Fish Hook in your hand
« on: Oct 31, 2019, 07:48 AM »
After seeing the post about Fishshack burying a fish hook in his hand.  I wondered how many others have buried a fish hook in their hand this season while landing a fish by hand.

After 50 or more years of fishing, I managed to bury a hood in my hand twice this year while landing a fish.  The first time I extracted the hook myself and the second time it was urgent care.  Luckily there was not a thrashing fish on the lure.

Did that with a big stick bait with a 3 lb laker hanging on it..  Once we got the fish off we  got the hook out with the string method....    ;)

Yup....6/0 mustad sand eel teaser...in the meat of my index finger right past the fingernail.  Quite painful.  Had to push the point through crush the barb and push out.  That was the most recent self hooking incident.

When I stopped by my buddy Tomís house the other night he was fiddling with something on the shoreline when I walked up. He had his glove, his hat, and a walleye all hooked to his lure. Luckily he didnít have his hand in the glove.  :rotflol:

Did something stupid one time while fly fishing surf for stripers.   Caught my back cast on some rocks 20 yards behind me.  Fishing was hot at the time so after freeing my clouser, rather than toss my line into my stripping basket as I was walking back down to the water I started a bunch of short casts.  Accidentally stepped on slack as I was commencing one backcast and had my clouser screaming back at me, burying into my ring finger (fortunately nothing else).   Since there was no brutal burning, I figured I had not hit a nerve, grabbed my pliers and gave her a good tug then placed my stripping guard over the wound to help it clot to get back at it as quickly as possible. 

Fortunately no damage other than a little blood loss - got lucky; never again, and this story will be a learning lesson for my son when he's of age.

not his year. knockonwood


me and friend were fishing under a bridge catching cats.  he tossed a bullhead up on the road and laughed as cars ran over it.  he caught another and said(famous last words) watch this man.  he kicked the bullhead to go up on the road.  it didn't go on the road though.  it stuck in the side of his shoe into his foot. lol we had to unlace his shoe and cut the horn off to remove his shoe. he hasn't kicked one since that I know of.
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to
