So this is just a little rant/pet peeve I have.
I have always been taught that "You eat what you kill". It is a basic moral principal that I strongly believe in. I am not against killing animals and keeping fish. I love to do both those things. But damnit you can't just keep it and let it rot.
My friend and I both love to trout fish. Earlier this winter we caught two limits one day and he had to go to class so i offered to clean them and freeze them. I did that. The next day we went fishin again and caught a few more. like 5 between us. I had to hurry to class when we got back so he said he would clean them and throw them in the freezer. I went to his place 4 days later and they were just sitting in his fridge, guts and all. I asked him why he didnt clean them and he said he didnt feel like it.
Fast forward to friday night. We decided to go catfishin. He caught a nice channel cat. 28" and 8.5lbs. well he wanted to keep it so we could have a fish fry. I reminded him about the trout and he said that he would do it this time so i said ok. i then wrote down instructions for him showin him how to skin and fillet the fish. Well I went by there this morning and the fish was still hanging on the tree. not skinned or gutted. It is ruined.
I feel terrible because I knew this was going to happen. I should have just taken it to my place and done it myself. Pretty much I told him I won't go fishing with him anymore if he plans on keeping any fish.
Ok. That is the end of my rant.
