today i went to my bio proff and asked about fish feeling no pain. from my understanding the nerves of a fish has are less convergent and in far less proximity than that of a mammal and so the nervous system detects changes in pressure on the fishes body. the reason fish freak out when you handle or hook them is that there is a greater pressure on one spot then the rest of the body. this tells the fish that it has been caught by something and it needs to get free. so in short fish don't feel pain they freak out because of dramatic pressure changes on their body's
my favorite barby bait is a head of a 2kg grass carp.
