Two fairly recent pieces of research discussed the growing trend of catch and release angling in the bass fishing world and some of the potential implications, both good and bad with this trend. Have bass anglers gone overboard in their zest for this practice?

One is that the fewer bass left in a lake, the more likely they are to try and overcompensate for the deficiency (‘recruitment compensation’ [...]
