I have just a little boat I use for catfishing so I don't have a live well. I practice CPR ... problem is that b/c I have a small boat I don't have room to carry a decent camera so I would like to keep the cats alive on a stinger long enough to get to shore and get pictures, but I don't want to go thru and damage the gills. I've heard you can poke a hole thru the lower lip, but I don't want to make it so the fish can't eat after I get done fishing and take the pictures and release 'em. I guess my question is ... does poking the stringer thru the lower lip damage the fish to the point of endangering the fish? Is there a better way to string them? thanks.
