Did the same thing yesterday in about the same area. Off Stony Point in 24-27 FOW. Picked up a three man limit before noon with about bout a million whiteys. Threw back about a dozen undersized walters and had to chring on a couple. Two 14" fish bleeding out of the gills and you know they will die, but the DNR does not care. I f you keep them and get caught they will still fine you so back they go for seagull food. Doesn't that just kill you to do that when 5 years ago the size was 13". Rules are rules and it is not worth the fine when you are catching fish anyway. Had a charter captain friend get fined for a 14.75" with ripped gills and DNR said he did it. I could kiss the guy who posted the retrofit of Jet divers last year with the black off shore releases. What a difference on the 30's. The stupid white bass even trip them, love it.

If they didn't have the law, several people would keep 10" walleyes and cut their gills. Unfortunate, but good law imo.

Glad they worked for you, but you can kiss your wife/girlfriend instead :D

I kiss my wife of 42 years everyday and she loves it. Just saying thanks for the tip, it really works well for us. A guy on another thread said he switched to Dubro releases from the black off shore releases. Any idea why? Mine are working just fine. Do they where out with time?

I tried the Dubro releases before going to the black Off Shore, I could not get a very repeatable release. No matter how much I adjusted them. Tried the Off Shore and never looked back. I gave away the other releases. Yes they slightly wear, but just put the line back a touch further in the release. Mine still work just as good, never replaced the pads yet.
