Releasing Fish

  • Avoid over fighting the fish so that it becomes stressed.
  • If possible, unhook the fish in the water.
  • Carry needle nose pliers and other unhooking tools to facilitate getting the hook out.
  • If a photo is to be taken, have the camera ready before removing the fish from the water.
  • Hold the fish by its tail, and support the midsection with the other hand until the fish swims off on its own.
