I wouldn't want to be in your shoes LOL. I don't really have a clue but how big is it? Would you be able to grab it behind it's head like you would a snake?

If no-one here has a good way to do it, maybe check with your local fish store to see if they have any hints about how to get him out.

Good job. I'm glad to hear it went well and you were able to net it.

Initially I was thinking you had a big old boy - thus the picking up thought.
