Jim you are confused, way confused. I know you can "FOUL HOOK" a fish with any gear. I have seen fish get foul hooked on my personal favorite, a jig, but more times than any other method out there, is your favorite: corky/yarn. You just don't see many fish coming in sideways or backwards when guys are fishing hardware, sorry bud, but you just don't. It's the whole corky and yarn set up where you see it happen and I see it all the time.
Jim you said you can floss with hardware. I say no. Well, I have heard you can floss with a small dick nite but what you are describing Jim is SNAGGING. That's the difference.
My personal opinion is I am about 95% sure the fish I have caught using a corky/yarn have all been lined/flossed. I am still on the fence about glowflossing because most of the fish were hooked on the tongue or in the upper mouth. But then I gotta believe it's because of the rods I use so I can feel when a fish has my line in it's mouth. And I set the hook hard.
But really what it boils down to is if the fish is hooked legally, then what can you do? I just am confused by your comment when you say you can floss with hardware. Not sure about you, but the spoons I use are about 6 bucks a pop. With that money, I'll let you buy me a beer and call it good. Deal? Or maybe my boy b253 can join us too.
