I have a question and PLEASE do not take this the wrong way....

What is the protocol for catching a red that big on the pier? It's obviously over-slot....do you just chunk it back in or take it down to the water and release it? How do you land a fish that big on the pier? Do you drag it up on the beach or do you try and reel it up?

Drop nets to get her up. Release head first in deep enough water to release. The whole process should only take a min or two at most if done properly

Pier net, unhook, photo, ease the net back into the water and let the waves caress the fish until he swims out. Is how I do it. Never caught one that big on a pier but would do it the same way.
