Do bass Guides hook fish and then hand-off rod to customers? Just wondering if that is a common practice.

Only if they ask. I haven't had a client ever ask but maybe another guide has. I would say this not a common practice unless they have children on board and they are assisting the parents with taking off fish or catching.

I had an 6 hour skunk trip onetime with a popular guide on Fork. As we were heading into the dock, he hooked a 4lber the first action of any sort we had seen all day. He passed the rod my direction, I was stunned and tried to refuse, but in the confusion he was able to force my hands closed around the rod. Much to my embarrassment I reeled the fish in. I still carry the shame with me to this day.

Even my 7 year old won't take a fish caught that way, it would be shameful to accept the rod.

Agreed. It just all happened so fast. A lesser man would probably have to see a therapist about it.

I do not and never would cause that is not teaching you the customer to catch fish. I have seen it and heard about it all my life here. Not right in my opinion.

Had a Striper guide do it once. It was the only fish either of us hooked all day. I didn't mind.

Only been a guide for 30+ years, so don't know for sure.
In my case, NO.

I'm not a guide, but tried this with my grandson when he was old enough to hold the rod. To this day he will say PawPaw caught the fish and I reeled it in. I would say this is justification that he needs to "catch and reel" in his own fish. fish

I don't set the hook, but I have been known to be fishing a soft plastic of some kind and suddenly request a kid to hold my rod and they usually hook up extremely quick. Weird huh?

I've never experienced it. It wouldn't make a poor day good IMO. Most guides say they don't fish with you unless you want them too.

You said it man. I'd much rather zero than reel in another mans fish.
