    I do not disagree with this opinion, however there does seem to be people on these forums that delight in starting arguments and those are the people I'm talking about. These people are pretty easy to spot, they randomly jump into these discussions just to start dissent. People that just have strong opinions are okay by me, everyone is entitled to an opinion. But as this post shows, even the most strongly opinionated are capable of re-assessing those opinions and heading down to Strike Zone/West Marine to buy deep-water return devices!

    I'm not against making adjustments. Nobody is perfect. People voiced concern about partially lifting Tarpon out of the water and I changed my handling of Tarpon accordingly. No big deal. For the sake of argument, I picked up a Fish Saver. Do I agree that venting Bull Reds is life threatening? No. But, there is a less controversial alternative and here we are. At times though, I get the feeling that these debates are less about fish conservation and more a smoke screen for hurt egos. I'll play along though.

    Who got banned? :shrug


    "ONLY vent fish with OBVIOUS BAROTRAUMA....Fish that are bloated, stomach poking from mouth, or obvious positive buoyancy".

    I happen to agree with the above statement.

    I'm guessing that less than 5% of the breeder reds I've caught had obvious positive bouyancy and were in need of venting (fishing in 40+ feet of water with medium spinning tackle). Boat side release, fish facing the current, held by the tail (often times using a Boga Grip to maintain control of the fish's head), using a side to side motion to dissipate lactic acid build up until I feel the fish is ready. "Floaters" are few and far between.

    My two cents...spend em anyway ya wanna.

    Steve, I wasn't here to hurt any egos. This was started to show others you don't need to vent every fish you catch, that you should only vent when there is no other way. You were obviously mistaken, misquoting Don over and over again so I cleared that confusion up for you. It sounds like you have given up venting, and will now take a much more responsible approach. No one can give you any more beef for "shanking redfish" because that is behind you now. Everyone wins, including our redfishery..... thank you!

    Last over sized redbass I caught had small isopod type parasites on its tail fin. Should I have removed 1 or all of them? I may try to catch 75 reds, and for the first twenty five I will not removed the crustaceans, the second batch I will remove the crustaceans, and the third batch I will remove and eat the crustaceans. I will attach one of these fish descending devices to the redbass, and will be followed with scuba gear for at least an hour..
    Make the forum great again.....consolidate general fishing with for sale or business but keep reports separate!

    That is the first one that he looked at. Definitely looks like the ticket, so we went up to SZ for that specific device. They had it in stock, but they didn't have the shallow water version that opens at 30 ft, only the one that opens at 50 ft. Dave showed Steve and Leon the one in the pic I posted earlier instead. They wanted to try it because it's made locally. Thanks for sharing the info.

    Oh my understanding is the west Marine version "BlackTip" was when the weight hits the bottom it would release the Bogrip on the fish so it can swim away?

    What size yeti do you recommend for releasing bull redfish in? Doess it make a difference if you vent them or torpedo them into the cooler? Can you leave them on ice for the full 5 days?
  • KnotabiteKnotabite Posts: 332 Officer
    I'd go with the biggest yeti u can get. I use a Coleman with a yeti sticker on one side and a blue salt life sticker on the other and fill it half way with ring tail porgies to insulate the bull reds and they will stay cold for days this way. I do use one of those down rigger upper release thingamajigs to release the carcass when I get around to cleaning them. Good luck

    Holy cow, this is crazy.. Who cares, it seems like just 2 egos that are made from a forum and social media ONLY are non stop going back and fourth.. Its a bull red, one of the easiest fish to target and catch, everyone has different ways and beliefs on how to vent and when to vent just let it go. All Ego's dang... Fun read tho, its like two peewee football players fighting for the 3rd string job...
