Good looking fish and great job. I guess some people just might not have a very good understanding of those systems or fish in them. Good for you to power through the BS and go catch fish!

Jimmy tell me you bonked those fish you dragged up in the mud and left on the beach???

Otherwise, you need to learn how to handle fish your returning to the water cause that is some bad shit...I thought stew taught you better...

They look like they've been clipped but still no excuse for dragging any fish your returning to the water through the mud and on it's side in the dirt...OK!!!

I did! Is that not how its done? Man this one time at band camp.......... we fished the local river. Bead up a really big fish, mud wrestled for a few then we shook it real violent just to teach it a lesson. After numerous pictures out of water and a release the fish was so happy. We seen it later on the beach catching some warm sun and resting on its back. Its all good!

I don't mean to be a bitch about it...just think that now that you have learned the catching part, the handling is just as important and releasing...

It's something we all have to learn and sometimes it means you might have to break a fish off if you can't land it properly....

What would be a good point in all of this is....If this was the state of Wa. which requires you to keep wild fish in the water....(granted this one isn't wild and not in water but close to) Is this the better option of taking a picture over a guy briefly lifting it out of the water for a picture????

Good thing...it's a learning process, just stay in the water a little deeper and the fish won't get freaked as much...Could you have bonked them? Hate seeing a hatchery live another day...even though those poor bastards got to swim so far....

and don't worry, next time stew is at band camp and the game farm we'll stick some of his own stinky salmon juiced beads in his pocket, for his friends...

AWHHHHH Beads and crawlers for Stewwy !!!!!!!!!
Jimmy it was a true pleasure to hang with you on the river buddy, your passion for the sport is what I would wish for any one. Keep up the good work, and you don't have to kill all hatchery fish , that is your personal decision to do so or not .
BTW, your secret fish is still secret with me buddy, wink wink:rofl::rofl:
