If I went Wiper fishing but forgot the net, then hook and play a 5-6 pound wiper until I think I can get a picture, but it gets off the lure first. Does this count as caught?
I knew it would get away or harm me if I tried to haul it into the Kayak.

I mean what are you looking for it to count as? For your own personal sake if you faught the fish the whole way in you caught it. If your asking in more does it count enough to brag about or something kinda way well no, no it doesn't;D

no i don't they only count when they go in the livewell.
Mike you get counted for a short line relese.

short line is when you can see it beside the boat.
long line is when you get it half way in but cant see it. that is when they get much bigger

I did not get the net wet tonight. Was a nice evening to be on the water.
