    Who needs 3,000 Kokanee?

    I read elsewhere that a boat that jigs for kokanee at Odell Lake has retained over 3,000 kokanee this spring. This seems very excessive to me even though the argument can be made in many lakes, Odell included, that thinning out the kokanee can be a good thing. But over 3,000 fish for one boat in a few months? I'm not jealous at all - I get plenty of kokanee each year, about 50-100 total between my wife and I. But a conservation ethic sometimes means not taking all that you can even if legal. Excessive take of fish reduces opportunity for other anglers and promotes a false impression that the resource is unlimited. Thoughts anyone?

    I agree that is excessive and really should be regulated.
