On occasion caught Bass are quite compliant in the hand, seemingly willing to hang out for s short bit while you capture their mug. Such was the case with this chap who barely moved at all once in hand. Kinda made me wonder what he was thinking… will he let me go, should I blink, look away, play dead, fake a hear attack… or just smile knowing I’ll soon be back swimming with my mates?

Fret not friends, no actual curling was performed and “Pete” was released seconds later.
