Striper fishing and CPR
How well do the Striper Fishermen in Indiana (or all inland Striper fisheries for that matter) practice CPR (Catch, Photo & Release)?
Is this something that's becoming a mainstay in Indiana (inland waters) with this species?
I've been a sport fishermen for large predator fish for many, many years and know that in the hot, warm summer months, when the water temps are warm, that the survival rate of these larger predator fish is pretty low due to the way they fight themselves, nearly to death, due to both the lactic acid build-up in their muscles during the fight and then due to the low oxygen levels in the warm water. The bigger fish use up more oxygen than the smaller fish.
Are people adhereing to and practicing CPR on inland, Indiana waters with the Stripers? Or do most of them get thrown in a cooler to be filted for dinner?
Just curious to know what the fishermen are doing out there with these fish being none of them reproduce naturally and are here only due to and reliant on stocking efforts.
