Record king dies for photo-op

Posted: Wednesday, July 22, 2009

I read the article and saw the picture on the 90-pound king caught. Nice fish for a photo. It's very disturbing to see a nice king like that get let go. But to catch it, drag it to the shore, take a picture of it and then let it go knowing it will die. What a waste!

Don't our regulations state that if you intend to release a king salmon 20 inches or longer, you may not remove it from the water? A king salmon removed from the water must be retained and becomes a part of the bag limit of the person originally hooking it.

Makes me wonder how many of these he hooked and removed from the water just to let go to die?
