how do you keep these large fish while fishing in a tournament?
Actually a rope is pretty hard on fish when in current or what not. A decoy bag works much better. That way you don't have a fish dragging behind the boat by its jaw. Also ropes tend to wrap around stuff pretty easy.also you can ty the fish to a rope and keep it in the water while ur fishing
One of these would work pretty well, too:Lots of people use 100 gallon rubber maid stock tanks.
