Default Re: Fish pictures: How to help minimize stress on the fish

Exactly how I do it. When you're by yourself, you can't have the camera ready before you catch the fish...

I net it, keep the net and fish underwater, get the phone into camera mode, raise it out of the water for the pic, lower the fish back into current, stow the phone away, remove the hook gently with hemostats, then I lower the net into the current, grab the fish, hold it with it's head in the current (reviving) until it's strong enough to swim out of my hand.
