Its simple evolution, not that I totally buy that but....
If we keep all the big ones, its gonna weed out those genes. and the small ones we release....if one bass takes 3 years(i have no clue) to get to 15". and another take 5 years, which one has reproduced more?
maybe they figure thou, that if you have a pretty big limit, like 15" smallie.
that every fish is going to have a chance to reproduce.
but I think walking eagle has a really really good point, which ive never even thought of. wow.... genius lol.

Nice find, scchase.
