Yes, I kind of agree if indeed it is actually an out of join jaw as opposed to something broken or torn. I mentioned to Greg also off list that, that would be my thought if I were sure the previous statement wasn't true. This way next time if it doesn't work this time at least you have had a learning experience with the fish. And I always look at the fry and think they are here to carry on where Mom left off.
