catch and release fishing on lake O in Open Lake Discussion Posted April 23, 2012 Hey Ray, I still think that long handled hook remover you need for circle hooks down in FLA would work if you modified it for a treble. Reach down over the side , hook the shank, push pull, see ya later. Don't even take them out of the water .Maybe I'll attempt to make one. Question. Is it really true that dead salmon sink? Is there any factual evidence of that? I think someone asked a question like that some time ago on here, can't remember who it was.
