    Traping fish to grab them when they are nesting and trying to raise young. I think not, it's not for me. In many states it is unlawful. When the young are hatched they don't have it in them to take care of themself, it takes a couple weeks for this sence to kick in. The male Flathead is there to protect them for this time peroid. If you take him the bluegills can wipe out the hatch in just a few minutes.

    Scott, I'm glad to here you catch and release. As I see it this could be another sport that people could have much fun at and I believe others would have fun watching it happen. The way you do it protects the offspring and keep our Great fish plentiful. Wat to go. It's just like hunting. We have saved many animals by allowing hunting. It is a shame that so many people don't understand.
