Great advice. I only have one thing to add, about netting a fish when you're anchored in a swift current, like below a powerhouse. When you get the fish up to the boat, your line is going to be really tight between the rod tip and the fish's mouth because of the current. Since you never want to net a fish from the tail, trying to net the fish from the head can break the line, knock the hook loose, or even knock the fish out of the net unless the rod holder drops the rod tip at the exact instant the fish starts going into the net. The rod holder still needs to be alert just in case the fish gets out of the net.
