So, I was fishing for silvers on Fish Creek a couple of weeks ago and as I walked upstream I saw a guy who had a big, spawned out humpy on his line. I watched and waited until he landed the fish, expecting him to toss it back and try for a fresh silver.
Imagine my surprise when he clubbed the dang thing, gilled it and put it on his stringer...with about three others just like it. I mean this poor fish was so heavy into spawn mode it was leaking milt all over the bank as he carried it to his stringer.
I wanted to mention to him that it might not be the best eating, but he had already killed it (and three others), so I figured there's no point potentially embarrasing the dude.
Afterwards I felt like I should have said something...but what?
