You netted it to bring it up right? put it in the net to release it.

I have seen some use a bucket with 30 feet of mono to lower it down like an elevator

YES! That is THE way to go (to do it RIGHT ;-)

I've seen far too many go "SPLAT" and float away when they hit the water with less than a "perfect 10.0" entry :doh

Simply lower the red in the net back into the water,then raise and lower the net quickly to push water over the fish and through it's gills.

After a few minutes they will recover, turn upright and swim out on their own power.

THAT is a "good release" :bowdown
