I Urge CATCH AND RELEASE and here are a few tips to use.
While initially used extensively as the domain of Fly Fishermen,”catch and release” is now practiced by most fishermen. Fish stocks worldwide are under pressure, some forms more that other so unless you grab for the pot release the fish. Most of us unfortunately have no idea if the fish is male or female, carrying eggs or not so releasing the fish safely back to its habitat is the right thing to do.
These hooks are designed so that the point is turned away from the shank to form a round shape. The Circle Hook has been heavily researched and is a must for many catch-and-release anglers. Eliminate the Barb on the hook.Use a pair of pliers or forceps to squash the barb down. This makes for much more interesting fishing as you need to keep the line taught so that the fish does not spit out the hook. Barbless hooks are much safer, simpler and quicker to remove therefore causes less stress for the fish.
Be conscious of the fact that hooking a fish is extremely stressful for it. Too much stress can allow the fish die even after hours following release.
To combat this problem use oversize equipment to land the fish as soon as possible.
Use a web that will not damage the fish.
Use surgical forceps or special pliers and a tool which may reduce the metal of this hook if necessary.
If your forceps/pliers won’t release the hook then cut on the line where it is tied to the hook. The hook will rust soon and give the fish a better chance of recovery.
Never ever attempt to remove a hook through the fish’s gills. In fact don’t touch the gills in any respect.
Fish may appear lethargic when released. Hold the fish to the stream or in still water hold the fish lightly and move it backward and forward until you feel it is about to be released.
And now the main issue!
While the catch and release issue but it’s definitely in the forefront of saving our oceans for future generations.
You have no doubt seen on the news and other TV programs about global pollution of the oceans. It’s in everyone’s interest to be responsible!
Leave the area better than you found it. Always have a container or bag with you to take your garbage, used line, lures, flies, bait containers and more with you to dispose of in the right manner.
