These rigs are especially handy when you catch those 3' red drums that would otherwise float away on top.

New Regulatory Requirements
What are the new reef fish gear regulations?
• The regulations will require the use of venting tools and dehooking devices when fishing for
reef fish in the Gulf of Mexico. The rule will also require all persons aboard a vessel
harvesting reef fish to possess and use non-stainless steel circle hooks when using natural
baits.
Ah, there you go. You must vent then I believe you'd be free to use this device.

Had to bump this old thread with all the mention of floating fish. Guys I know people say there are enough Snapper and Flipper has to eat BUT lets be responsible stewards of the Sea. This release is easy to make and with things we probably have on the boat. This is only the initial version and has been tweaked some since. Add a large snap swivel upside down on the top for attaching quickly. Works with all fish with barotrauma. Here's a link because the pics don't show anymore.

What depths do you guys feel it's necessary to start venting/deep releasing fish?

I know its the same thing technically, but if the game wardens or whoever saw you dropping instead of popping would you get in trouble?

Also, I'm pro dropping but not if doing this is against the law. Ya Know?
The law this year has dropped the requirement of a vent tool due to the damage it causes when you send them back down to the deep.

I believe there's more to it than just depth. How fast you bring them up also comes into play. When they show signs of trauma or you can't get them to sink/revive. The release rig can be used on them all and probably gives them a better chance of not getting eaten on the way down. Quick and easy rig to put together also.
