Not this again.....so how about when you are surf fishing and reel the fish up in the surf through the sand? Are we supposed to magically levitate the fish?sandwashslugger said:
great quote by teddy roosevelt on your postsRyanF said:I think its better for the to lay it down on the grass than to lip it like everyone else does. Fish cant support their internal organs held like that out of water, more so with bigger fish but I think he was much happier layin on the grass then feeling his internals sag.
I cant say that it is a huge factor with a small LMB like that, but its a problem that has come up with the boga grip. Holding large fish vertical by the lip and letting them hang, they lose their natural bouyancy from being in the water and naturally their internals are not really made to support the full force of gravity. Could be hogwash, but if your are going to lip a decent fish you might as well cradle the belly with the other hand too.sandwashslugger said:Hmm, never heard that before, but that could always be a possibility. I would think a fish on the ground would have trouble supporting its own organs, kind of like how beached whales die when they are beached because of internal compression.
