i dont think camera skills have anything to do with. Ive only seen played out fish stay still
Actually camera skills have a lot to do with it
why do you think there are so many sh*tty pics of dead fish that are laying there perfectly still
play the fish, take gloves off while playing it, iphone ready, bring er in, snap off a bunch of consecutive shots, maybe 4 or 5. Hopefully one of these shots turns out. They don't always turn out very good in which case I don't bother posting them up. Here is one from yesterday that did not turn out very good, was the best shot of 4 frames.
Went over this last year and like I said then if you want to bring a hot fish thrashing into the shallows for a super quick release go for it! I accidentally snapped one off today doing exactly that. I would much rather just let them take their run or two so they glide in easily as they are often lost thrashing and rolling in the shallows
