Releasing fish

Recommended Posts

There has been discussions on releasing salmon with a fish grip and line. My question is do you clamp on to the upper part of the mouth or lower part? Also how much line do you put on the fish grip? Thanks

Attach to the lower lip , run the boat slowly with the lip gripper tied to a rope tied to the boat . Watch the fish should eventually start to swim on its own THEN release it ! If it does not start to swim probably done in and should be harvested . Saw a fresh floater last time out , sad to see !

Bottom jaw and I only have 3-4ft of rope, just enough to submerge the fish. I don't want it long as sometimes I need to lean over and steady the fish so I don't drag it upside down.
