Perfect grip

Swedish Sören Essebo demonstrates a perfect gill-to-jaw-grip on a decent pike. Notice how his fingertips are just inside the gill lid and not too deep.

I have read a lot about not handling pike through the gills as them and Muskee use these differently then other fish. Handling these fish like this greatly reduces that chances of survival upon release.
