    What if the big fish were the last ones to hit? What if they want some fresh trout for the table?

    You do not know if these planted fish were bleeding, or couldn't be successfully released due to water temp? I hooked and landed a big brown last week, never took him out of the water held him in the moving water after quickly removing the hooks, and he still struggled for a moment in the warm 74* surface temp. Browns are much more tolerant to warmer temps than rainbows.

    Regardless, you should not be worrying yourself about what licensed anglers do with their legal catch.
