I have been told that most stripers die even when immediately released during the summer months. Wonder what the number is for catch and immediate release mortality on bass?

I was told that immediate release on largemouth results in very low mortality even in the high water temperature months. The mortality issue seems to revolve around time in livewells and stress during the weigh-in.

I said what scn said a bunch of posts before. I was there for the research-

This was 12-15 years ago. All of this is very old news.

gil,
no offense, but if you will listen, bw,scn, and I gave you THE definitive answer.

Keep banging your head if you want-

Angling mortality is significant when water temps exceed 70f.

Higher still for some species.

See post #15 or 17 - whichever is mine. \:\)

Okay, you suck! How's that for a definitive answer? \:D I'm only kidding.

Going back and reading, I now remember, but I can't be responsible for remembering anything that happened yesterday. I've learned I can never get those brain cells back. \:D

gil,

I think it's time for the bobcat to get us back on track.

My God! That taxidermologist should sued then shot. That is just horrible. I sure hope the one you shot this year turns out better.

I just noticed something. Where did you shoot that cat? What state?

I shot him here on the Centerville lease in Hickman County. I should have paid the cat and stuffed the taxidermist. The WO cat should be ready any time now - I'll post pics.

Sorry to hijack.

I like seeing bobcats in the wild. My bobcat viewing doesn't affect your bobcat hunting negatively, but your bobcat harvest does negatively impact my bobcat viewing. Seeing a live bobcat in the wild is a much more rare and special experience than catching a 15" trout. \:\)

It's been a looooooooong time since I read anything on that, but I vaguely recall that it was comfortably under 10 percent, with most of the mortality from fish hooked deep, hooked in the eye, etc.

Stripers are different from bass for a couple reasons. First, they are a cooler water species. They don't handle it well when they are dragged into 80 degree surface water, especially from down deep. Second, stripers are more determined fighters - give them light enough tackle, and they will literally fight until they die.
