Wayne caught his first lake char ever. We were fishing Deka for Koks but catching to many damn Lakers. Cheers.

Nice fish guys!...
Did you C&R or BBQ?

Definatly C&R. I don't like Lakers(even smoked) Plus lakers are very harvest sensitive so we let'em go. Cheers.

didnt seem to stop you from
a) the hero shot
b) grabbing the laker in a sensitive area -- the gills. that fish probably died.

Holding a fish by the gill PLATE is actually not that bad for the fish. Its more of a protective shield for the sensitive gills. Had he been holding the fishes gills, then maybe something could have been said, but considering the fact that you cannot tell by the picture, and that it seems that he is experienced, I doubt he was actually holding the gills. But yes, holding the fish by the gills can cause damage and internal bleeding, so if any one is going to hold a fish like that, make sure you only hold the plate, and not the actual gills.

Thank You LV. I was not going to respond.

his fingers are actually inside the gill plate, 95% chance they touched the actual gills which could and probably would seriously harm the fish.

But since you said it was a sensitive fishery and you only catch and release, you would assume you wouldn't even want to incrase the risk to the fish'es health.

Wayne is a guide at a ocean resort near Rivers Inlet(name sliped my mind right now) I am sure he can release fish unharmed, Cheers.
