Released him, always do. The water was clear and I was able to watch him for a bit. He was doing as well as any other fish I've release.

Forgot the net :AA , was having a challenge controlling him so I swung him onto shore. Sucks, but in that situation a fisheries biologist friend told me about some research that found the loss of fish slim wasn't as much an impact to survivability as too tight of a grip.

Ok, with the exception of comments like Twilightman's, what's your take on it. If you do have some background on fish survivability following handling I'd like to here it.
