But they are such an easy target! And so much fun! I'll believe fish feel
pain the same way I do when large mouth bass quit grabbing the same lure and
getting hooked on it throwing the hook and grabbing the lure again! I've had
a fish hook in my hand before, it made a believer out of me. I don't think
there would too much chance of me grabbing a tasty morsel twice if I was
hooked by a treble hook in the mouth the first time!
