I came across this video of so-called "liberalized" fishing. Even as someone who understands the benefits of being able to keep up to a limit of fish, I can't help but feel a bit appalled at the amount of waste laying around the lake.
Can anyone give me a better idea of what liberalized fishing is all about, and if it really helps a lake environment in the long run? I can't imagine that it would, but I'd like to learn more.
Maybe @Bobgriffith@mcgraffy or @dougjohnson know something they can share?
Hey there @fallingwater basically what that means is that in that area, the oxygen levels were really low in the lake and so chances are the fish were going to do. so they lifted the limit so that fisherman could get fish out and at least use em before they died. usually any lakes that go through that get restocked after they thaw out, but I'm not sure about this one. Still, all that waste other fisherman left behind is kind of ridiculous...even these guys tossing them out is startling
@mcgraffy I'm not even sure what to think about that....I guess its good that fisherman are able to make the most of these fish in some ways but I just hope that the right regulations are in place as far as just yanking them out and leaving them lay there
@fallingwater I think @mcgraffy pretty much hit everything. I don't really have a problem with no limit but people are still pretty disrespectful to what they leave behind; they'll probably clean up later I hope
