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.

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.
Go with door number 2. ;)

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.
