    does this happen to anyone when they use kahles?I tend to hook the cats threw the mouth and it sticks threw one eye alot,not all the time mind you but alot.The last several ive caught have been that way,some of them have been non keepers and i hate to do that if im going to release them.I guess it happens.

    It does happen unfortunately and it also happens with circles.Try and remove it gently with as little damge as possible.The alternative is for the hook to be in the guts so perhaps the alternative is better.Catfish have such extraordinary sensors that they dont depend to much on vision.Don't feel bad about it again the alternative is worse.
