agree completely. and my point is more hypothetical and not necessarily a wish. i think we can all agree that the current regs aren't working. who's to blame and how to fix it is where we keep throwing sht at the wall but doing nothing is like trying to wish cancer away. i think c&r would work, especially for trophy waters (and charters....not to being discussed here). it is a solution. it is more easily enforceable. rather than trying to figure out if some scumbag has three fish in his trunk, if he's going to high grade, or if the 12 fish he has actually belongs to the 12 people aged 2-90 that he's camped out with, c&r puts all the fish back. some will swim and some will float away due to mishandling, bad luck or a 10 minute photo op., but you would absolutely know if someone was poaching.
