Hey all, hope you are well, took a little break from the forums to spend time with family on holiday. Anyways whilst I was out on holiday I had the chance to fish a lake for a few hours. After landing a few fish I noticed that I wasn't hooking the fish directly in the mouth, rather near there throat which I was very scared about. I managed to unhook most of the fish with that issue but a few I had to cut the line because it was too far into the fish's mouth. I was striking fine (note this was with a float and a 6 inch hooklink with maggots). I eventually changed to a 4 inch hooklink with a 6 mil pellet and that sorted out the weird hooking issue. What does anyone think about the unusual hooking that happened? Was it my hooklink? Or was it me simply not striking well enough? Any thoughts greatly apprecaited.
