I know the guy is trying to make a point but letting most of those beautiful fish die is just a crime, they could of made the vid and pitching them over while culling the pile. I hate the no more fishing service as much as the next guy but that is just wrong. My opinion.

Fisheries kills more than that just for science.

We all get his point. And all of us with experience know the truth, but I question making and posting this video. Not much good can come out of it, and it just gives the PETA idiots free ammo. There is major uproar on multiple recreational websites-90% of it against the fisherman. It doesnt' matter that its not his fault. We all know that after a long tow, not much survives. We also know that there is more fluke than ever. This video has spread like wildfire, so its too late now. We shall see what shakes out in the aftermath. Just to be clear I am 100% PRO commercial fisherman. Full timers here on the east coast have enough problems. They seem to be dropping like flies. Adding fuel to the fire does not help. This is only my opinion.
