What are the old man's arguments with himself about whether or not killing the big fish is a sin?

( what arguments does he make for and against it being a sin?)

The old man justifies killing the fish because it will keep him alive, in addition to feeding many people. He believes he's commited a sin because it was his own pride that led him to kill the fish rather than necessity.
