I have a question about fish mortality. I have been barfishing for a long time. And I have ALWAYS tipped my hooks with roe or some kind of bait. I deep hook alot of the fish I catch. If I removed the bait would the deep hook ratio go down?

Well I fish artificals i little more then I do bait, and I can say Iv never seen a fish swallow the artificals. But I have hooked fish with broken leaders hanging out of there mouth, and during the internal surgery I have found everytime to be a bear hook.....BAIT. But when you are still hooking fish that have 2 inch pieces of hard plastic, 8 inch worms, pens and paintballs in there stomachs and still pulling on It makes yeah wounder. ???

Just because its a bare hook doesn't mean that it was BAIT. Ive hooked many fish on artificials, land the fish, and my artificial is missing. So what does that mean? The fish ate the artificial? Or that it ripped off during the fight? If the leader breaks more than likely the artificial is gonna slide off too.
