Today at about 4pm at the peak of low tide I went down to my local beach. The water has been a mess recently, lots of loose eelgrass and kelp from the larger swells and wind. I fished a weedless swimbait for about 45 minutes and had enough of the kelp, it wasn't working so I switched over to the typical sand worm carolina rig and was still getting heavy salad but it was a little better. The waves weren't too big 1-2 ft and the wind was under 10 mph. I pulled in a 9-10" bsp which was hooked deep but I pulled it out quickly but very gently and got him back in the water within 30 sec and he swam off strong. The next fish I got my PB 13.5" bsp soon after and went for a quick CPR, I didn't have him out of the water long at all probably 20-40 seconds took the picture and went to release him but wasn't strong enough, I tried to revive him for a few minutes but he couldn't make it, so I decided I would leave at that moment and get home quickly so I wouldn't waste him. This perch wasn't pregnant luckily and I checked the stomach, all super tough crab shells(I know what I'm using for bait next time.) It was a descent couple of hours but was saddened I couldn't revive the fish.
