    If you can remove the hook without taking the fish out of the water it will have its best chance at survival. And when handeling a fish it is best to get your hands wet because dry hands will reomove the fishes protective slime coating, this is crucial imo.. holding a fish in a towel will probably wipe off enough slime to kill a trout. If the hook is too deep i just cut the line and im pretty sure most hooks break down and dissolve within a couple days..

    I've alway struggled with - how to keep them from flipping/moving and sliding banging against something while you are trying to to hold them to remove hook?

    and, is cutting line and releasing with hook in throat/stomach etc the best approach when hook is lodged deeper on bait? I've always done that.

    always dip your hands in the water before you handle the fish to prevent removing slime and scales.
