RE:Catch & Release Mortality

I'm not sure about the percentage but I recall reading something about plugs with multiple hooks (like several trebles). In this case the mortality rate due to damage to gills, etc, was minimal, I think, due to the fact that these trebles generally hooked the fish on the roof or lower jaw, hardly ever penetrating further. I mean, it'd be a miracle to get that many points and barbs passed the mouth and external areas without any of them hooking up.
