I personally know of very few hunters who take bugs with the intention of getting a trophy. Most including myself are hunting to take them to consume. I have never grabbed a lobster that I did not believe I was going to consume when I went for it. However I have decided to release large ones once I was back on the boat and I had time to see how big they truly were.
My personal rule is to release anything I catch over 8 lbs. Some seasons that ends up being none. I have released as many as two bugs from a single dive.
I too have an issue with people who hunt but do not consume their catch. I especially have an issue with people who spear a fish and return to the boat asking "What is this?" or "Is this edible?"
