Sorry, but catch-and-keep tournaments should be ended. Especially with billfish. Stocks are in peril, and if not right now, soon will be. We all need to be conservators of our fish, or our right to fish for them may soon be ended!
Then stop ordering fish at resturants one fish per boat will not deplete a species killed undersize bycatch does
SAS greed…Billfish should only be catch and release…boycott the event
This is an incredible sport. More people should try this type of fishing. I’m in favor of catch and release.
dying at the caption “NBA Hall-Of-Famer Michael Jordan (fourth from left) poses next to the 70-pound white marlin”, cause I really wasn’t sure which one MJ was in that sea of white. Hahah
(He was the tallest guy)
Btw I am a catch and release advocate and believe in fish farming.
Any of you SJW thinking that 1-keeper sport fishing is depleting the oceans are just emotional and uninformed. It’s like when we banned plastic straws because they pulled one out of a Turtles nose. Meanwhile, idiots keep drinking water out of plastic bottles. Oh and next time after you stop at McDonald’s or Wendy’s, look at the amount of garbage you generate.
