    This is the ca. State pic. There is no white horizontal stripe, on my picture?
    Probably just a variation....

    So, the popped-out eye thing versus the reference images, is that that an effect of no longer being under water pressure at depth, or what's going on with that?

    Eye popping is result of pulling the fish up too fast from deep under or barotrauma, same as DCS. It's still very much alive, but the swim bladder has blown up. Depending whether they can still swim, straight tossing the fish over might save it or kill it. Line lower them back with a inverted milk crate or fish descender device will be best chance for survival. Kills on time fishing, but preserves the stock.

    For a while I was trying to find bits and pieces to make a fold-able, collapsible inverted "milk-crate" type of contraption. Fishing from a kayak requires lightweight and least amount space needed for more stuff. Never did come up with anything - probably because I didn't find the right parts, and really don't catch much fish anyway - so what's the point.

    old_rookie .. piece of rebar, wire a hook on upside down and clip the point off, store in a ziplock bag. Just wrap 80 feet of line around the thing and you're set

    If I know I will be fishing deep I made a similar rig and use it as the sinker . You can just desend the fish back down on the next drop about half way down give it a jerk and back to fishing . A Shelton release works in line with a ganion but its sharp and will get you if not careful . As others have said good for the resource , required by law in some states . Cheers !
