Great rainbows wes. Just ignore people. Just leave your thoughts to yourself. Most people don't know better then just be rude. We need to get back on the water again I been super busy. Good job on the king last night someone has to catch em. By the way if people were smart enough. There's a difference in size between lakers and rainbows.

I have fished with Wes a lot and he does a good job handling his fish. I am fairly certain he has caught some of these fish in the pictures he posts more than once. He uses single hooks to allow for easy removal and less damage. I have yet to see a lake full of dead fish floating around after he has fished it. If you don't like the pics he posts don't click on the link. From my understanding we are all here on the forum for the enjoyment and promotion of the sport.

I don't think anyone has questioned Wes' fish handling techniques...but it seems he was a bit critical of how others do it.

Good looking bows Wes. Keep up the great work of promoting catch and release. Not sure why there are those out there that feel the need to destroy everything they catch. Those are some nice healthy bows you have and it's awesome to know they are swimming around to fight another day.

Maybe you shouldn't remove them from the water if you plan to release them Wes, it would be easier on them.

I am sure ADFG would appreciate your stocking of pike in the lakes. Destroying all the hard work they have done and wasting tax payer dollars that help pay for the operations of the hatchery.
