Re: What do you consider a "caught" fish?
These are my Personal interpretations which I go by irrespective of The Species:
I only count Fish which I've Taken The Hook out of as Caught,if by chance it get off before I net it,get it in The Boat or on The Bank then I call it a Fish I've Lost.
On the other hand which has happened numerous times to me & many others.
If The hook comes out of The Fish Whilst it's secure in The Net Then it's counted as Caught also.
