Default Keeping tiny panfish opinions

Check out this link and views on the subject:

Should we be keeping every panfish even if they are 4 inches long for the benefit of growth of panfish and other species as well? What about at
Chatfield Ponds?
Chatfield Res.
Johnson Reservoir in Littleton?
Boyd?

Opinions?

My thoughts are they are panfish - they are called panfish for a reason. I've kept my share of small bluegill, crappie, perch, filleted them up and fried them in the pan. They are VERY tasty and they have never gone to waste.

I usually won't keep everything I catch when it comes to panfish, but if I'm on top of a school, I'll keep anything that is worth filleting (I've filleted fish as small as 6 or 7 inches without a problem).

I don't think DBM has started working yet.

I caught several tiny bluegills from DBM's spot. They are a beatch to scale but they are certainly good eats. Didn't fillet them, just fried them up once cleaned and scaled. Wish I could get into some bigger ones tho.
