do we keep fish?

Seeing that our main focus is on Smallmouth and Musky, we closely follow the practice of catch-and-release while on our floats. Not that we are against keeping fish, but one of our goals is to help improve and keep our fisheries going . It's hard to even imagine how many years it took that 50 inch Musky to grow and we are going to work toward taking care of them and the waterways we encounter.
