Thanks guys, they are so much fun to target and fish for.

Yes, the second one, actually both of the fish hit hard and aggressive. Unfortunately the one in the second picture did take a deep hook. The hook (single hook on spinner bait) popped out with no problems but the damage was done during the fight. I questioned posting the picture because of the blood but the reality is that it happens on occasion. The fish did not need any reviving, it kicked out of my hands as soon as itís nose touched the water. I feel pretty confident that it was likely OK and survived despite the damage.

thats good to hear. ya it does happen, sometimes they take the lures deep.

I often find myself cutting the hooks instead of trying to rip them out to try and minimize the damage.

Good stuff

Jake Trout, I read alot of articles on fishing as do most other members of our forum and I think all would agree that stress imposed on the fish due to prolonged landing time, improper handling and release techniques contribute to higher fish mortality than hooking location. It is obvious that you have a strong sense of conservation so don't sweat it.
