Catch & Release Fishing: 
Bluegill Lake has a "Catch and Release" policy for fishing, we'd rather hear 100 kids squealing than  than 1 sportsman bragging! In order to make this successful program we prefer the use of barbless hooks (for this reason treble hooks should be avoided).

How to make a barbless hook as shown on eHow.com: "Catch-and-release fishing is done for sport as well as to meet minimum legal size legal size requirements for keeping fish. This is important so that fish have the opportunity to grow and breed, which helps to keep the fish population stable. Fishing with a barbless hook makes releasing fish a much easier task, as the fish does not become stuck on the sharp, pointy barb on the end of the hook. This also a more humane way of fishing as it does not cause the fish as much pain.        Difficulty: Easy                    
Things you'll need:  Needle-nosed pliers, barbed hook(s), medium-grit sandpaper.

Instructions: 
1.  Place your needle-nosed pliers on the end of the fish hook over the barb. The barb is the small pointy part that
    sticks out near the end of the fishing hook.
2. Press down firmly but gently over the barb to flatten it. 
3. Use medium-grit sandpaper to smooth any rough edges on the barb. Use as a normal hook for fishing."
