Saved a fish


Recommended Posts

Yesterday, out back, NoMoCo


Somehow managed to  snag a broken off line with a keeper size fish on it.

Single hook, black wire leader. Had to use zig-zag cleat to "retrieve" the braided line.

 

Using loooong nose pliers, removed the hook (thickest hook I ever seen, barely started to rust) from deep in its throat and let the fish go, was in good shape. It felt I was there to help and didnt resist the retrieve, otherwise be a tough show. Dont want braid that been soaking in that water for days, to slice through yer flesh !
