I know their might be numerous questions like this, but also their is a chance of a new method. When I bass fish I catch and release and now that I'm getting into catfish, I might keep some every now and then, but mainly catch and release. I might never catch a big cat, still going to try, but say I do. Are they usually hooked in the lip where it is easy to unhook them? If it is deeper, how do you unhook the bigger cats that you can't pick up with one hand? I have a net for the bigger cats, but as I read in a book you don't want to put your fingers in a big cats mouth because they can clamp down enough to smash your fingers. So what is the best ways you have unhooked a big cat?
