Morning all.

Yesterday we culled some Wriggleswade fish (report to follow in another existing relevant thread) and one of the small fish had this creature type bait in it's stomach plus about 6cm of line on a 2'O hook. The point of the hook exited the stomach cavity and was sitting quite happily in the body cavity with no seemed ill effects on the fish, yet, although the bait seems as if it's been there a while. This fish ate again obviously as it was caught again and she still had mature eggs and hadn't thus spawned!

As I have mentioned on other threads. We do more damage than we think.
A small fish with broken line and hook in stomach. I think it happens more often than we think.
And I do not know the answer to the problem. It does not matter how heavy you fish you will be smashed at some time and thus hooks will be swallowed.
I have been smashed with 30lb maxima ultra green and all of us have been smashed on 10lb line. So if someone can give me a solve for this problem please let me know. I would love to learn more.

I would think avoiding stainless steel, nickel and chrome plated hooks would be a good start. Hooks would corrode over time. I was broken off by a fish while using Grip ff hooks (bronze). Caught the same fish 2 weeks later and recovered the fly which was well on it's way to disappearing due to rust. Fish seemed fine. I know trout have pretty powerful stomach acids and can only assume bass have too. I also de-barb my hooks.

The only way to prevent damage or injury to fish is not to fish at all. :blue-doubt:

Quite right Ninja, this is a blood sport whether you like it or not! Realism is a mandatory requirement.......
