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.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

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.
