Minor surgery performed today
« on: August 10, 2018, 06:20:57 PM »

My fishing buddy got hooked today.  He caught a little bass about 12" long on a crankbait  and it was flopping around while he was trying to get the hook out and he got the other treble hook in his hand.  The fish was hooked on the front hook and was still hooked when he got the trailer hook in his hand.  When he got hooked of course he says "ouch" and lets go of the fish which drives the hook deeper.  Now he's hooked and the fish is hooked too.  What to do first get the hook out of him or the fish.  He tries to get the hook out of his hand and realizes it's in below the barb and it aint going be a pretty picture. Meanwhile the fish is flopping around driving the hook deeper.   I ask him if he needs help and he says "What do you think"  "I say OK let me get my surgical tools out".  He says "What the hell you going do"?  I say "I'm going to help you get the hook out of your hand and fish, or I can take you to emergency room.  Now he says "I'm not going to emergency room".
So to make matters look good I get out a needle nose pliers, a side cutter, some forceps and a knife.  The expression on his face was hilarious.  He says "Do we really need all that"?   Mean while he's still holding the fish in his right hand while being hooked in his left hand. 
I get the fish unhooked and cut the line off the lure.  I take the needle nose  pliers and bring the hook through and clip the barb off and he pulls the hook out.  I say "See that wasn't so bad was it"?  Of course his response is "Not for you, but did you have to get all that stuff out.  That sure didn't help any".
I don't know what a guy would do if he got in that situation when he was by himself.

Lol, I would have loved to see his face when you pulled out the operating tools.

I do fish alone most of the time, and this is one of the reasons I don't like to use baits with treble hooks so often.

Ouch!! Similar situation happened to me with a small bass and rapala lure. Long story short, an emergency room visit was needed.

Ouch and the same thing happened to Mike and he got it on video . ;D So far I've been lucky  ~sweat but then again I don't fish with to many baits with treble hooks on them.

If it was over 7 lbs I'd cut my hand off at the wrist and throw the whole mess in the live well.   ~roflmao

Someone I knew got hooked recently. I had a pair of needle nose pliers with cutters. A quick push through the skin and it snapped through. you could hear the barb snap or make a noise as it came through the skin. In a few seconds the barb was cut off and it was removed. No blood and he said no pain.

Back to fishing!

Your example is the reason I use a Boga Grip when fishing cranks and top water baits. I bought one the first time I saw it. I haven't been stuck since.
The worst stick I've seen was watching the filming of a fishing video. The cameraman had turned around to check some gear as the angler retrieved his lure from a bush. The angler jerked the lure from the bush and it smacked the cameraman right in the butt. That ended filming for the day.

I've done it by myself, not a lot of fun, I've bent the barb flat when the cutters wouldn't do the job.

I carry a pair of compound diagonal cutters just for this purpose.  Some hooks are really tough and the compound cutters get it done.

Saw this video on Facebook and thought this a relevant place to share it.

That's some pain tolerance right there. I have a dangerously high pain tolerance myself, but I might would have shed a tear or two.
At the very least, I'd've been cussing up a storm.

Oh believe me he was cussing.  He's not one to keep his thoughts to himself and he was pretty vocal.

I don't think that was his first time.  Sure seemed calm.

He kept it clean on the video...
Or whoever made the video cleaned it up!

I saw an edited video of myself once giving a class on the M249 Light MG ("light" is relative, depends on how far you carry it).
It made me sound like R2-D2.
