    Ditto that one. I've had more fish than I can count bleed out from a gill injury. Poor guys made a nice dinner. (all legal catches)
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    yeah, the pics show lots of twisting by the fish specifically cause the fish was allowed to rather than to force it to do as we wished and risk an injury to a fish we wanted to toss back......combined with the rush to get it out of the water, up for pics and then quickly back into the water....all told it was prolly out of the water for around 2 minutes, prolly less.....she wasnt even that tired from the fight and the handling as we didnt have to rock her back and forth to get water pumping through her gills or anything, soon as she felt neutral boyancy she was off like a shot.....

    with no bones for extra weight it was most of the 60 pounds is muscle and the fish is an athlete spending all day every day in the main current only hitting slack water to rest for the night.......they dont just lay still when yah get them out of the water.....

    BTW if you have Tivo tomorrow morning on NatGeo is a Monster Fish episode on these guys......IIRC some of it was filmed on the Yellowstone here in Montana.....
