    Default Hook in the toe

    So I am upgrading the hooks on my wiggle warts and my wifey desides she is going to walk over my little project even though I give her plenty of warning not to.

    Dor gets a hook in the toe past the barb. I tried to get it out by hand but it would not budge.

    I decided to pull it out with the old string trick which I saw once on a video a couple years ago.

    I took the rear hook off the lure in case Dor moved while I took the other hook out so she would not get double wammied. That hurt a bit as I was wiggling the lure around a bit at first. This is what caused the foul language. I was so mad that she walked right through my area that I had been changing hooks in for over an hour.

    The string trick worked beautifully.

    Done that to my hand and by far the worst pain I have ever experienced. Felt dizzy and started to sweat when the pushed the hook all the way throught the skin to clip the barb

    Got a 6.0 hook buried in my face a few years back while at Pony Cove. Fished the rest of the day (silvers were in!) and had to go to the hospital that night to have the hook cut out.

    Even though she stepped into an area where she shouldn't have, you know of course that it's your fault that she hooked herself don't you??? Just ask her

    I had a that happen to me years ago while fishing the Kasilof. It was the night bait went legal. We were out there doing our thing. I leaned my rod on the bank and went to rebait my hook. At that time someone else with his dog was walking up the trail. His dog was running ahead of him (not on a leash) It was dark around 2 am or so. I didnt hear or see the dog untill after his legs got cought up in my line and draged the rod about 20 yards up the trail. Well that king hook got set in my finger past the barb. There I was running to catch up with the dog as he was dragging me with him. Its all good these days. Now its a good storie to tell while fishing. It hurt a little. It was really cold and my hands were numb so that helped. LOL. Had to push it through the other side to clip the barb. That hurt a little too LOL! The next morning was a little more painfull. Though it didn't stop my weekend of fishing. The guy felt really bad. I was upset buy still managed to be polite about it. He took me back to his camp and broke out the 1st aid kit. These days I don't fish around dogs running around with out a leash LOL!

    Next time you are out fishing with her I would quietly tie that lure to her line to see if she notices

    BTW, bummer for the wifey and gnarly pic!

    We had a safety meeting at work and were shown some pictures of why you should wear glasses while fishing.

    WEAR THOSE GLASSES!!!!!

    I took a 3/4 oz Pixie to the head a few years ago and the treble went through my hat and buried in my scalp flush to my skull. I sucked down a 1/2 a fifth of Captain Morgan and my buddy tried the string trick and pliers to no avail. It took a shot of anestetic and a big pair of pliers to get it out. I gave the ER some good laughs that night.

    Default Hook in hand

    Here are a couple of pictures of a Kwik-Fish that I got stuck in my hand this past week while fishing at the little-su. It was stuck in there really good, I couldn't bring myself to let my buddy try to pull it out. So I went to the ER. The only thing worse than having two legs of a treble hook in your palm, is having a 30 lb King on the other side still flopping around.

    It sure didn't feel good, but at least I still got some salmon the Grill!!

    Yeah, I admit I have to scroll past that picture fairly quickly as well.

    Catch and release works well everywhere, you just release half of your stuff also...
