I watched a buddy catch a rock bass that had half of a wide gap hook coming out its bung hole. our best guess is that the fish swallowed a hook or part of a hook and it passed through the system. crazy

have caught a couple like this

alot of times you can come in behind the gills and turn the hook around in the fishes mouth, with the hook bend facing you, often the hook will come out with minimal damage to the fish, other than that i cut the hook as close to the throat as possiable, ive caught a ton of fish over the years with hooks in em, or line comin out thier rear ends.Keep stay alive or please release me in your boat, if a fish is bleeding put it directly on the spot or put fish and chemicals in your live well, this often peps up the fish and stops the bleeding. When the fish acts like its ready release it, if not eat it.
