For the smaller fish we use a release stick and shove the hook out. We use all circle hooks so sometime it can be kind of difficult but it helps to flatten down the barb. With the large fish and the giant circles we use we pretty much have to clip it off as close as we can. Usually a foot or so from the hook.wind on leaders are nice too.... for a release we just clip the leader with a good pair of cutters. have a back-up pair handy as they will knock them out of your hand occasionally. NEVER wrap a leader on your hand!!!!!
Really, well thats more than we hooked, maybe I can pay you to come out with me and show me how its done. When you chum them up maybe you can radio one of your fishing buddies over and he can stick them.I hooked 5 fish today over 500lbs!!!! Now book a trip with me and I'll show you where!!! And we'll release those fish to even if you want to keep them because I am a shark protecting shark hunter.
Well this is the exact reason why since this board and the other board have been in existence, I have never posted a fish report. I did not post this originally my partner in that particular boat did. All I did was answer a guys question about slow trolling, guess I should not try to give advice makes me look like a think I am the "master shark conjurer". Sorry to be so arrogant. We had one angler on board besides the two of us. Kind of hard to shoot pics, reel on the fish, drive the boat, leader and release. The one he ended up releasing was also in the dark. I shot GoPro Vid of one of the big ones that took off. Its nice but it isnt on a hook so why post that. I also, since I dont put reports up I have never figured out how to put up pics or vids.Next time just take some pics. When I'm sitting on the shitter checking emails and looking at posts I don't want to just read about big claims. I want to see some pics. I don't give a shit if you keep a shark once in awhile as long as your going to eat it. Put together a frickin news article with pictures like Cory does. You seem to be the master shark conjurer so we want to see it not just hear you talk about it. . By the way you guys should of seen these 3 hot chicks I hooked up with last night. Epic!!!
Nice. At your age calling people liars with nothing to back it up. You certainly play by a different set of rules than I do.All big fish and not a pic, your full of shit.Keep dreaming and trying to book a trip.You been hanging out with Keith Poe to much.
