A foul hook occurs when a fishing hook catches onto a part of the fish's body other than its mouth. This can happen accidentally, such as when a fish swims into the line or when the angler's hook snags onto the fish's body during retrieval. Foul hooking is generally not intentional and can result in injury or harm to the fish. When a fish is foul hooked, it may cause unnecessary stress or harm to the fish, and in some jurisdictions, foul hooked fish may need to be released immediately to minimize harm.
