Wasn't trying to be a jerk! Just pointing out.

I agree that they shouldn't be lifted out, but when it's someone's first billfish and they want that one pic, it can be a difficult choice when everybody is all amped up.

I also look at it like this; the fight stressed the fish out a ton for X amount of time. 10 seconds out the water probably doesn't hurt that much especially considering you can support their body weight much better in a kayak without the lift needed to clear the gunwale on a boat.

I dunno. I'd rather leave them in, but...
