A fish caught from deep water will often bloat on surface and will be stunned and unable to swim back down (its gotta hurt). Try attaching the fish through the lip skin with a small hook on a pole rigged with heavy weight (10 oz or more). Send the fish back down. You will be surprised on the way back down he will wake up and you will feel him moving/fight. A sharp jerk of the rod will pull the hook out of his skin and send him on his way. Kirbydog calls this a "sinder". I originally learned it on lake superior. It works.
