Something to think about for you guys advocating C&R. I was involved in a major study regarding catch and release with DFO using different methods in the Saltchuck. The fish were put in controlled pens for each batch of fish and different methods. The best survival was 90% - flasher/hootchie w/barbless hook (which means 10% died within 3 days) and the worst was 78% survival for fish caught on flies. SO... for ever 10 fish you release AT LEAST 1 OF THEM DIES. It sad but true. I don't know what the answer is but i personally don't do a lot of C&R anymore.
