    Can you tell if a fish was flossed?

    I caught this walleye, I am wondering if I somehow flossed it. it was in the river but in a giant, slow pool. It felt like a normal take but, after looking at examples of other "flossed fish" it has me wondering. If this was flossed it would just have been amazing dumb "luck". I hope this was an honest catch. Walleye are not even in this river, seems like it likely came from a reservoir 150 miles away.

    If the hook is on the inside of the mouth it's not flossed. Generally. Who cares though. If it's hooked anywhere in the mouth it's good.

    Maybe maybe not. Who cares. Bonk, filet and grill. Great eating fish.

    I'd be more concerned about the size of that loop knot.

    agreed that knot is out of control. I had half a mind to retie it but the smallmouth did not seem to care.
