I thought I'd see what tools, or tricks that are used to release Halibut. Not just to make it easier but to do less damage to the fish as well. Like what tool do you use to grab their Lips? lip grip, pliers, channel locks etc....
How about when the hook is deep in the throat? Or dang near in thir belly.
If its a barn door do you have a method to gain some control to remove a hook?
Ive often had to take home as counting on my daily, a very small chicken because it swallowed my hook and the only way to remove the hook was to nearly remove the side of its head.
Anything to make life simpler
