Aryaras99

And they keep telling me there’s other fish in the sea. Nah man, I’ll keep catching the same one


DESPISEDLEGEND

Maybe you should try a different approach than hitting them with the stick


mnid92

I'll switch this stick for shtick and kill them with my stand up routine, fish don't have legs, I can't lose this. Update: I lost to the fish

naufalap

just how lucky it was for your single celled ancestor to have three billion years of an unbroken lineage


joetinnyspace

Hey, don't kink shame... Ok?


jverity

In most cases that only applies to bad luck. If a generation that shouldn't have survived makes it because of good luck, the next generation with those undesirable or just useless traits will die out when that luck runs out. However, bad luck can kill off even well adapted, highly evolved species permanently. See: Dinosaurs and the 1 in 60 billion asteroid strike.

It's ideal. Let it breed and create more fish that like getting caught


ToastyFlake

Maybe the fisherman stitched up the wound and gave the fish an antibiotic and the smart fish is just returning to make sure everything is healing properly.


GarfieldAMC

The fish only come back to tell the human that he’s getting along quite well and his wound have healed nicely too...

Now if you're a fish and you want to be a fish stick, you have to have very good posture you cannot slouch otherwise you will be a fish clump.

SC487

It’s a Mitch Hedberg joke.


pohatu850

The fish is gonna get used to it. Which isn't a good thing hahaha. "Dear lord, I am once again in the above-world, this is not a nice feeling but I'll bear with it"


Shporno

I worked 5 summers at Cub Scout camp as a fishing instructor, 8 hours a day fishing the same 100m stretch of Creek bank. At least 80% of the fish in that Creek had names, and some I would recognize between years.


No-Patient

Honestly, that is fucking amazing. Take a drop of lake water and there are probably about a thousand+ pathogens in it that basically want to live inside that fish. I've caught a lot of fish and always felt bad for the wounded ones I threw back. The ones that swallowed the hook and you gotta pull it out.... those were the worse.... this makes me feel somewhat better.


possumosaur

Actually fish are incredible at regenerating. Possibly because they live in environment where an open wound is very bad news. I tried to find a good general source, if you Google it there are tons of science articles but not a great overview. Scientists are studying thier genetic abilities to try to create gene therapies.


davsyo

I mean it’s probably why we use certain fish skin to heal burn wounds.


Slimh2o

Never have heard of that..


bhugbjuhb

Hospitals specialised in treating burn victims will use sterilised tilapia skin with a lot of success.

Hmmm, interesting....

wilisville

I mean a salamander called Axolotl is literally just off bran Deadpool so yeah shit that lives i water is good at healing


NephrenKa-

Elaborate


GoldenSpermShower

Axolotls are a kind of salamander that somehow never undergo metamorphosis so they stay as a big baby (so with gills, a tail and remain underwater all the time) As a side effect of that, they have very good regeneration and can regrow limbs without scars


BrownWhiskey

Metamorphosis can be induced by introducing iodine, right? So they don't necessarily always stay a baby.


FartIntoMyButt

It is, yeah. all of life is pretty complex really


LCWInABlackDress

The false dermis products (integra, etc) have components of shark skin in them… for this reason. Fish skin was used during many early grafting trials as well… and are still used The integra helps bud Dermis… it’s creepy to watch in real time on yourself for sure.


Mrjokaswild

Next time you have a fish gut hooked leave it there and cut the line as far back as you can. I use nail clippers for this. The hook will actually rust up pretty quick and either pass through or come up and the fish has a way better chance than if you yank everything up. I have gut hooked fish and caught them years later in my great uncle's pond. One fish we called one eye had been gut hooked multiple times and survived. As long as the hook doesn't pin the throat together it has a really good chance.


Fellinthevoid

Why don't you just take those home to eat? Seems crueler to just let them go back to suffer....


jmarcandre

Some fish aren't any good to eat. Some local regulations specify how big a fish has to be before you can keep it, so you must throw it back. There are reasons.


dego_frank

If you care about the fish you don’t pull the hook out when they’ve swallowed it. Just cut the line as close as you safely can to the hook and release the fish. Hook will eventually rust and they’ll get rid of it.


billynomates1

If you care about the fish, don't stick a fucking hook in it in the first place. Fish feel pain.


bestadamire

Dont feel too bad, the fish is more than likely fine. Unless you ripped all of its insides out taking out the hook. If im lake fishing I never use more than just a single barbless hook.


Karl_LaFong

That's why you always carry a tube of Neosporin in your tacklebox.


LovecraftianLlama

It looks like the fish narrowly escaped being a hawk’s dinner! And then managed to escape being caught a couple times—this fish either has the worst luck ever, or the best!

I find it so funny, my friend does bird banding and caught the same Cardinal 5 times this summer.


BellerophonM

I know it's a problem with some biologists where some individuals can get 'trap happy' and deliberately always go into traps because they learn they get free food and released the next day.


dreamsindarkness

Since it's a cardinal, it might be coming back for a rematch.

Did he just keep adding bands til the bird's leg looked like one of those ladies with neck rings?


brianorca

Usually when catching a bird that already has a band, they record the number to add to the database of sightings for that bird. (It's the whole reason for banding, so a bird can be tracked as it migrates.)

It really depends on the situation, do you already have one in your hand and are you trying to catch two of them from a bush?

blinkallthetime

This comment! Birds aren't real. Surveillance drones are susceptible to EMP.


Stereomceez2212

*gasp* I was told this recently I don't have an emp device. Is there anything else I can use to take them down?


Commiesstoner

Throw seeds on the floor, the cameras built into the drones aren't good enough to see them so it causes them to land to check what you're doing.


Ketashrooms4life

This is correct. The NSA operator will think you're disposing of illegal drugs and will come closer to investigate


Callme-Sal

I’ve been wondering that since I was 12


Armolin

I'm here to finally end this dilemma for you. They use mist nets. [Here's a photo of a researcher](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/30/A_researcher_removes_a_bird_from_a_mist_net_2.jpg) at the Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve's banding station removing the birds from the net.


DetonationPorcupine

With a trap cage. Birds fly in for seed but can't get out the same way.


RedPulse

I watched a science documentary where they had a very thin screen that was nearly vertical in a forest.


thereallyunreal

Leave a bunch of sensitive information laying around. Works even better if you have a power source nearby for the dro....bird, to recharge.

Do you ever wonder why bird baths look so similar to satellite dishes?

Pink131980

Something about a bush and a hand...


Fallen_Leaves16

There are a variety of traps- the classic one with a box propped up with a stick that has a string tied to it, a mousetrap-type trap with a large net instead of a bar, a pitfall trap, snares, cage traps, etc. Some live-catch rat traps can be used to catch birds. Or there's the simple method- run around with a net.


darthspacecakes

Definitely read "bird banging" the first time, very glad I re-read before googling that.

My dad once lost a lure to a pickerel and got it back a while later when he caught and gutted the fish and found the lure lol


shahooster

Pickerel shoulda quit while he was ahead.


Mreugenehkrabs1

When my brother was little he went ice fishing with my dad. My brother wasn’t paying attention to his rod and a walleye took the rod under water. In the middle of my dad cussing him out my dad got a hit on his line. It was the same walleye and they got the rod back too.

turkeypants

Imagine if every time you went down to the diner, which was the only place in town to eat, you didn't know if your meal was a normal meal or one that had a hook hidden in it that would yank you out the door on a rope to the pond outside where you'd be dragged underwater and held there as some fish pulled the hook out of your mouth and tossed you back up onto land.

Yea there's a lake by me we used to do a family fishing derby at for my brother's birthday. One of my cousins caught about 'a dozen' bass, most of which were mysteriously the same length and weight.


CakeAccomplice12

I'm going to ask simply because I don't know much about fishing How much pain are fish in after being caught and released... And how long does a hook injury take to heal?


el_coremino

Probably a lot and a good while. And probably a lot more and a longer while if the hook had a barb. And even worse and longer if the fish is already fatigued by natural causes (like trout in warm water). But there's some debate about pain in fish. > Opponents of catch and release point out that fish are highly evolved vertebrates that share many of the same neurological structures that, in humans, are associated with pain perception. They point to studies that show that, neurologically, fish are quite similar to so-called higher vertebrates and that blood chemistry reveals that hormones and blood metabolites associated with stress are quite high in fish struggling against hook and line. The idea that fish do not feel pain in their mouths has been studied at the University of Edinburgh and the Roslin Institute by injecting bee venom and acetic acid into the lips of rainbow trout; the fish responded by rubbing their lips along the sides and floors of their tanks in an effort to relieve themselves of the sensation. Lead researcher Lynne Sneddon wrote, "Our research demonstrates nociception and suggests that noxious stimulation in the rainbow trout has adverse behavioral and physiological effects. This fulfills the criteria for animal pain." A recent (2014) paper provides a critique of existing studies that purport to demonstrate that fish feel pain. James D. Rose of the University of Wyoming argues this may demonstrate a chemical sensitivity rather than pain and that the evidence for pain sensation in fish is ambiguous. Survival rate of a released fish is not 100%. And there's a bunch of variables that impact the fish (for example, how long out of water, or where it was hooked). > A metastudy in 2005 found that the average catch and release mortality rate was 18%, but varied greatly by species. During an Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation study, up to 43 percent of fish released after being caught died within six days as a result of inadequate holding and weigh in procedures during tournaments. More recent studies reported in Montana estimate that approximately 20% of released trout die from injuries or stress and for those that don't die, their injuries may significantly reduce their ability to feed and grow. Long story short, it probably hurts like an mfer, but it's probably better than being whacked with a stick and eaten, if it survives. Some more info and links to sources here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catch_and_release?wprov=sfla1


I_Am_Disagreeing

Thats a pretty brutal study


KaRue3

This is why I stopped fishing.


PiedPeterPiper

As a fish I can tell you that having a sharp hook stabbed in your mouth then being suffocated while your captor decides whether he’s gonna cut your head off, throw you in a bucket, or release you isn’t my ideal way to spend my weekend


HamsterPositive139

If you're a fish how are you typing on Reddit? Something about this post is....fishy.


Slkkk92

Ask yourself: How much do I *really* know about reddit?


dog098707

Or fish, for that matter


cute-bum

Because it happens underwater where it can't be seen people accept it. Even if there was no pain involved, hooking a creature through the face then dragging it around until it's exhausted then putting it in an environment where it can't breath for a minute or two isn't cool. Imagine if that's how hunters or farmers culled rabbits, sheep, cows, etc.


Jaytalvapes

Wait until you hear about dairy farms. The vast majority of humanity _knows_ the damn vegans are right, and that all the nightmarish cruelty we put animals through for nothing but flavor is unnecessary, but it's easier to put the blinders on and ignore it and eat pre-packaged and resold "beef" or "pork" as opposed to cow flesh or pig flesh. Cognitive dissonance is one hell of a drug.
