    I have to tell you this.... I went to a church camp for a week when I was a kid and we were fishing one day. The guy next to me sidearmed his cast and stuck a treble hook in my arm. All three hooks!! Had to go to the hospital and have it cut out. Ouch!!:crazy:

    alls you need to do is slightly pinch the skin ( make a small hill )and gentaly press the hook down and out

    painless and simple:wink:............. except for the whole thing:smile2:

    Thanks for the informitive post Dean. I would have never done it like that. Iwas taught to run hook back threw the skin and then cut hook and barb off and back it out. :0a23:

    Thanks man. Never heard of it done that away, it is always good to know of more than one way to do something in my opinion.

    This is goning to make me sound like a real dope, but once I got a two trebles stuck in my face. One in my nose and one in my upper lip. I pushed them through and pinched down the barbs and backed them out. I wasn't about to go have someone else do it, I would never live it down!!! Every fisherman should know this though should they ever need it.

    Been in that boat too, remember when I was 15 fishing bass with my ma, had both treb's on a Zara Spook (that I just bought that morning) stuck in the middle of my left hand, and YES we were in a boat with a tiller steer, LOL mom wasn't driving, to busy not passing out, went to the hospital and I was more upset that they were gonna ruin my new lure than any of it...LOL Great Advice to know!
