Obviously the best thing is to leave them in the water.

I use a C&R net which is controls the fish but lets me get to the hook.

If you are going to pick the fish up hold them upside down and they wont squirm.

Be sure to wet your hands before touching the fish so you don't remove it's slime coat.
