Re: Dropping a Fish
The fishing world has changed in my time. Way back we killed everything so our methods were not as noble as they are today what with so much catch and release practiced. For instance, we used to let a cow swallow a live eel and you never dropped a fish. The lines were very strong so breaking off never happened. Today you can't fish that way because most fish are returned. With a one fish limit most fish go back. Besides, if you are going to return it, dropping a fish is a good result. There are some commercial rod and reel licenses, but to get that license you have to go through a BCI check. You could, I suppose, sell bass at the back door of restaurants like they do on the Cape. But you could end up in deep sheet if caught.
