Okay, now that you've caught a keeper, how do you bring it onboard?
Hoist it up by the body/tail? Use a snare? :think:

I got a grip all glove, and as soon as I think I got a keeper, I put it on my left hand (right handed), bring to boat grab leader with right and grab just ahead of the tail, and lift! They will tear up a nice 100$ salmon net real quick with there barbs! Lot's of people do it, but every now and then I see a salmon go through a net and wonder if they have been netting sturgeon! Never lost a keeper yet, doing this!

I usually grab the smaller ones by lower lip. Keeper size lower lip and then a hand around base of tail. Big ones, you unhook in the water and let them go.
