Catch and release fish mortality is inevitable, but please take the time to revive fish and keep them in the water as much as possible. I found this beast of a 36 plus inch buck on a local this last weekend that is not plagued with the warm tepid water of summer. I know how it was caught, but that is another rant, but keep this disaster in mind the next time you land a native. I am sick and tired of seeing this stuff on our rivers. Our runs are crap this year and these are the exact genetics that we f'ing need to maintain healthy runs of native fish. Dammit, what a waste. Sorry for the rant.
