Taking care of our Bull Redfish

Northeast Florida is a little unique when it come to Bull Red fishing as the water we typically catch them in is around 40' or more and has a strong current. That means we need to take extra care to insure a successful release. That care may include venting the fish properly, minimizing time out of the water, not touching it's gills, supporting the fish with two hands, and not hanging it from the lower jaw.
I have included a link to a .pdf that has some great information on catch and release dos and don'ts that will apply to most fish. There is nothing wrong with trying our best to take care of the fish we plan to let go.
