Your missing the point!

This threads purpose is to educate on the safe return of fish.
Not to analyze the example that Guppie used.

Please try to stay on topic!

I still would like to know how to do it properly while wearing sneakers.
Release it when the wave comes in.

Man, this drives me nuts. It also reminds me that in the past two years I've noticed what seems to be a lot more people just leaving skates and sea robins on the beach to die. Maybe I'm just noticing it more, but on the hook this past spring it was insane how many sea robins were just littering the beach.

I don't want to sound like a jerk, but as for the best way to release a striper while wearing sneakers? Go spend 10 bucks for a pair of rubber boots.

Tunatick, you should be somewhere else where you do not have to deal with people cause, after reading through this thread a few times, and just having this lady show us how some people can be unkind to a Striper, you really look like an idiot.
Maybe you should take needle point or something instead of being a "Sportsman"

A few questions?
What's so laughable, and maybe you can explain why these fish are all dead, That's sounds sad to me ,
Didn't you say throwing the fish like a foot ball , well these are my words, Lets try again, you stated that throwing a fish off a 12' pier will not harm a fish, you mentioned the casino pier does it all the time ?
you also started that throwing the fish in the water like a piece of $hit will not harm the fish ?
Why are these fish all dead ?
I'd be concerned if I seen thousands of fish all dead in one area ?IMHO,
I thinks it's dead wrong to toss a striper that we are fighting so hard to keep around as a game fish to just toss it in the ocean,
A heartless idiot would do this . just IMHO
Any way are these not most of the guys you know well?

Striperhyper thanks for the input. Its a Seaside thing. Manhandies I here ya bud. I'm pretty sure that the water around the tip of the North Jetty is deep and sandy, no rocks. Manasquan is even better. It didn't look like it to me the last time I dove around either one of them though. Most guys don't and won't climb down in the rocks to release. I have never lost a striper to a faulty release so to say, but gill hooked sure it happens. They are a very hardy fish no matter what anyone says.

We all here are Sportsman and we all for the most part know we should respect the game we chase.
But ,as I see above we all like to argue a point, so maybe the sportsman thing is a thin line. Be Kind

Thousands of fish? Dead around the pier? When was that? Is it anymore heartless for guys to load up their cooler if your so concerned about the fish stocks? The ones that are getting tossed back are shorts(the hardiest), what about the 1000's of fish that are kept and killed that are the breeders? On any given weekend I bet the number of fished killed in coolers is far far greater than the number killed by faulty release. You don't promote pure C&R fishing , but you are for the preservation of the species?

# 2 when you release a bass or any fish from the surf, if not done with tender lovin care, this fish will wash in with the waves,there is deep water off of the tip of North Jetty at IBSP, not much of a chance the striper will get bounced around in a wave ,most likely the fish will swim away un harmed. This is only IMHO.
Throwing it in to a wave, the fish will bounce a few times, who knows if the fish won't get stressed out never make it back i to deep water,hold the fish in a swimming position, till the tail starts to wiggle, then wait for high water , and watch it gently swim away .
Read what Fishtank wrote , makes a lot of sense
laughable,as i said in my other post the one that wasn't edited,around any jetty are rocks big and small,and its not deep even out front at the tip of the north jetty,now i would like to go back to the post that was taken down,someone had said that they fished the pier in seaside before i was born,which was 1965,then that person said that they saw hundreds of dead fish because of there release,i disagreed because of the simple fact that i fished that pier hardcore style from about 1983 till the early 90's and was witness to many BIG TIME blitz fishing situations,with small fish and fish to near 50lb and i said the only fish floating were in the sinks,another thingie i know many fisherman who tag and release fish caught on that north jetty"fish that land in the water from a higher point than the fish in that picture guppie put up,and those fish are recaptured nice and healthy months later some years later.the fish in that vid,will be fine,,,p.s the drop to the water from the pier in seaside is prolly close to 15ft,i have and many other guys have caught and released many many fish,in clean water i have thrown back fish that sit there a few seconds then swim off..kicking fish back is another story,stripers are a hardy fish,< if you just drop a fish in the water off the jetty you will do more damage,you need to "toss" it out past the submerged rocks ..i;m sure to be attacked agian or edited,everybody has a different opinion>>good thread check my new thread coming up
