All the Snake heads i ve Caught using scum frogs were deep throat hooked and the air bladders were damaged...there was no way i could keep them alive for more than 15 mins after de-hooking them and relocating them into a big tank.. they just drown as the air bladders are damaged...

I went through the posts posted earlier.. though many shared the same experience i was not able to find any solution...

I cant use spinners as the spots i fish are covered with weeds..

Is it possible to avoid deep throat hooking and air bladder damage ???

Have anyone found any other methods to avoid deep throat hooking??

Will setting of hook as soon as you see the splash make any difference ??

Only solution is to strike fast. You may miss some hookups on fish but there are less chances that you will damage the air bladder. Use braid since it transmits the strike faster than mono.

ALl of Bops suggestions. and one from me.
Break the barbs on the hooks. This will ensure minimum damage to the fish. You might lose a few but then that is C&R right.
