Here is a nice Dolly I CnR'd. First, I landed him. Then I put him on a stick, through his gills. Huck Finn style. I didn't have a ruler but my frying pan at home is 14" so I brought him home to measure. Here he is enjoying time in the pan. Well, he was just shy of 20". So I lat him go in Lake Washington. I think he will like living there. Lots of perch!
