Brilliant! Your suppose to push the barb through then cut the hook, a lot less damaging & a lot less painful. Must have had an HMO! I know, "your not cutting the hook, that's my favorite lure, yank it out"!http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif-Mezz

Some years ago I was pike fishing a little lake north of Seney and managed to get a hook in my hand. It was straight in the large fleshy part of the palm below my thumb and after an hour of trying to get it out (poking it through my hand didnt seem like an option)I opted for the urgent care in Newberry. The funny part was the doctor that came in to work on me. He was wearing boondockers, Levis, a flannel shirt, and had a leather tool belt around his waist like Tim the tool man taylor would wear loaded with doctor stuff. He said he had one rule about removing lures and that was he got to keep them. Only in the u.p. Eh!

I was flyfishing a creek about 15 years ago, (didn't really know what I was doing)whipping that fly rod like a fly swatter. I was looking at where I wanted the fly to go and it wasn't there, then I felt the sting from that tiny hook in the top of my ear. Thing went right through the top part of my ear, it came out kind of easy cuz it was a small hook so the barb wasn't very big but it still sucked

Not so easy to just push hook thru,even a little one. especially if its close to nerves.best let a doc do it!! from experience.lol

Fishing in Canada with my dad, I had caught a small northern. I picked it up w/o a net of course and swung it to my dad who caught it. Holding it at the gills (not in the gills) the fish gave a little shake and a treble hook had hooked my dad in 2 fingers right next to each other (pointer and middle) on the underside with 2 seperate hooks. He dropped the fish which made it wiggle more while still attached to his hand. He started yelling at me to kill it ..... kill it......

I was 12 and could not for the life of me think of how to kill this northern who was stuck to my dads hand. I ended up using the oar and smashing it a few times. We cut the hooks in the boat and he pushed them through himself. He screamed like a baby and he is one normally pretty tough.

Lesson of the day was wear large leather gloves when handling northerns.....

Many areas in Canada either require or strongly encourage barbless hooks. I've been a little hesitant to pinch them down because I'd hate to lose the big one. All these stories make me start to reconsider...(plus it's better for the fish).

I see the barb on that one Ubee.

Ubee, that October 8 picture is a framer!

We always squeeze the barbs on the hooks down. Not only does it make taking the hooks out of a big old snaggle tooth monster easier, and quicker, but should the unthinkable happen, you can back the hook out much easier.

If you keep the line tight on any fish, you don't need barbs at all. We don't loose many fish that throw the hooks. Some do sissor the line occasionally, but that's what makes it fun...talking about the one that got away! They get bigger every year....or at least the talk does.

(I don't know about you, but the last photo above really makes me cringe....that's got to hurt some)

Nasty pic. See, this is why I dont fish, too dangerous. You should also stay away from hunting guns, could shoot finger off too.

pic is from my brother,he was in a bass tournament and bass was being taken off the hook and shook with the hook going in his finger.bass gave a few more extra head fakes in disapproval before getting loose.He forefited the tournament and drove 70 mi to Thunder Bay for a trip to emergency care! Got to be carefull out there!!lol
