This guy snagged this beauty in the belly. I told him the game warden would fine you 5k and take your gear and privileges away for 3 years. He tried to lay it on the gravel and stall the photo so the fish would die. I told him to put it in the water and let it go and that it would make a sweet underwater shot. His brothers in overalls wanted to kill me they started phoning people telling me they could keep wild fish..I told them not snagged wild fish. I reminded them I did them a favor. They didn't like me very much. I saved this fish.
