Fished the Duc yesterday mid-section all was great then..... A gear guy and his buddy float into my water and SPLASH fish on. Now I expect boat pressure but these guys practically hit me (and I think hooked my missed player). So gear guy has a fish, boat is beached and at this point I have front row seats as a spectator. After the 12lb Native rolls over I have been asked to hold his spinning rod while he attends to the fish. I look at the other guy, he is spacing out in the boat so I oblige with one hand my fly rod and the other this gear rod. After 2 or 3 minuets the fish is still flopping around , I think to myself how sweet if it just broke off. I kneel down cradle the fish at both ends as I notice blood. This guy thinks it was important to retract his friggin cheap barbed egg hook rather than a released fish in good condition. Some jewelery is OK for a couple days - bleeding at the release in my book could be a dead fish. Imagine if every gear boat did that even just once ( we lost count of how many boats ) that's a lot of fish. Some people need to wake up!
