    Why not start posting pictures if only fish are released? I think we all know there are fewer and fewer fish returning and promoting the 100% harvest of all large fish seems a little dated in these times.

      You’re right. It’s a constant discussion. We’re happy to post catch and release fish, we’ve just not yet found a clean way to have people supply them to us. Of course Surfland is a weigh station, and has been for 50 years, and people do catch and eat fish. So it’s a delicate balance. I know some guys who catch, photograph, and release big fish regularly, but they don’t want me to post them so they remain unknown. I’m happy to post your pictures of C&R and you can help start a trend.

    I like the idea of posting C&R pics… I think it’s safe to say most people are using digital cameras now a days. That being the case, most of them use a standard SD memory card. It wouldn’t take long to put their memory card into an SD to USB adapter and download the photo(s) to your computer. These adapters are pretty common, and can be found for under $20.

      That’s a good idea! Might be a little difficult for Kay to manage while bagging bait, but I’ll see if it’s something she’s interested in. In the meantime, folks can e-mail them to: stickman@surflandbt.com

    I think the idea of the $20 “read any card” USB connector is the way to go plus some signage in the store stating such. Maybe even an icon somewhere on the site mentioning option. I regularly catch and release many large fish as do many of my friends. Mostly on fly. Yes, I was in your fish film – kayak fishing then and count Jimmy as fishing friend.
    It was great to see some more “balance” in pictures the last couple of days with C & R and other events.
