|"We need these laws to protect the fish from humans"... Be damned careful how you phrase your words Michael. The fishing Anti's will be using them against us sooner than you think.|
Fish are tougher than you give them credit for; but I do think the issue we are discussing about tarpon and "flossing" is very important. The practice needs to be stopped; but there is a huge difference between the flossing rig and a true bucktail or lead head jig and the way each is fished.
I agree with Steve, taking a quick photo of a bonefish (any fish) is not mis-handling them if they were rested and revived a bit first. Shoot it quick and get it back into the water.
