Watch "Great Hook Removal Technique - ANGLER BURIES HOOK IN HAND" on YouTube
does a 9# halibut hook count, or a 10 spratly , Hand and eye brow respectively,
Got a small mosquito larvae fly right in my eyelid one time. Like it went in balls deep in between my eyelashes. Doc at the hospital emergency room couldn’t believe it didn’t poke through either side.
I was fishing alone and it was a 20 mile drive to closest hospital emergency room. All I could think about was what I was going to tell my then girlfriend/now wife. I have a history of ending up in strange hospitals when I work/fish/play by myself and am away from home. Lol
Ouch. I Don't think the video method would have helped you. Lol
Cut lots of #15 halibut j hooks out of my deck hands and myself back in the day. My doctor taught me how to put in stitches and it came in handy
Hugged a small hali to settle it down some years ago, it immediately stuck me in the gut with the second 10/0 J hook causing instant yelling at the GF. She quickly cut the line between hooks, I then pushed hook thru and out, cut of barbed end and removed remainder. She was more freaked than I. Do still have the trophy scare, although its harder to see these days.
Seen guys on TV deliberately bury hook in hand to show removal, that's "brave"?. Loop of line and a good tug while pressing on eye seams to work best, but only in non serious fat parts of body.
Gaffed a 40 lb Halibut but I didn’t see one of the hooks was dangling. It started flipping around on the deck and drove the said hook into my calf. It kinda hurt when it was jumping with the hook in my leg. The 80 lb leader finally broke, to my relief.
That looks sick. Hope you bonked and eat the hali? Ha ha A cut the hook and remove or med attention?
I beat his head in so bad the cheeks were worthless, lol.
Had to use bolt cutters to cut it off
So you’re saying your more than 80 pounds. LOL. Seen that one on another post I think. Still looks like it might sting a little. Hope you got a good tip on that trip.
Good technique right there, lucky he didn’t get a tendon like that girl on Alone.
When I was a kid fly fishing on the Simlikameen river a guy from the farm on the other side of the river drove his ATV across the river to show me how to cast better. I’m like ok here ya go. First flick back he gets a mosquito through his eyelid. Ummm here’s your rod back kid... ok thanks thanks for the valuable lesson guy
Hahaha that wasn’t me.
I had a jig hook embedded in my hand a few years back in a similar position. Took the jig body off and was going to do this technique. I chickened out because my first thought was "what if the barb catches on something important? Ooops!" So instead I opted to ice the area really good and long, cut off the embedded prong as long as I could and then puncture through the meat & skin and pull it out by the point. This wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Skin is pretty tough material and there are a lot of nerve areas. It was a dull, painful way to do it, but it got done after a while. I was by myself, so it had to be done. Lesson learned. Ha.
