Thank you both! I am paralyzed from chest level down with almost no abdominal strength, on pretty light inshore gear it was very tough.

Cool, cool beans Konajon!

....so happy for you my friend!

I'm not sure if this is still legal but we once 

could snag a bunker and just let it drop for WSB 

to pick it off.  Essentially it cuts out the middle man (circle hook) 

and you can fish more efficiently.....just don't let the bass swallow the

snap hook. 

....my bad if it's not legal anymore.

Not legal if you want to keep a fish, since bass caught on baited non-circle hooks have to be returned...

 

Not ethical if you want to protect them.  The risk of gut hooking is higher with the bunker snag...

Fantastic catch!  Thank you for sharing that, and thank you for wearing a life vest!  A great reminder to all of us!
