A matter worth mentioning as I have had a lot of pike when I have not been after pike and only have conventional forceps with me.
If your forceps are too short to go in through the mouth, go in through the gill the same way as you go in with your fingers to grip them. It is often easier to twist the hook out from the side anyway. No matter how quickly you strike some will take the bait deep very quickly, or more to the point the start of the take was not noticed. Starting off lure fishing will prevent too much deep hooking and give confidence with easy straight forward unhooking.
