I just noticed something in Luke, and since I am sure that I am not the first to have noticed it , I would be interested in any comment someone might care to make . In my opinion, in Luke 5:10, zogron
is a pun, meaning both taking and reviving, the phrase thus meaning either, You will take people as one takes fish in a net; and , You will raise people from the dead (e.g., Acts 9:36-40).
Okay, I see where you might be getting this:

However, the context is one of drawing a metaphorical extension from real fishing, where people catch fish all the time, so I don't think that the second meaning listed in LSJ would be triggered for any of the original hearers or readers.
BDAG lists only the first meaning as current to the NT:
