Bill, I'd say 90% of my fish swing and lift, if it's a decent-sized I give a little help with my foot. naturally with the exception of bass or blue fish I do my best with them both side.
Careful Snook trout ans sheeps aside from their teeth have some nasty spines.
I do have a small folding net that I keep in the hatch for those times when you may want to make sure your catch is in the boat
