Boy thats a tough one :shrug:I never saw nor heard of Gene again.
Anyway, my question is this:
Are you a player or a fighter when you hook a fish?
And, of course, I want to know why.
Depends on the situation and what you have on the other end of your line. Salmon, Silvers and the smaller ones get them in fast and let them go if they aren't bleeding.
Saves them from getting hi levels of lactic acid built up in their system and can survive a release better.
I don't think there is any way you can "fight" with a 250# Halibut and the old gentle pressure works the best:bigshock:
Trout and Steelhead I was taught young not to wear them out cause they would die if you let them go but back in those day's we chose to eat them instead of playing with them like the current laws say you must do:hoboy:
Then again it's all a matter of whats on the other end on which is the best method to "play/fight" a fish :shrug:
