When I read this, the first thing came in my tiny brain was, WHATTTTTTTTTTTT???????
Then why do they struggle the very milli moment the hook gets stuck in their mouth?? Neahhhhh.
Well I did a little bit of Google and of course it proved to be true.

Scientists have discovered that fish do not feel pain as they do not have a brain system or enough sensory receptors in the nerve cells to experience suffering. Fish do not even suffer when they are hooked and fighting for their lives, according to research by an international team.
While fish may struggle to get free, scientists say this does not mean they are in pain, instead they show "little effect" from injuries and toxin that would leave humans in agony.
Researchers inserted needles into the jaws of rainbow trout.
"In spite of large injections of acid or bee venom, that would cause severe pain to a human, the trout showed remarkably little effect," Jim Rose, professor of zoology and physiology at the University of Wisconsin, who led the project, said.
Fish resumed normal activity within minutes of surgery, as well as after being caught and released back into the water.
