Why More Fishing Enthusiasts Are Practicing Catch and Release Fishing

Dec 28, 2007
Since many people catch and keep their fish many anglers are starting to do catch and release fishing to save the fish and let them expand more and more. Most people will fish out a spot and there will be no more fish, if you just release a fish every few trips you are saving a fish or two every time you go out fishing. The catch and release is a good method of fishing and should be done by other anglers around so you can grow more fish to catch. The more fish there are the more bites you will get.

When you are fishing you want to try and hook the fish when you set the hook in their mouth so you don't hurt them badly like hooking them in their gills or gut will cause death and more and more death will lead to extinction. So when you are fishing wait for the fish to take the bait then set the hook and tries to set it in the mouth of the fish even though you will not be able to see through the water.

Fish are things that live in the water so when you hold them out of the water when releasing them you are just risking their lives since they can only breathe in water. You will want to avoid holding the fish out of the water for too long since they will need to breathe in the water. They also have a protective film on their bodies so when you catch them avoid touching the bodies of the fish as that is their defense mechanism. You will want to either grab them through the gills or in the mouth for a safe release.

When you are fishing the fish is fighting you so when it is fighting it is building up lactic acid which can be harmful to the fish days later. So when you are fighting a fish you will want to give them as less of a struggle as possible so they wont build up that nasty acid and so it will not harm them in the later days. You just need to remember when you are releasing a fish do not hold them out of the water for too long because that is how they breathe and you just want to gander at them for a second and not hold them out of the water too long. Every second that you hold them out of the water is another second that is close to them suffocating. So be careful when fishing and releasing your fish that you catch. You will also need to take care when releasing them just give them a few swishes in the water before you let them go let them get some breathes in before you drop them in the water as they still may be in shock that they are out of the water being hooked by something really sharp.
