Oh poop, this angle doesn't do the 7" yearling laker justice at all! Thing faught like a 4lbr, or maybe that was just because Mike had it wrapped 10 times and it came up backwards..

any tips on how to grab a larger 2+lb trout when it's been landed? When im by myself holding a big trout with one hand while using the forceps with the other, I feel I have to apply too much pressure on the fish with my hand to keep it from struggling/moving around too much (i grab it with my 1 hand by the back, trying not to touch the gills, this is awkward as hell though) 

 

edit: just recently started fishing trout

Use a tailing glove and grip the fish by the tail then remove the hook while the fish is still in the water or bring the fish to shore, reach down with your forceps and remove the hook .

Best thing to do is to hold the tail out of the water... remember that all the power comes from the back side and if its kicking its tail while your holding it in the water, it can break free of your grip...  takes a bit of getting used to but the more fish you will catch, the better you will become at dealing with it.

...i wonder why the fly guys on TV always handle the fish gently, but the guys with mercury written on thier shirts grab every single trout and sensitive species of fishby the gills---some of these guys life the fish up and its almost folding in half by the gills...millions of people watch these shows why doesnt anyone complain or mention they are a senstive fish not a duffle bag? does anyone find this strange?

 

BANG ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  .... what an awesome observation! I agree whole heartedly!!!!

The topic of hero shots/poses always seems to create friction on the forum. For those that are interested, read Dr. Bruce Tufts study on the mortality rate of played out rainbow. It's an eye opener and should convince most of us to keep the fish in the water if you're serious about catch and release.Granted, we all like pictures for whatever reasons, but it's not always necessary is it? Personally, I don't feel the need need to document every second of life's moments for the internet, in fact, I dropped  off FB because I couldn't get photos of my kids back. I'm puzzled by the flack some forum members get for trying to simply educate others

On some of those bass shows i think that they should be sitting down in a chair with a seat belt. Guys if you're gonna take a pic make it ultra quick and put them back in. It isnt worth it taking a hero shot and have the fish dieing later just for a 'cool' pic.

just keep it in the net submersed in water and get some great looking glassy shots of the water over its head and body. I got a great shot of a largie last week like this.

Also plugging my fish related photography, just started the blog so not to much content yet. I didn't want to post photos from fall or winter in the summer so I am basically only putting up new photos atm.
