As a practitioner of CPR I firmly believe in the preservation of our catfish habitat. And on certain occasions there comes a time when one must keep a fish alive for periods of time in order to have a photo taken. This is where the issue comes into play. While most probably use stringers to keep there catch alive we have chose to use the common duck bag or mesh bag. Stringers imo can cause damage to the fish gills, one of its most vital organs. And seems to add to the stress that they are already under(It ticks them off !!). Using the duck bag the fish can be submerged completely in water, without any stress from a stringer in the gills. You can even tie them off to a nearby tree and allow the fish deeper water for better oxygenation. Another benefit is that the bag will usually hold a couple of fish(unless of course, it is a monster). They are less easily missplaced and imo can save alot of fish! So take you time a catch a few more, knowing that you bigun' is still alive!
