I'm as guilty as the next guy of taking a picture of a fish out of water.  I've never "beached" a fish, or left it lying in the dirt, that seems like a really stupid thing to do unless you're going to be eating it.

 

But I'll pick a bass up by the lip and hold it out for a photo op, then give it a gentle supported release.  I'll set a walleye on my hand for a picture, I'll support a pike horizontally and take a picture.

 

I don't believe there's anything wrong with that, and you'd be hard pressed to sell me that it's detrimental to the fish to have it out of water for the picture.

 

That said, I take pictures of maybe 1 in 20 fish I catch.

Where did you see that Donny? On this Post? Somewhere else?

 

I'm asking because I'd like to see that Picture. I went through the 3 Pages and didn't see anything like that. Maybe I missed it.

 

"How is having a thousand dollar reel and a hand made rod rela(e)vent ?" Lost me on that Question. Unless it's part of the Fish Picure. Yes? No?

I don't think he's on this forum, but the fishing pics he posts on a couple other boards are spectacular. All done with the fish's welfare in-mind.

I was referring to MJL from OFC/FF.NET. That's his link and those are his pictures. I put it up as an example that fish don't need to be shake n baked in mud or sand to get a good picture.

Note to self - avoid glamour shots.

 

 

As someone new to fishing, I've made my mistakes in handling fish (see my avatar).  For a novice it's pretty exciting to pull in something big, soon they all start to look the same and the photo ops aren't as frequent. 

 

I've done some reading on handling fish, and how long to keep them out of the water.  Don't realize how sensitive these creatures are until you read up on it.

 

Still struggling with hook removal at times, trying to do the least amount of damage as possible.  All the things you learn with experience.

We've all been there before dude. My first trout flopped around in the mud and swam off looking like a catfish with my hands shaking from the excitement. But it is best to keep the fishes welfare in mind. There are also more acceptable practices compared to others. Bass guys vertically hold fish and no one says a thing but hold a trout or muskie like that and be prepared to be punished by the long arm of the internet law. In fact its probably really bad holding any fish like that because they aren't designed to be... wel... held like that. Anyways - that's why the forums exist - knowledge really is power. Welcome to the world of online fishing forms :)

1 shot would be enough. Saw a dude hold pike by the gill plate and do multiple shots...and even passersby were taking shots with him holding fish...he was a star....
