CATCH AND RELEASEAs a tournament fishermen I am very concerned about keeping my fish alive.   Not only because there are penalties for dead fishbut we have to make sure that we do not harm the population for the future.  There are a couple of ways to help ensure that your fish will be release alive no matter what species you are trying to catch.  The easiest and cheapest way to help you keep your fish alive is go make sure that your live wells aeratoris working correctly.  Next you should always take some ice with you in the summer months because the sun will heat the water in your live well.  Adding 1 cup of ice per hour will help prevent the water from becoming to hot.  The last precaution that I take is that I add the correct amount of CATCH AND RELEASE to the water.  It is an additive that helps relax the fish, prevents loss of slim coat, and adds oxygen to the water.  Please help us keep our fish alive for everyone to catch another day.
