Fish are food, not friends?!

Anybody here go fishing? Freshwater, saltwater, fly fishing. Let me know!

It's a fact. Man feeds from the animal kingdom.
Ornamental fish are usually not eaten. Except Gouramis. In the home countries also feed fish. Des pig end of the sausage is beginning.

What is important is something else. Whether Turkey, Christmas goose or rabbit. The animals must be kept appropriate to the species that they thrive and feel good.
A good angler shall ensure that the water remains clean. He takes no to small hooks. When it bites a fish that has not within prescribed limits, then removed it carefully (with a Disgorger) without seriously hurting the hook and the fish can continue to grow.
It's all our nature. We must handle it carefully.

I fish occasionally up here in Michigan. It's for recreation more than for food. I release everything I catch.

I've been drooling over the idea of a native michigan tank for quite a while now though

It's hard to throw fish like this back

Oh yeah , I fish a lot!
99% of what I do is catch and release , I do occasionally keep a trout or maybe some good saltwater eating fish but only what I am sure will not go to waste. The kayak always has a rod and reel on board since you never know where you might run into a golden opertunity for some fun. Into ice fishing this time of year as well.
Also do my fair share of hunting as well to help fill the freezer.
For me they are both an excuse so to speak to keep me outdoors where it seems I belong and probably the happiest.

I love to go fishing.
If what I catch is of appropriate size, I take it home and eat it.
I love eating fish and seafood. I live near the Gulf Coast.
I have fish and shrimp in my freezer right now.

Note: please don't tell my pet fish !!

So do I, Tampa Florida to be exact

I like to fish the gulf a lot and have a lot of fun doing so. I fish more so for the sport than to eat but don't have any trouble taking home a good eating fish (Mackerel, Snapper, Snook). As long as they are appropriate size, I don't see a problem. Don't harm a habitat. You should be okay.

I fish here on the lake for bluegill, bass, carp and catch a lot of crayfish too. I love fishing in the lagoons in Charleston, SC and occasionally go for sharks off the beach. Everything is catch and release though, I couldn't kill a fish (or anything for that matter) unless I had nothing else to live on and was absolutely necessary.

I get what you're saying. You only use lures? You don't believe in live bait?

Yeah, I hate using worms or minnows. I just use dead things like squid and hot dogs work good too. Frozen works just as good as live IMO. Bass is just soft plastics and crank baits.

That's cool, whatever works for you. I do feel kind of bad cast netting up bait and sticking a hook into their nose. Sometimes the sardines will squeal. I get sad cause I think of my pet fish.
