    Robert, I sure hope you cleaned it out! Keep it clean & watch for any signs of infection, swelling, pus, red streaks, or anything that seems abnormal to you. If anything like this shows get your butt to a doc. you will probably need an antibiotic.... BTW when was tour last tetanus shot? If it was more than 10 or 15 years ago, you had better go to the doc now anyway & get a booster, while you are there, have him look at your boo boo.

    My cousin told me a sad/funny storey. He was with his girlfriend one night and managed to talk her into letting him take the boat down to the lake and get it started. He promised her he wasnt going to fish, he just hadnt been in the boat for months and needed to make sure it would still start. So they got down there put it in, and it starts. So he realizes he has a few spare poles in the pole holders and puts I believe either a crank bait or rattle trap on one. After about the 3rd cast he hooks his girlfriend in the cheek. He said they cut the line, and drove home, where her brothers tortured her the whole way to the hospital.

    Oooh, that's gotta hurt! :ah:

    I did see an article in a bass fishing magazine about how to use a thread or piece of mono to remove a hook from your skin in one quick motion. It was a matter of where you apply pressure and yank the thread to pull the hook out. Apparently, the thread is looped in a way that the barb is pressed down into the incision as it comes out so that it does minimal additional damage.

    What was so neat about the technique was that you could perform the "operation" on yourself, if you had to.

    I'm sure that there are expert on the BOC who can provide the step-by-step procedure on this one!

    Someone at my aunt's house had been saltwater fishing and forgot to take of the bait. Well, her cat tried.....My dad (her brother) had to remove the hooks... not a pretty site.

    Oh I totally forgot about another storey until you said this. Same exact thing happened, my brother was fishing and left his rod against the wall. Our dog knocked it over and grabbed a rattle trap. Talk about problems. I wasnt there at the time, thank god or I'd probably had problems. My dad said he had to use needle nose pliers to remove 3 barbs frim her lip.

    An older buddy of mine got a big hook stuck deep in his hand. Our other buddy saw that and said "Let's get back to shore, looks like we'll have to take a trip to the hospital." his response: "No we're not, give me those pliers!" He promptly grabbed the hook, loosened it some, then pushed it FARTHER into him until it looped around and the barb came back out the skin. He then cut the barb off and threaded the hook out. That's gotta hurt, but not as bad as pulling the barb back through the hole.

    In reply to Jeremiads post what you do to get the hook out is you put like a 30 40 lb line in the circle of the hook you push down on the eye of the hook while pulling on the line all in one motion I have been doing it for years the barb will come out the same way it went in now if its stuck in the ear cut the eye of push it on through:that_hurt: :006:

    Thanks, Ed!

    I thought that was what I read, but I never have had to try it yet.

    By wrapping the thread through the bend of the hook, as you pull, the thread tends to turn the hook so that pressure is removed from the barb as it comes out. They say that, if you do it right, you remove it so quickly that you don't feel a thing. If so, this sure beats trying to cut the barb and shank off! :eek:oooh:

    And if you have no 30 to 40 pound fishing line then your back to cutting the barb off
