What release tool do you use?
 
What method do you use to remove the hook from your fish?

Seenyore, ees not a poll!

I use at least hemostats, and if trout fishing, a net as well.

Sorry, Cliff I was still working on the options. You can vote now.

If I need help which doesn't happen very often cause I use barbless hooks, would be forceps

I use what ever I can get my hands on. It is either Pliers, forcepts or the long distance release. I'm good at the LDR.

On the odd occasion where I don't do an LDR I use a hemostat.

For the size fish that I catch, I really need channel locks. :shades: But since that wasn't an option I chose hemostats/forcepts.

Is gaff & release an option.
Seriously I use a net only if the fish (trout) sre still feisty or for whatever reason I can't use my handy dandy slit tube, catch & release tool. & then I'll use Hemostats. If I can release them without using the net I will. I've never tried one of those small Boga Grip like tools on trout & I wonder if they will immobilize them long enough to release them quickly without handling them & compromising the protective slime. I've used them on strippers & of course bluefish & pike , & other toothy critters but I wonder if trout's lower jaws are strong enough to handle the strain. I don't think I'll have to lift the fish out of the water completly just the head. Has anyone tried using those tools?
