Fish Swallowed Hook
Fish will sometimes swallow soft plastic baits before you can feel their bite on your line. When that happens, your hook set can catch deep in the fish’s throat or gut.
Leaving the hook buried inside can harm the fish. Most hooks do not decay and will remain inside the fish forever. The hook will also prevent the fish from being able to swallow food properly.
The technique demonstrated by Lake Fork Guy in this video is an effective way to remove the hook and keep the fish alive. Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments below.
