out of our river…not even kidding. It was like on the top of his head. I should have taken it to show somebody but it freaked me the hell out and I threw it back in the water.
I’d quit fish completely if I saw a three eyed one.
I love fish.Growing up as a child,when we camped out at Moose lake,all we ate was the fish my dad caught and beans.I havent fished in over 20 years.I would love to fish and eat fish right away.MMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!! I have had a craving for so long.My son and his wife fish alot at her parents place north of wpg.There is a limit you are allowed.Maybe i will go sometime this summer for a fish fry.:)
As long as they are legally long enough why not? My dad use to go fishing and my mom would cook it up- good stuff! I love LOVE love LOVE to go fishing…. I need to take my kids, it’s so much fun!
Definitely eat, within reason. I’ve found that those big trophy fish that everybody lusts after don’t taste very good. We tend to stay within the “medium” range for the fish we go after – freshwater, largemouth bass and northern, mostly. Some walleye, though I don’t like it (much to the shock of the rest of my family) and perch, which is just incredible deep fried with a little butter.
great. now I’m all hungry, it’s only 7:45, and there isn’t a lake in sight.
I think it depends upon the quantity caught. When I was a kid and my grandpa took me fishing, he would always stop us from casting out again when we had enough to eat for dinner. He’s all about hunting/fishing for sport, but somehow he instilled in me a desire to only hunt/fish for sustenance.
I just love fish. Unfortunately, nobody around here catches many of them. I guess I feel if the fish are going to be eaten, it’s fine to keep them. If they are going to be wasted, throw them back. Laura is right, the trophy fish aren’t very good. I also like the smaller fish like crappies and perch, they are delicious. I do love walleye though.
My boys used to love to fish for bass but they don’t taste very good so it was a matter of one-up-man-ship between the two of them and they would take the pictures and throw them back. They are very fun to catch. But they go back in the lake.
I’ve never run across a deformed fish and I wouldn’t eat one if I did and wouldn’t eat any out of the lake they came from. Eeeewwww…
This is too funny, I just got back in from fishing today! Sadly, we didn’t have any keepers today, they were all under the size limit.
We keep what we catch if they are within the limits. I love fresh fish!
I eat a lot of fish. I just buy it now. When the kids were little and we went camping, the fish we caught…we threw back in.
Haven’t fished in at least 30 years. Ah, those were the days. We usually didn’t keep many fish (threw most back) but sometimes we did fry them up and eat them.
Eat them, why else are you fishing?!! I wouldn’t eat a deformed fish either or anything that came out of that lake. Nor would I swim in it.
