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.
