The one thing I want to carry is the mini bolt cutters to clip the hooks from the fish so I don't have to tear if I don't have to.

Preserve for tomorrow.

One of the best ones I found is Knipex 7" mini bolt cutters, they are not cheap but they are made out of very hard tempered steel and will cut salmon/muskie size hooks exceptionally well.....without getting dull.
I got them @ our local Lowes store in electrical tools section,(Knipex part#71 31 200)

I started to take my bards off on the lures I use for pike. I don't lose any more fish that it did with the barbs on. As long as I keep pressure on the hook I got them. It takes no time to release the fish.
Fishing is not an adventure, it's my life.
