Bass are not a native species here. I consider it a public service to catch and eat as many as I can. They wreak havoc on the native trout, steelhead, and salmon.

When it comes to salmonid species, I always release a native fish. Hatchery fish on the other hand..... Yum!

Depends if I'm hungry or not.

But typically, I don't fish without the end goal of a fish dinner somewhere down the line.

From my POV, in my purely personal humble opinion, fishing without planning on eating what you catch (assuming it's edible and legal to catch), is like chewing food without planning on swallowing it.
What's the point? I'd rather have a great piece of fish cooked to perfection than a perfect steak.

Is that anything like going to the bar or local dating scene with certain intentions? Catch and release? Yeah, I guess I can dig that...

My son caught this huge bass and small Musky yesterday. What is amazing is that the lake is in the middle of Madison, WI. He went to grade school right across the street from where he caught the bass.
