Witnessed a 12# steel or bright crome Ho landed, not 100% on the fish ID, going into why i couldnt tell which would be a spot burn, so i will leave that out. Once the fish was landed it was kept out of the water for ~5 minutes for pictures and for everyone to get a look at, by the time the fish was returned to the water it was far beyond the point of revival and the fisherman did not make a valid attempt to even try, just pushed the fish off into about 5 feet of water to lay there dead. At what point is a picture worth killing beautiful crome?

1: Welcome to the forum.
2: Recently?
3: I actually fished the DSR last year fishing the Meadow. All of a sudden a flopping ho drifts right by me. I jogged down the river, grabbed him, and them spent 5 minutes reviving him. He swam away very strongly. I actually had some hippy butthole yell at me and insinuate what I did was wrong. True story. Was fishing with Pliskin1 and Eddy Martin

You should have stuck this guys head underwater for 5 minutes to show him how easy it would be for him to breath. I hope he at least brought his prize home after that but something tells me this genius just walked away.

Wow, ridiculous. I wont even fish for them in warm water, unless I intend on keeping one. Other than that, I rarely ever even take pics anymore. Get the fish in a few inches of water, twist out hook, then point it back toward deeper water. Revive for a min if necessary, most of the time they just bolt.

Most of the time I'm fishing alone so taking pictures is out ,so if possible, I try to do as Jagerboy does with a water release.

In regard to senior snagger's question, this event took place today. And i strongly agree with the action of reviving a spent fish that is hurting after a fight, whether mine or a drifter. That one fish a few days later could be the fish of a lifetime to someone who has never caught a salmon.

I think that some of my favorite pictures are taken during the "revival" period. Kind of tells a story just looking at the picture itself. It's a win/win for both parties. The fisherman was able to catch the fish and the fish lives to fight another day.....

So the fish have started to move into the river?

Stop whining, name calling, arguing, flexing your computer muscles, and just fish!

Just like everything in life boys, there's a right way and a wrong way to do it. And like status quo, the right way requires more effort, and such is usually ignored.

Kind of related to the thread topic... A friend told me about a cool app for the iPhone called salmonsize. Punch in weight and girth and it gives you a estimated weight. And it's only .99 cents:)

IDK, the wife got me an underwater camera with video for Christmas. I can't wait to try it out. That being said, respect the fish.

from a photographers point of view, i take pictures of a bunch of fish, some big some small, each fish has a different apperance if you look and some things spark my interest on a fish, the irrodecent markings on the tail of a fresh steelhead, the pink and purple hue's, the spots, the colors. the person who caught it, the scenery around where you caught the fish, all tells a story in the picture. but i also have boga grips and do not take the fish out until i have my camera settings where i want them and i am ready to take a few fast pictures.

See the attached link for one guides description of release techniques. I agree with his comments on the Boga.... OK to subdue, not OK when the user hangs the fish (trout) fully by the jaw from the boga.

Pretty decent writeup I thought.

Last year I saw someone bring steel. He proceeded to leave the fish floundering in 2 inches of water lit a cigerette and smoked the whole thing. I thought, hey he is going to keep the thing. After about 5 minutes he procedded to remove the hook and TOSSED it back in the water. Never said anything, you never know who is packing or looking for a fight. I was disgusted.

Unfortunately, you are always going to have this. These fishermen are grown men and are going to do whatever the hell they want. You can only hope that the proper authorities catch them in the act. I just make sure I don't compromise my own ethics when fishing and the rest are on their own.
