Taking photos of fish by yourself is indeed tough, for me I like to use a net and after removing the hook and with the net and fish placed near shore in very shallow water, I then take out the camera and take a photo. I see in your first photo you let your shadow get in the photo, so that is something to try and avoid, I still make that mistake from time to time, but try and position yourself so the shadow doesn't show.
Larry does a nice job of framing the fish with the net. It also gives a size perspective.

excellent first post!

im a sucker for reports with pics

if i dont have a net with me, i like to take a photo before unhooking the fish

hand and fish in the water i grab for the camera, then i snap the photo, unhook em, and release with out ever hoisting the fish out of water or up on the bank

wish i could see your son strapped in while the wife was catching a fish, classic stuff

Looks like you have the rls+ combo from cabelas, how do you like it? I use the 864 and like it, of course I don't have much to compare it too! Looks like you had a great time though, I especially like the beer part

Well done Dakota! It's always nice to get one on the bank. You'll be unstoppable now. The beer looks pretty good too

Best regards
