Partner caught a beautiful 3lb. LM on Guntersville Sat. Problem was he caught it 14 ft. deep and when we released it at the ramp it's air sack was full and it couldn't swim back down. Now I've read alittle about deflating the air sack with a hypadermic needle. My question is where on the fish to poke it? Do you have to buy the needles at the drug store? I noticed BPS don't have anything like that in their catalog. I really hated to see that fish die, I felt like i could've done something to prevent it. Anything you can help me with will be greatly appreciated.
