Let's hear opinions. Should fish you catch on Forward Facing Sonar have at least 1 hook inside the mouth? In tournaments

I'd keep consistency with the already established tournament sight fishing rules

Why would this even come up? how many times do you catch a crankbait fish in the top of the head instead of the mouth? Fish swipe at baits and arn't always hooked in the mouth. Unless you are purposely trying to snag a fish then it's a non-issue

This is why it is coming up. Not looking at a fish and it swipes at ur bait is one thing. Throwing a a rig with multiple hooks or a jerkbait with three trebles. When a fish is right on ur bait who says someone doesn't set the hook into a fish purposely or by accident.
Just asking opinions!

Well if it's by accident then it's not on purpose. Anyone that has fishes has accidently done it. Tournament fishing already has rules in place for bed fishing. (now that its edited for tournament fishing)

The rules are for "sight fishing" not bed fishing. That's where it gets murky

Guess it all comes down to "Ethics" Just like in golf. Too bad it's a dying thing.

IMHO one hook in the mouth is a good rule.

FFS is not site fishing as much as people want it to be, 60 feet in front of you is not at all the same as 16 feet. not even discussion worthy

How is it not when I can I can see the position of the fish in relation to my lure and see every reaction the fish makes?

Its very simple you cannot see that it has it, you just feel it.

Really not that simple. I have seen videos of guys ripping an a-rig and also on live where guys jerk bc they saw the fish go towards a bait and say i need to quit jerking like that till I feel them.

So, I guess if you drop a spoon in 60 feet of water into a school of fish you can see on your 2d sonar they had better be hooked in the mouth as well....

Yes it is that simple, we don't need a new livescope rule in tournaments because of a few scumbags. That would fall into the intentional snagging rule that is already in place.

I mostly catch livescope fish with a topwater , they are not always hooked "inside" the mouth. Same for the jerkbait crowd , just because you see em on a screen doesn't mean a snag is intentional.

Your A rig snaggers are "intentionally" snagging there is already a rule for that.
