Clumsy fisherman Posted May 20 Share Posted May 20 I caught a bass from a fishing pier while using a 4.75 inch plastic worm on a drop shot rig. When I reeled the bass in and was able to get a look at the hook, the fish wasn't hooked in the mouth, but in outside of it's face, between the eyes, somewhat closer to the right eye than the left. Has anyone had anything like that happen? The fish flopped on the pier for a few seconds, before I could get ahold of it and I can see how it might have dislodged the hook from its mouth. But if that happened, I don't see how it would have hooked itself the way it was hooked when I got to it. It was securely hooked, and it took me longer to get the hook loose than normal. I was almost ready to cut the hook before I got it out. Second, I was fishing from the bank in a different location with a wacky rig with a weedless VMC neko hook, size 1 or 1/0. I had a very strong strike and pull but the fish got away after a couple of seconds. that's not unusual for me, unfortunately. When I reeled my line in the dinger was completely gone. It had been attached to the hook crosswise with rings. Anyone else have this happen? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
