I notice on TV that when they reel in a bass, the hook is in the fish’s mouth while the plastic worm is sometimes 4 feet up the line. Is this due to a strong hook set or the way the worm is rigged?

Hi Steven, it’s normally due to the fishing line going through the sinker which in many cases is “screwed” into soft-plastic with a built in light wire on the bullet sinker. When a fish is hooked the hook goes through the soft-plastic and usually runs up the line still attached to the weight.,,God bless you.
