    My friend, believe me when I say that fish feel nothing in the mouth, hence why they lay pretty still when landed making them pretty easy to unhook (if they have been played out especially skimmers)...

    Re: Understanding Match Fishing....or Not.

    Sorry but the last quote is incorrect? Fish do not feel pain when hooked in the mouth as they have no nerve endings on the lip (hence why most rigs are designed to hook a fish in the lip where...
