This year we will be offering discounted catch and release trips in order to bring awareness to the importance of catch and release fishing. With the number of people participating in the sport of fishing growing rapidly each and every year, and the limits staying the same, we must take it upon ourselves to protect our fishery. Fishing is how I feed my family, so the protecting of my livelihood is a huge priority of mine.
The larger fish produce more baby fish, so for every large fish you kill, (larger fish are generally female), the more baby fish you are taking away from next years crop. And in the long run, taking away from breeding stock 5 or 10 years down the road. Literally killing one large female fish can ultimately kill millions of potential spawn.
So next time, before booking your inshore fishing experience, ask about our discount catch and release trips, and the importance of the practice to our fishery.
