Default Re: Do You Use an Net / An Catch An Release

I net all of the smaller fish I catch (read: all of my fish ) because they twist so much when releasing the hook and it is easy to tear their mouths. I use Brodins Ghost Net to reduce slime removal and once the fish calms I use forceps to remove the hook. Ard is right about the net on big fish, I have had to actually laugh at myself when trying to net one.
