Great Tip on Unhooking Gut-Hooked Bass

Post by the_doctor »

Well, it is that time of year again: SENKO TIME. Unfortunately this usually means a few gut hooked bass, even from the most careful anglers who watch their lines closely.
After gut-hooking one yesterday I decided there must be a better way than just cutting the line or ripping it out. I found this great tip and I just had to share it because I think it will save many bass' lives this year if word gets around! Really wish I knew this before. Try it out!!! I am starting to crush the barb when fishing CPR for bass, too.
