I have had some issues lately judging how big a fish is boatside. I probably flip more fish than I should.

This fish was right at 4#, maybe a shade more......for whatever reason I didnt think it was that big. Not making a "the one that got away" story, I really have issue judging fish at the boat.

so the question is........ what do you do? To boat flip or not to boat flip, that is the question!

Lets talk about it!

You sir must be the most laid back, calm and generally just an easy going guy...

When that happened to me....Well lets just say I'm glad there were no kids around!

I too boat flip more than I probably should.

We try to judge how big they are when they get close but you're right, sometimes they look smaller than they really are.

Maybe its just complacency...On a slow, easy day of fishin it's just easier.

In a tourn maybe we perceive it to be faster, just get em in the boat!

Sometimes I net dinks - especially on some of the slower trips.

 

It's good practice.

that is an excellent idea A-Jay!

not as "sexy" as boat flipping.....but since the name of the game is "in the boat" not "near the boat", you have hit the nail on the head.

Anything decent in size gets the net.  Hardly ever flip them in.

I guess the reality is that I'm so close to the water in the Old Town, It's usually more work to swing one than it is to simply reach down and either lip, net or even Boga Grip the silly little bass-tage.

true.

A lot of what happen on this particlar fish is:

1. I was one the trolling motor, setting up a new angle so I didn't get to set up on the fish like normal

2. As soon as the fish bite/hook set ensued I somewhat panicked and decided to drop the power poles as you see me stand still instead of moving to fight the fish

3. I didnt play the fish either like normal.......still jittery from set up and trying to get the poles down

4. I flat didnt think

5. when setting up the fish for the swing.... I saw it was skin hooked in the roof(caused by a bad hook set)..... saw the bend in the hook and the barb/point. but it was already too late.

lesson learned.

My net blew out of the boat last fall....and have fished wothout one, including my PB fish spring. I lipped her. Net will be purchased by sundown.

It stinks but usually it takes something bad happening before we change our ways.

OUCH, that hurt. I never boat flip anything over 2 lb. I normally lip em, after I did the same thing last year. Whenever over 3, the net comes out. Can't stand losing that nice one. Tight lines, Jman

Yeah right, bla bla bla. Just admit that you had a Mr. Dance moment, or you didn't put enough spit on that hook.

I value my rods too much to do something like that. Go back and look at the first video you guys posted. Watch the rod tip go past 90 degree wgen you flip one in. that's precisely how rods get snapped.

exactly, both of you are extremely correct.

This is a great by-product of filming, you can see what REALLY happens, versus what you THINK happens.
Both Jeff and I noticed it.... I own a net again now, but old habits are going to be hard to break.

 After expending the time, effort and $$ to get a good one, not using a net is like spending all day in the tree stand, having the Big Boy waltz right into your sweet spot and right before you let your arrow fly, you remove the broad head.

 

C'mon Person . . . .
