Stand-Up Angling Techniques
The great debate: stand-up harness fishing versus the traditional fighting chair. The best method to fight and release/land pelagic gamefish continues to be just one of the several issues argued in the big-game fishing community.
Amid the evolution of a decades-long offshore-fishing career of learning, adapting and continually improving, I’m convinced that with the proper knowledge, preparation, training and techniques, stand-up fishing will ultimately provide superior fishing results and enjoyment to that of using a stationary fighting chair. Why? Because I’ve done both.
