    Thank you, That is the most informative article on hook sets i have read. I would have never thought leaving line on the hook would make a difference one way or the other.

    Hmm, that article got me thinking, it also make's sense too. I don't know why, but bass die real easy, unlike catfish that can last about 20 minute's out of the water

    Good read. Very informative. Gives new life to how we should handle the fish we intend to release back to the waters.

    Did you see the PETA program where they gave kids binoculars and told them, "Look, dont hook." That was their fishing program. :smile2:
    If they did that to me as a kid I would have been pissed.

    " But lunker bass are so valuable that they should be immediately released, even if they are bleeding or deeply-hooked. Remove the hook if posible. Leave an 18-inch leader if you can not remove the hook. "
    I like the way they throw in the money part of it!!!! even if it might die it is so valuable just leave it & throw it back:smile2::smile2::eek:oooh:
