On a recent trip to a local lake that's loaded with greenbacks and

smallies, I noticed several fish floating on the top swelled and ready

to pop(so to speak). I didn't investigate to see what speices they

were, I didn't really want to know.

Evidentally these fish were caught deep and their swim bladder had

killed them. There is an easy way to prevent the death of a deep

caught smallie or largemouth. This is common in the cold months.

If this is a repost of another topic, I appoligize but it kills me to see

or know that a 6lb smallmouth died because of an unknown.

Here is a link to show the proper way to deflate a fish swim bladder....


Again, sorry if this is a repost of someone elses topic. It never hurts to

review these things anyway if others have missed it........
