I wish they didn't bring it in. I'm not sure why people get off on killing a fish they won't eat. I'm all about fishing for food, or for sport. but if it is for sport they go back in the water.

I agree Vette...what a moron. As a fisherman myself there are many ways now to very world records without keeping the fish.

Most, if not all legitimate tournaments have gone to photo, measure, tag, then release. Amazingly they can get within a few pounds of the real weight.

What a shame!

PS...the fish are biting here in TEXAS!!! Gonna be a good weeknd for off shore...and a little classic 18 driving in the bay:yes:!

Happy 4th of July to all!:flag-navy (no US Flag!!!)

Was thinking the same thing....It kills me to look at that picture...what a shame.
