    No horse hooves were harmed in the making of this photo.

    Long-arming, certainly. Fishing solo, the only good way for me to get a picture of these large fish is to prop my cell phone on a large rock, select video, then pick the "selfie" camera...that way I can see what's on the screen as I'm taking video. In this case, I was too close to the camera initially, and stepped back on the very steep slope. Then I was too far away, so I held the fish toward the phone/camera so it nearly filled the screen. Because its all about the fish. Once I get home, then I review the video, pause it and screen capture frames that I think look best. So...that's what I do.

    For the smaller fish, I'm either holding the fish in one hand and taking a photo, or I just take a picture of the fish in the net and call it good. Once I get home, I count the number of fish caught based on the time the pictures were taken. That way I don't mis-count while I'm fishing. Most fish I don't keep count of...like bass or bluegills, etc. But some species I want to know how many I've caught.

    So, for example, by looking at the time stamps on the photos on my phone...I know that I had a really good span of 31 minutes on Saturday when I caught 8 Grass Carp and the little Channel Catfish. How fun is that?? 1 fish every 3.44 minutes on average.
    I fished for 5 hours total, so it took 4.5 hours to catch the other 10 Grassies... or 1 fish every 27 minutes. Big difference!
