My dad has a tool for deep mouth hook ups, which is a long stick that you guide into the fishes mouth along the line, it just guides itself, when at the hook, you push a bit more and the hook comes out and hooks itself into the tool,, very smart and efficient.

I hate using spreaders and someone had posted a type on here that I'd like to get that dont go thru the mouth.

we used to have a file that was like a tiny ring of whet stone/file (for smaller hooks), that you feed the hook into, turn a couple of times and it not only debarbs but sharpens the hook.

And finally, there were these hooks that I got on the coast where they were more like a really small and sharp shovel as opposed to a needle point hook, they would set really easy and came out as easily.

When I get home I'll take a picture of the quick release tool and post it, it's great for dinker trout and newbies who don't want to throat cut or gill cut when they want to release their fish. We've also changed from trebles to long shank single hooks when bait fishing for lunkers, as they bury nice in the bait and are a breeze at removing.

I could do without an island nice bar and no beach.
As long as I can fish all day long and hove some bar - I am good.

My personal conclusion for the barbless / barbed issue is:

1. Nobody has any reliable hard data if it has any impact.
2. Yet everybody has his own (the most right) opinion
3. People will never get along
4. Last and the most important - the law may be stupid, but it is the law.
I'm pinching.

I stand by fishing and a bar. Since I am happily married for quite some time now - fishing and a bar is what I need. And after several years in Houston I don't care for tan and prefer ice fishing and colder is better. The rest of the abbreviations and terms I didn't get, but English is my second language.

I was waiting for a bite on that one. We could probably set up a 6 -12 month contract. You should be able to complete all pinching in 12 months.

Seriously though, it shouldnt take longer than 9 months.

About one month ago I boated two 10.5 lb walleyes, and numerous smaller, using a Superlite PT and PT Energy10 spincaster, borrowed from and set up for a right hander,
9' X 6lb fluro leader and barbless size 12 hook and leech. Never "Lindy rigged" before. Worked so well I bought that combination later that night! Set it up for a lefty.

A #12 hook is tiny and the law provided for the barbless look because of the slot size mandated by the regulations.

No one can tell me that barbless hooks lose fish. During the two days of the Vanity Cup nearly 2 tons of fish were weighed and released. Probably close to that weight in slot sized fish that never got weighed. All on barbless hooks! Never mind how many were landed in the five days of pre-fishing. Our boat alone handled 30 or 50 walleyes.

Having said that, all of my lures and hooks get the pinch treatment before it goes into the box. I replace most of the trebles with either single barbless or with red triple grip trebles, again barbless. Bulk hooks get pinched before they get snelled. Never sweat it when the F&W shows up. In any jurisdiction.

I also recall (70's?80's?) that PantherMartin was including a single barbless hook in their packaging for the spinners. You could change them out if you happened to be going to B.C. to fish. Alberta and to some extent Saskatchewan (c&r fisheries) are now barbless also, and I rarely see barbless hooks for sale anymore.
