    I went out fishin last night, and had one of the most painful things happen ta me that's every happened ta me before. I had bites on two different rods, and luckily, I managed ta get em both in. They were both small bullheads, and as I bent over ta get the hook out of one's mouth, It extended it's fins and one went UNDERNEATH my thumbnail. :crazy: CcCcccCRrrraaaAppPp! After getting the fin out from underneath my nail, I dropped my knees ta the ground and LANDED ON THE TOP FIN OF THE OTHER BULLHEAD! I had ta get the pliers ta get it out of my knee, and ta say the least I'm still hurtin today. :tounge_out:

    Now that's gotta hurt! Be sure to keep an eye on those wounds. My neighbor had a small piece of fin left underneath a fingernail once and winded up having surgery over the infection. He almost waited too late to save the finger.

    First mistake was trying to take them off the hook...that is the best bait you can come across! just kidding, that stinks. I know the feeling just from handling them for bait but under the fingernail would be enough to make a grown man cry!

    well sounds painful but when you get finned rub the belly of the fish over it and it will take most if not all the pain away. them darn bull heads are nasty bout finning ya like the harder you try not to get finned the more thell get ya. well i feel your pain and hope you get better.

    That stinks!!!! Man, I feel for ya that has to be painful in both places. Make darn sure the fin didn't break off in your skin, and watch for infection just like the other guys have said.

    When I was a kid, I saw a guy step on a catfish & have the dorsal fin go completely through his sandal and into his foot. I always remembered that sight. I met that guy a few weeks ago. Weird weird weird. It's been probably 28 or 29 years since that happened, and I met the guy it happened to. He had to go to the hospital & have the fin removed.

    :crazy: That has got to hurt. I have gotten grazed by their fins on my hand once and that hurt! I can hardly imagine what it would have been like getting the fin under your nail. That was a proposed torture technique with the commies in the Vietnam War. So I can imagine the pain it must have brought.

    I've been stuck by bullheads before and it is not fun. I can only imagine how it felt going under the fingernail. OUCH!

    I must say though, your story is pretty funny!
