Default Keep the dinks or throw them back?

Wondering what everyone’s opinion on keeping dinks in lakes like Green Peter where overpopulation could be a cause of small fish. (And the limit doesn’t keep you from catching dinner)

I’ve been keeping them and smoking them whole (6-8” fish).

Lately I’ve been feeling like I shouldn’t release them as it does more good pulling them out of the lake.

What’s your opinion?

Less fish in a lake/reservoir=bigger fish (eventually)

They die if you let them go.

It seems that way over 50% die when released but that can feed the Osprey...if they float or crawdads if they sink.

Or you can use them like the Native Americans did and bury one under each hill of corn you plant as fertilizer...white Shoepeg of course so you have more corn bait.
