    Default catch and release

    just wondering if anyone releases crappie like the bassmasters do bass? seems like there would be more crappie if we release them especially during the spawn.

    slowpole,

    I'm with you....I think during the spawn, it should be catch and release....But it doesn't bother me if someone keeps their catch....DemoMan

    I'll release some if I've got all I want to clean - nothing against folks
    who do, but I don't really like building 'em up in the freezer. I try to
    keep 'em et up as I catch them. :D
    But if I'm gonna release them, I do it right off the hook, don't think
    Crappie are as hardy as Bass about riding all over the lake in a livewell.

    We fish allot of different lakes, What ever the lakes length requirement is we increase our keeper length by a couple of inches, throw everything small back. Makes it a little more competitive and the fillets are bigger.

    Size limit on my lake is 8". I only keep 10" fish and only as much as I can eat. 10" fish will have at least 5X the meat as an 8".
