This is not a wise thing to do. What are you going to do if it's a short fish that you must release? Throw it 30 feet back into the water? It won't survive that. Even if you use a bridge net to lower it back down, there's no way to make sure that it is revived enough before being released as it will surely be very stressed after that ordeal. I'll not fish from a place that I cannot physically reach the water to properly release a fish.
