Okay, I just watched this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKRJy...eature=related. In it the guide uses his pistol to shoot the fish that his clients are landing. This seems ridiculous to me.
1. Water is not a good surface to shoot at or so I've been told.
2. You could shoot the fish and the lure off at the same time. Doing so, a fish is killed and wasted. Ive seen this happen with a huge halibut.
3. It just gives the impression that alaskans are idiots.
Even though it worked out for this guy they were still bonking them with a stick. I guess I like the net method and sliced gills.
on a side note those were some nice kings!
