Yeah....the one a day rule will devastate the charters for sure. I've been reading a lot on concern with increased mortality resulting from warm water C&R stress.

That is true about the warm water C&R mortality. Its sad when you approach a fleet chunking bunker from down tide and see several dozen dead and dying bass floating on the surface. When the water is warm we are done as soon as we get our limit. I talk to lots of guys who tell you how they kept their limit and then caught 20 -30 that they released. Even with circle hooks in the warm water their will be C&R mortality.

to many meals of catfish are not healthy. they are bottom feeders / cleaners and tend to have higher concentrations of toxins in their flesh. BUT.....they are delicious

Yep....used to see that up around Swan/Love Point above Bay Bridge while chumming. Once we got our limit.....anchor pulled. Playing fish really stresses them out resulting in a high mortality percentage.
