That's really amazing ! I wonder what the magic bait was ? I also wonder if the fish all survived as specially the one in the grass? 

It is still amazing !

There are huge schools of shad everywhere, it is a wonder any of us can catch anything.

I thought the same thing.  You would think the guy in the jersey would take a little better care of the fish

It's about the money, but hey if I were hungry I might eat them, so what can I say. 

Thick juicy bass filets, yum😜

Fishing is finally starting to get better as we can see from all the posts.  I fish for all kinds of fish: crappie, walleye, bass, whites. Really anything that's biting, but I also fish several bass tournament.  I agree, for some it is about the money and big shotting, but try not to lump all tournament fishermen into the same pile.  I do everything in my power to keep my fish healthy and alive for release after weigh in and I know several others do as well.  I have lost only 1 fish out of probably the last 30 events I've fished and he would have died no matter what I did.  Of course I like to catch a big bag of bass and show off my fishing prowess (luck) haha, as much as the next guy, but occasionally your going to have a fish die.  I've read posts for years now without posting and it seems like there is a lot of hostility between anglers of different species and of course everybody hates pleasure boaters and PWC riders.  I'm on the water a lot and I mean a LOT.  Maybe I'm unique or maybe I just go out of my way to be the better person and more courteous fisherman but it seems I have very few negative encounters on the water.  Got off topic a little there, anyhow all I'm saying is fish die and there's a lot of water out there so relax, have fun and enjoy the great resource we all have to share.
