Padriac, you captured my thoughts. As long as a conscientious effort was made to minimize harm to the fish I can’t second guess an angler. I can remember a number of times during each season when I released a trout that I thought “Sorry guy I didn’t meant to do that to you. Hope you make it.” The only alternatives are to keep all you catch or don’t fish at all. ANyway after seeing the pictures I know where I'm spending my day off tomorrow!

I saw that photo about a week ago and just now read this post here.

My initial...knee jerk reaction to seeing that photo was....

"That fish is dead."

Which I still believe. Too bad

I can't tell if it is dead ,but I can not see holding a fish that way. Even if he didn't harm the gills the strain on its gut couldn't be good, or it's jaw for that matter.I've caught some BIG salt water fish and never would hold one up by its jaw, unless i intended to keep it..most likely that brown either was a wash mout from the hatchery or came up from the river to spawn. I know there are lots of big browns like that down at the mouth of the little lehigh but you have to carry a 9mm. with you in that area..
