We really want to get the fish back into the water as soon as possible. Don’t think that holding them up for pics helps that. Just my thinking . I know everyone here loves pics.but after the fight that fish is pretty drained, especially fish of that size. Want to get them back in the water ASAP. Live to fight another day!!!!
Also on another note. Took the advice of a fellow stager who posted recently in regards to using the yellow colored braided line. Took his advice but was always Leary of it, thought if I can see it so can the fish! Re-spoiled my reels with it. What a great tip. So much easier to see your line in the water but also to see line movement to detect hits.
