A fishing question

Someone challenged me with a bunch of random questions one of which I have no idea about. The person said that letís say you go fishing and you decide to release the fish after catching it, but it is really exhausted Ė for freshwater and saltwater there are specific ways you do this. This person said that there is one of these types (saltwater or fresh) which can be revived by pulled them through the water in the direction they would normally swim in but the other type will die if you do the same thing. They said it has something to do with the way the fishís gills work.

I assume that you can revive a freshwater fish by pulling in through the water in the direction it swims in, but Iím not certain.

Anyone know? JSharr?
Hey by the Jsharr, is there a fishing question that I can ask this person to know if they really know their stuff about bass and arenít just pulling my leg?

I have heard and practised a back and forth motion. The important element is to get water to wash across the gills.

Best practice for an exhausted fish could be to hold it still into the current, but it's arguable (and no side of the argument would have too much data). Marine/FW should make no difference. Holding still into the current wouldn't work for sharks, they need forward motion. Tough to picture a catch/release scenario for sharks.

*Best* practice for catch/release is not to exhaust the fish.

I have been told to hold them in the water, facing into the current to allow them to revive before releasing. I am not that big of a bass fisherman and know very little fishing trivia.

I always figured that if you throw them head-first back in the water, the motion and their instinct to flee will give them enough of a boost to get going in the water again.

I've heard it's best to cut the line and leave the hook in their mouth if they are hooked in the throat. Agree?

Not sure, but if you do, don't do it around here- we got too many noodlers to risk it.

If they have swallowed the hook, it's better off the cut it off and they will eventually digest it. That's better than tearing them up to get it out..
