Nice looking fish! Saturday was a beautiful day to be on the water. Were you using bucktails or body baits? Where about were you fishing?

that depends on alot of factors/ but the warmer the weather/water the shorter the time fish should be out of the water. in high temps a fish can die in under a minute easy if was exhausted during the fight

Here's an example of netting, unhooking and releasing a muskie. It also shows how long a fish should be out of the water for measuring (if needed) and a photo if you have everything ready. During the whole process this fish is out of the water for about 8 seconds for a photo and measurement.

This applies to most boats under 24' and/or with sides lower than about 30". On a larger boat with high sides a revival tank would be the best option to keep the fish underwater during the process. Sorry for the low quality video, this is a rough cut.

Something else to remember is that it's OK to cut the hook off inside the fish's mouth instead of keeping them out of the water so long. Release them with the hook in their mouth, and it will disolve or rust out in short time and the fish will very often survive.

It's a good idea to carry some heavy cutters in your boat to cut the hooks and not harm the fish.

Excellent report and and awesome pics JK and you even stacked em , top notch post all the way around.

I can't remember the last time I had a fish hooked so deep that getting the hook out was a problem, other than panfish with little hooks, I can't even remember anyone I was fishing with have it happen, but we usually have the rod in hand and are usually drifting or trolling so maybe you feel it quicker and the motion makes the hook up quicker.
