I have released 10 10-14lbs and killed one 30 incher. She got a treble thru the gill raker and bled out on me
That said. I would of kept that fish for three reasons.
1. He will never catch a bigger one ever!!! And there will never be any reason for him to kill another one over 23"
2. It is a state record and most likely at the end of it's life soon.
3. It is the third or fourth largest ever caught, I think?
