How do you "swimming the Fish"?
Head first, like you would do to revive him? or tail first with a rope around the tail?
How do you secure the fish to make sure he does not get away accidentally?

Thanks mdees88. I do cinch down hard (before I trim), but I like your door knob idea. Like you I almost never tie an FG on the boat. Just switch out rods when the bite is on.
