Largemouth Bass...can’t unhook! Good afternoon all; I went fishing today and caught my first Largemouth Bass (it’s been my dream since day one). The thing is, I recently discovered that this fish has a fishing line coming out of its mouth. This can only mean that their might be a hook attached at the end of it. I try to gently pull on it, but it wasn’t coming out, and it seems to bother the Bass. At one point I got to seem inside its mouth while it was doing some deep breathing in the corner of the tank. I think I might have seen what looked like a hook, but I am not sure. Any advice on what I should do? Do you think he can live like this, or is his time limited if not removed?
