I am lucky to need a bucket to bring my catch home.. In fact im lucky to even have anytihng in the bucket going home..lol

 

Most of my fishing is catch and release anyway. :) Well mostly my fishing comprises of me trying to catch something other than weed/rocks/reef. Anything other than those three, its a bonus fishing day for me.. :)

What are your views on the killing of the catch for to get it on the record books.?? Do you think there should be a way to measure, weigh, and record this catch without killing it for the record purposes.??
