Good riddance. Now go back and keep another limit tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, and the next, and the next, and.......

And bring all your friends to keep their limit also.

Big fish and nice catch. They sure do fight!...but they also eat largemouth and smallmouth. So long as its fits in there mouth, they will eat it.

Nope. The guy looks hungry and could probably use the meat to feed his family. Sort of like you flock shooting turkeys in the fall to feed yours.
that's not why you told him to keep em all. You just don't like other fish that eat the almighty trout. Which is fine if you don't like them, but a lot of people prefer catching stripers over trout which I am one of them. If he wants to feed his family with the fish that is awesome and I actually plan to keep the next eating sized rockfish I catch because I hear it tastes good. But I don't want them all gone because of some speckled fish that are stocked by the tens of thousands.

I don't trout fish and like the fight of a rockfish. With that being said. I love to fish for smallmouth. It stinks to dress a 30lb rockfish to find a smallie in its belly. I have had
them knock 2lb smallies off my hook. Even chase them up in inches of water by my feet while wading to eat them. Just saying. They do fight hard and are fun to catch but they eat most anything that will fit in there mouth!

Rockfish eat whatever they want. They're like the Great White Shark of Tennessee rivers. Since you guys seem to want them all killed off, and I realllllyyy want to land one in my kayak, maybe we can work out a deal huh?

Help me out with some location info and I promise if and when I land one, it hits the hot coconut oil really soon after.

I absolutely love catching stripers and think they're probably the best freshwater game fish we have in this state. However, they have no place in a trout river which is managed to be a quality fishery with slot limits and special regs, it completely defeats the purpose.

I would never kill one in the reservoirs or below the warm water dams, but will gladly kill every one I can get my hands on in the Clinch below Norris. I have killed an absolute truck load of them this year and will continue to kill all I legally can until I don't see another one in that river.

They have a niche and places where they should be and they have places where they should be eradicated
