When the big hogs come in thick fish sometimes end up getting snagged (any method can end up snagging fish). If you have a fish that you is snagged (its not hard to tell if you have ever caught a salmon) is its life worth your 1.00 or 2.00 setup? By dragging in a fish that is snagged you put entirely too much stress on it and can end up killing it.. Also it is discourteous to your fellow fishermen to hog up a hole fighting a snagged fish. That being said, let the fun begin. Just do the ethically right thing. fighting fish is fun, fighting snagged fish is wrong.
