All fish bite.... some more than others.  I remember seeing one guy who was use to fresh water fish and he caught a nice 24 inch weakfish.  He decided to lip hold it.  He found out weakfish don't just bite... they fang you to death

Not that I would ever try to lip one, but I had a decent sized pike tag me once. That was a mess too.

Even lake trout have a set of sharp teeth on them. Eventually you figure out what to lip and what to avoid.

Typically this is what I would do. This one was a smaller fish with a big circle stuck in its mouth, which I was having a tough time trying to twist out to begin with. When the fish didn't want to cooperate by keeping his mouth open, I used my thumb as a wedge to pry it open. It's a dogfish, what can possibly go wrong? Now I know.

Hit some backwaters earlier this week 9-4am and got my buddy his first ever keeper bass, a 31inch fatty that hit about 15 feet off the tip of his rod. Not sure who was more pumped up, me or him.

 More small bait than I can remember with fish popping 360 degrees around us at the top of the outgoing. They were picky and had to work for them. The random bluefish chewed up the only plastics the bass liked. Ended up with 15 hefty schoolies and several blues.

Atlantic County jetty at dawn, beginning of the outgoing. One rat on the teaser, and one blue on topwater. My buddy got one nice bass. Water was flat with snappers and schoolies on small bait everywhere.

MoCo 6-10.  Clean flat water, no wind, max humidity.  Stumbled on a snapper blitz just before the sun came up, got a few on a 7/8 epoxy.  Bite died soon after, started snooping around for fluke, no success.  Lot of small bait everywhere I went, Just didn’t find a lot on them.
