Return 'Em Right


Return 'Em Right has been in development for some time and is a program to SAVE FISH. Most offshore or even inshore anglers have had the experience of releasing a fish (for whatever reason) and seeing it float off belly-up or be attacked by an unwelcome predator lurking nearby. Research has clearly shown that the simple method of air release from the fish is not working at depths. Now you can join a program devised to address this problem and get FREE GEAR to do so in the process.

CCA Mississippi will release further information on RETURN 'EM RIGHT as we move forward but for now, go to the website  and follow the steps to meet the training and then be sent your gear.

With Red Snapper season just about on us, we need to conserve our reef fish resources and this is a great start.
