Has fish keeping did this to anyone else ?

Personally it has stopped me and my bf, to me it's like putting a fishing rod in my tank and catching them, I couldn't bring myself to do it, we have thrown all our rods everything that is to do with fishing, only fish I catch are mine when I'm upgrading tanks or have a poorly fish,

It's very interesting to see everyone's view on this subject. Also very refreshing to see people not bashing others on their views.

How would you feel with a hook going through your lip over and over when you thought you were getting food an then gettin your lip tugged up till you were caught and terrified at the same time

I bet the same people who did this research are the same ones that say fish have a 3 second memory

Agree (note I am a fisherman) it's a double edged sword I love fish and love the sport of catching fish. One fish I have caught was put into my fathers tank. It grew to be 5+lbs and we released the beautiful blue cat back to the wild. I agree fish have longer memories than that. Typically once a fish is hooked it won't bite again for 3 days.

Not sure about that time frame. I once caught a small grouper near a jetty that I watched someone catch about 3-4 hours before me. I knew it was the same fish because it had the same mis-marking and hole on the side of his mouth from the other guy's hook. He had used natural bait, I used an artificial lure. Can't say this is typical but it did happen which raises the point: Maybe they don;t have such long term memory after all. If the pain was too much to bare, why did it attack another food in just a few hours?

Just sayin'

^ maybe it's need for food out weighted the pain of being caught.

Scientific study's show that fish do not feel pain by electrically charging the water fish are in.

And yes I do go fishing and eat fish that are a reasonable size to keep.

Have always fished and always kept tanks. Have no issues with either. I mainly catch and release (bass 99% of the time) but have no problems keeping a mess of fish to eat. I kept them different ways, strung gills up on lotus stems as I waded the shallows, used floating fish baskets at times, bucket during winter, and then if in the boat live well.
