I was thinking about how to re-compress Rock Fish fast and easy, without having to use special gear like an upside down weighted milk crate, or this: http://www.git-r-down.net/6.html or this: http://www.sheltonproducts.com/SFD.html I figure people are lazy and won't go out of their way to save the tiny cods, which is sad, we should be more proactive in Rock Fish conservation. I figure the only way to get people to re-compress their unwanted catch is to incorporate the release device into the gangion itself. It should be illegal to throw tiny cods back only to watch them drift away.....in a "Trail of Tears." Yeah, I coined that and "Chandelier of Death." So I did a little on the water experimenting. When I fish cod, I attach a barrel swivel that has a duo-lock snap to my main line. I then attach my gangion to this swivel. I also attach a Pro-Mar green LED strobe light to this swivel. "No light, no bite." But that's another story. So.....what I did was, I took a 6/0 9174 Mustad and pinched the barb all the way down and attached it to the top swivel previously mentioned. If I get a small cod, I unhook it from my baited gangion and reattach it by the jaw to the barb-less 6/0 on swivel. I then check my bait and re-deploy my gangion into the depths. This takes little extra effort to do the right thing and send your unwanted catch back down. The hook can pivot up and down on the duo-lock snap, so that it turns upside down and drags the cod down, rocketing it back to depth, but hangs upright when you attach the cod. This is easy and effective. The only issue is that now, technically, there are 3 hooks on your rig, even though 1 is un-baited and barb-less. I'm willing to risk it in the interest of my cod conservation efforts. I imagine a good pair of dikes could clip off the hook point, thus, no longer technically being a hook, but attaching the cod would be more difficult. Anyway, just an idea to end............."The Trail of Tears."
