As part of my signature states, I do practice C & R...... on almost everything....

But if it's a Crappie, Walleye, or Bluegill..... he's in the hot oil!!

I could go for a good mess of Crappie fillets right now......mmmmmmm rolleyes.gif

Much like Arkieflyguy It depends on the fish. I realease most all of the dollies i catch same goes with any small bows or extremly large females. Salmon are a different story. I keep my limit of pink salmon early on when they are fresh chromers, the limit for pinks is 5 per person but i don't always keep that. The limit for reds and silvers is 2 and i will always keep a limit of reds and most always keep silvers. But considering i usually catch between 10 and 20 silver a day, plenty of fish make it back. I might seem greedy but groceries are so expensive here it's nice to eat fresh salmon that some of you in the lower 48 would have to pay a small fortune for.
I wish my first words when i was born were quote so right before I died I could say unqoute-stepen wright
