    Sounds like you just described the human race. Still no excuse to just chuck them in the bushes. I think its cute that you keep trying to defend your position though. Keeps things interesting.

    Yes, I agree on the human race issue. Cute, come on Ira, you could have used a better word. Have to defend what I believe in. I understand that most fish species are noty native. I just would rather have one over the other one.

    You catch, you kill, you throw on the bank? Come on man. That is fish wasting and you should get your fishing priveledges revoked for a while to make you appreciate what you have an are wasting. Mother Nature did not make Trophy Lakes, she created ecosystems. Ecosystems that vary from season to season and year to year. Man made Trophy Lakes by altering the ecosystem for his own selfish pursuits.

    If you are gonna kill fish just because they are bycatch and not the species you are after, how about picking a better place where your target species is the only game in town? Otherwise, how about hanging it up?

    That is right Mumbles you are the fly fisherman of all flyfisherman. So why is it you fish then? To catch and release fish, isn't that wrong also then. For you own fun and enjoyment. Why even fish then. You could possibly be hurting or even killing the fish everytime you catch and release it so why even do it. According to animal activists that is crule also. You are funny, I guess you should not be allowed to fish atr any trophy lakes that are stocked with trout, that is the priveledge you get when there are no bass in there that might damage that specific lake. That is right, you know all about everything, I forgot. To kill bass, nothing wrong with it. The majority of the people that are fly guys don't like bass for the reason I said. Have you ever heard of a lake getting overfished by catching to many bass? No not at all.

    It is too bad that you feel it is constructive to waste a natural resource and to mock someone like Ed at the same time. If you feel the need to kill indiscriminately you should go work on an offshore catcher processor in the Pacific and see the Dollies, and Steelhead that get caught, killed, and tossed over the side. It would be good to know where you live so that we won't have to worry about the stink from dead, wasted bass.

    There is a lot more bass than salmon out there. And to mock Mumbles, it funny how someone can start to mock me but can't take it. There is a lot of good info, and for me to say I kill bass doesn't mean that I agree on killing Stealhead and other native Salmon species. If you want PM me and I can give you directions to my house. How is that.

    I can take it, it is cute. You are right. I am mistaken. No need to get in a fight about our disagreements in fishing. Have a great day.

    You must not be counting the 6 million pinks that return to the sound rivers alone. For some reason I don't believe there are more bass than salmon. Like this thread it really doesn't matter.

    Disagreements are ok, it's the people who blow them way of proportion. Seems that when ever some one gets all mad they start getting all excited.

    Caveman, have your cake and eat it too. Catch bass, kill it, eat it. The best fish & chips I ever had was made from bass and perch. No point in letting a good fish & chips rot on the bank!

    (If you feel the need to kill indiscriminately you should go work on an offshore catcher processor in the Pacific and see the Dollies, and Steelhead that get caught, killed, )quote ryfly

    Did you acually see this happen , in my 25 plus years as a commercial fisherman , I caught less than 15 steelhead in a gillnet in both puget sound and south east alaska in a ten year period,the rest of my time crabbing & trawling on the berring sea I never saw a steelhead or any trout caught,

    Where did someone blow something out of proportion? No really I'd like you to quote it so I can understand your concept of proportion. I think it will help us all understand you better. Right now I think our proportions have been about right as it concerns admitted illegal activity on your part. Again, please point out where we have blown it out of proportion.

    Thank you in advance my "cute" friend (yep, still think it works),

    This is a stupid thread now. If I ever find a bass in a trout only lake I too will gut it and toss it to the weeds.

    Waste is waste no matter how you look at it.
