Ignored Fish on a hook!!
Some fisherman didn’t fight to release a snag on his line so just broke the line and left, ignoring the other end where a fish was later hooked! The fish still had some life in it but the hook had moved deep into its body fighting for a long time. I couldn’t do much about this poor little fish!
is that a poor little pike minnow????????????? if so, shoulda smashed it into fertilizer....if it wasn't then good rescue job.....but it looks like a norther pike minnow "squaw fish" to me
Yeah I had to do that!
The picture is not showing well, that was a little crappie.
sucks, one time i got a snag and it happen to be hooked to a fish that was half decayed.....good size one too
That doesn't look like any crappie I have ever seen.
looks more like yellow perch to me
Good for you, for attempting a rescue!
But, I have to agree...crappie are not elongated like many fish. It looks like a perch to me too.
i knew i seen somethin funny
You know I guess you're right! That's a perch!
Sorry I'm not good in fish species and crappies and perches are similar!
BTW...if you don't know what different species look like...you can wind up getting a ticket or two from a game warden. You owe it to yourself (and the fish), to know what they look like. And a warden will expect you to know.
Thanks for the links and warning. I usually release what I catch. Sometimes I keep a trout or a carp, which I know them!
