Currents - June/July 2017
Hello to all...
As we look forward to many fishing trips this summer, let's resolve to preserve the fish we love:
1) Land them quickly, using tackle that is heavy enough to swiftly land your fish. Fighting a fish for too long can greatly diminish its chance for survival; 2) Keep them wet, and catch and release your fish quickly, without removing them from the water, if possible; 3) Handle your fish with care, with wet bare hands. Never use a towel, as it removes the fish’s protective slime coat. 4) Pack it out, and take all trash and all leader/monofilament. Discarding can cause harm or death to fish, turtles and birds. 5) Clean it up – Commit to a local waterway cleanup program this year. We will be having a West Bay Cleanup later this fall. Clean water for all...
