Decided to go run my lines by myself. Should have stayed home.... After running two lines and catching 20 cats the third line was hung on something about 15 hooks out. Started working my way out by pulling the line trying to break it free. While pulling I remembered I was not taking the hooks out as I worked my way closer to the snag. Tried to let the tention out and a hook got my forearm. DEEP! I was holding with both hands, the boat turned sideways in the current and My knife was in the tackle box. Had to let go with my free arm to hold the boat. Used my foot to kick open the box. The knife was on top so I kicked it closer to me. With a split second I let go of the boat grabbed the knife and cut the line. After drifting down river a mile or so to slow my heart down. I headed to the hospital to get hook removed. NEVER run lines in a river current without a knife on your side.
