The other 11 myths include: - The oldest fish are the biggest fish - The biggest fish are always females - Old fish don't reproduce (i believe that this was recently debated on this site) - Fishing for spawning fish will not harm the population - You can't live release lake trout caught in deep water - You can't live release fish in winter because they'll freeze - Adding chemicals to your livewell helps fish survive - Female bass guard nests - Most lakes in Canada are fish facories teaming with many species - If you find the food, you'll always find the fish - The pike aren't biting because they're losing their teeth (this one is new to me lol) I've heard the pike teeth one too, but decided pretty quickly it was bogus as well. As for a few of the other ones, I'm not too sure how I feel about that.. If you find the food, you'll always find the fish? Nothing is an ALWAYS, but it's generally a safe bet. Better yet, find the food that sticks around the structure, and you'll find the fish. As for the fish factories, I can't speak for lakes in other provinces, but if you go to many of the lakes around here, you have a good shot of catching atleast 2 or 3 different species of fish at any given time. That's pretty good in my books... But aside from that, the general scope of these last few posts (which has been discussed before) was about leaving hooks in fish. Although it is responsible to keep a fish that is severely hooked if at all possible, other circumstances can prevent this... if you're already at you limit for fish (which have been already been killed), if that species has a zero limit, or if the fish isn't within the legal size limit (I'm sure there's many more I could come up with). But anyways, do what you can, but use common sense.
