  22. lol! My father in law was fishing a jetty down from Al McReynolds the night he caught his record. He always claimed the fish was caught on bait that night, it was so windy and rough that plugging wasn't possible, maybe buck tailing was. but who knows...
  23. Wow 50%!
  24. Who am I kidding! I'd keep it. People forget that catch and release still kills on average 8% of fish caught. Plenty of studies have shown this. The lowest average is boat caught fish on heavy gear with circle hooks that are never taken out of the water, with water temps below 70 degrees. It goes down to about 2% killed under those circumstances. Beach and jetty caught fish the average is higher for the obvious reasons. I probably killed many fish in my younger years landing them off jetties. I've lost many in between the rocks that I couldn't get to. A striped bass marine biologist I interned with really influenced my thoughts on this. To him if you're worried about the bass population, let go everything under 40 pounds and keep your trophy fish, 45-50lbs and up. The small fish up to 8-10 pounds are the future of the stock. The 10-40 pound fish are the healthy male/female breeding population. The 45-50 pound and up are the seniors, not having an impact on the population due to their repro systems starting to shut down, increased infertile eggs, and slowly not going upriver anymore to breed. He said the big ones stop actually swimming upriver to the breeding grounds, maybe once every few years until they stop. That's why you will see huge fish in late May and June with eggs that everybody is crying about. The reason there is still eggs is because they didn't actually swim upriver to breed that year. So don't cry. Made sense to me what he was saying. So I have no problem with people keeping fish, especially big ones. I have a problem with C&R people who think they aren't killing fish. Fish heavy, keep them in the water, no pics, and know that you are still killing fish no matter what you tell yourself to feel better. The only true way to never kill a fish is to never fish. Love to all!
  25. Thank you for your interest Joe! Unfortunately I am not interested in a trade for 2 reasons. First I am unloading everything I've accumulated over the past 20 years that I don't use much. I don't fish a fraction of what I used too so I've really minimized my gear to what I have the most confidence in, bucktails, rubber, darters, sp minnow/bomber in just a few colors. Second, my kids crazy dental bills this year is what prompted me to do this. I'm retired military and now run a business but money is tight during my start up phase. I'm paying the bills but the extra money isn't there yet. My kids needed a lot of dental work that wasn't covered under our insurance and the plugs are paying for it. But thank you and good luck in everything you do Joe! Chris
