Fish Handling Etiquette
Catching & Landing
Stay close to your rod/line to avoid gut-hooked fish.
外围体育投注Avoid playing fish to exhaustion; land as quickly as possible.
外围体育投注Use a landing net to reduce handling time, stress, & injury to fish.
外围体育投注Keep fish wet & calm, and over water.
外围体育投注Provide proper support; cradle fish one hand under belly near water surface - never hold by the gills.
Treat fish gently; avoid squeezing tightly.
外围体育投注Use wet hands/gloves when handling to reduce loss of fish's protective slime.
Work quickly & calmly.

If hooked deeply - leave the hook! Cut your line as close to hook as possible.
外围体育投注Hold fish upright underwater.
外围体育投注Let fish recover before releasing (you should see gills opening & closing).
Let it swim away on its own.
