    How mant of your catch and release all your fish, sometimes keep a few, or keep a lot of what you catch?

    Personally, I C&R almost every fish on my river unless it's a nice fat walleye or I found myself a nice Crappie hole.

    I probably release 95% of the fish I catch. Now if I'm deep sea fishing for Rockfish, flounder, etc...if it's big enough to keep, I keep it most of the time.

    I'd say 99% of the time I catch a fish, it's not worth keeping...

    yeah, release 100% of the time too.... I don't know if it's more because I don't really like the taste or I don't really trust the Jersey waters.

    When we go fishing, we go specifically for perch, walleye or salmon....and keep all that are large enough.

    I keep Trout, Perch, Walleye, and Crappie in FW because they're tasty. I release any other fish native to my area. Non-natives I destroy, with the exception of Rainbow and Brown Trout which like I said I eat. In SW I keep Fluke and Tautog.

    I never keep them. I just enjoy fishing.
    Being out on the boat is awesome. Catching fish is just a bonus.

    I usually only wade in saltwater and I keep all fish that are edible and of legal size and bag limit. Anything else I release as careful as possible. Just this week I brought home 3 nice macs and a trout. YUM! Also a porcupine puffer caught in my cast net that is now in my 125g.
