I wouldn't eat a fish that big or old....Being he was caught in a impoundment at San Luis canal ., she couldn't spawn anyway..But can you imagine the toxins in that fish? If i fish that lake , I'll probably see the guy across the lake glowing on the shore line..Jim

I'm with you there. For me though, 1) I don't want to leave the beach or the Canal to tend to the needful, to prevent spoilage etc, 2) while I DO like to eat some fish some of the time, 45 pounds of filet is a LOT of filet, and contrary to most, I do not like the taste of fish that has been frozen 3) I'm in northern Michigan in retirement, and 1,000 miles with all that frozen filet in tow is not an appetizing (sp) prospect and 4) your quoted section above is also an important consideration for me.
I try to hit the Cape annually for two weeks every October; mainly to relive my youth when I religously fished those waters in the 1950s-1960s before Vietnam interfered, and a career imposed their own imperatives. Now that I am in my 68th year, other things than bragging rights are more important to me.

If y'all happen to see a white 4-Runner on the beach this October bearing Michigan tags, and see and old guy with a white moustache and an equally old Gordon Setter in tow, stop and say hello.

Regards,
DavidN.

Those are all very nice fish, and maybe sometime during my lifetime Ill catch one to, I hope I will never know unless I try, and of corse be lucky enouth. I would not kill a fish that size or any size for that fact, I catch and release all my fish, I dont need bragging rights. I would take a picture of the bass on the spot as souvenir for myself, as I always have a camera with me at all times wile I am fishing, and release the fish as soon as possible. A fish that size as been around for a very long time, so what right do I have to play God and kill the bass, just to show everyone that I caught a big fish. I can show everyone that I caught a big fish with a picture and not kill the fish, and if I want a wall mount I can just get a replica and mount it on the wall. If I want to have the fish weighed I can do that myself to as I always carry a scale with me then release the fish.
We dont live in the 1920's its almost 2009.

Yung which fish?

The first batch of 70's were caught using live eels. The California fish was a pile worm. The spear record was obviously speared.
I dont remember what the Va fish was caught on. Live Menhaden?
