This is a really old method for putting some fish on the table when you have no tools and are in a survival situation. Gorge hooks can be made from thorns or whittled from wood. They will generally only catch larger fish because of the mechanics of how the hook works. It doesn't catch in the mouth like a traditional hook, but when a larger fish grabs it and begins to swallow it. The upright thorn that is hidden in the bait will turn sideways in its throat. The thorns lodges in the throat and the fish cannot get away. This is a neat little trick for fishing when you have nothing! Post any videos or tips you have for primitive fishing techniques!

I've read about these for years,but never tried to fish w/ one. I have been thinking about it though for a few weeks. I'm going to give it a try soon. I'd likeTP to hear some peoples experiences as well.

Never managed to ever catch a fish with one. I can catch a meal of sunfish in about 5 hours just with my hands in one of our ponds though. stick your hands in the water, the bream come up and start nibbling on your fingers...
