This is Why You Use the Net on Big Pike

This guy just landed a big pike with his bare hands. Watch and see how long it takes to release itself.

They make landing nets and cradles for a reason, and we still insist on grabbing some really big fish with our bare hands.

As the venerable Bill Dance says: “Don’t do that.”

Here’s but one reason why.

Answer: The fish got bounced off of the rocks; the fisherman and his cell phone got dunked and looked bad doing it.

Question: Why do you use a net?

We can laugh if we want, but all those who have had a nice fish rip itself out of your hands and drop in the bottom of the boat or on the shore raise your hands.
