well i would like to express my opinion on a topic. in a cpulpe of posts on the new site it was mentioned that "i just toss these fish on the bank" well i can't say im the picture perfect sportsmen but this i sure as heck find unacceptable behavior. for one its just the upmost rudest thing to the fella whom comes there to fish behind ya. would you like to sit next to rotting maggot filled flesh for hours and fish? i sure as heck wouldn't. now some of ya say well its only a carp. well carp are good fighters and deserve better IMHO. and some folks including me sometimes eat a few. and a 5-7# er makes a good meal. and a heck of a big stink when tossed on the bank. and filks it don't end there. i went to powerton lake this feb to get some early fishing in at the hot water. i seen drum from 2-6# laying on the bank and several fiddlers. yes catfish. now how would ya like seeing this. :cursing: and by doing this we only increase the # of species tossed. those channels could have grown up into 20#ers. what was this angler thinking??? :crying: maybe he was a bassfishermen. so to him it was like those of us whom toss carp and think its ok. well its not! the only species that should be disposed of (and not all over the bank) is a non native destructive fish like the bighead thata destroying the illinois and miss. if you want to practice unsportsmen like conduct fine. just don't tell us about it. to me it ain't no different than littering. when im done fishing i toss my shad into the water so the fish and turtles can have an easy meal. i :cursing: hate seeing them tossed at or on the ramps. its just plain being a slob. if this offended you then ya must partisapate in this activity and i hope i changed your mind the next time. keep the waters and the banks clean.
