It all depends really.. I touch plenty of fish, just not usually if I'm throwing a lure with 2 trebles.. on a LOT of the river up here this year though, I'm not even touching the Pike I catch with a spinner bait because the river's too shallow to get your hands in the water from the shore and get the slime off.. just rather not have it all over in that case. |
Everyone's got the same experiences.. but I can't tell ya how many times I've had fish just barely hooked on a bottom treble and (bare handed or not) you go to grab the fish and it spins around and gets off.. I'll take a treble in the glove any day b4 the bare hand.
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
