Hook in the middle finger!?!?

Recommended Posts

Hey just pulled off a masterfull hook-set on myself this evening mad.gif Yup...had a smallie on the front treble...then the squirm frown.gifwich put the rear treble in my middle finger with a 3lb fish hanging and wiggling. Yes, it hit the bone and a solid tear came down. I suprised myself...not too much swearing. Pulling it out with the leatherman was almost as bad as the initial event. Well, I guess today the fish kicked my...we have to let 'em win sometimes confused.gif.

Please, someone else bail me out and share in my pain/embarassment by posting your worse self inflicted fishing pain grin.gif

How embarrassing!

I had a 25 lb musky hanging from my index finger connected to a Rattlin Rogue on my right hand. Thankfully the the ski broke loose when he went ballistic.

Another plus was it was a cold rainy night on Mille Lacs. So my fingers were a bit numb to begin with. The hook pulled out in much the same manner as yours without too much additional pain and I continued fishing through the night. smile.gif

A little 3 lber.... wink.gif

I also had a bad expierence with a hook in the hand from a bigger northern. I was suprised how easy it was to push the hook through my palm and cut the barb off.

Those darn northerns sure jump around and shake alot.

I was fishing the Skunk River near Pierz for pike when I was in high school. We would walk the river for about 3-4 miles and hit every hole there was. My buddy casted his spoon into a brush pile across the river. In the process of dislodging it from the brush pile, the spoon shot straight at my face. It was like watching an old horror movie and the arrow is coming straight at your head. Two hooks from the treble lodged just under my chin. My buddy had to use his finger nails to cut the skin to get the hooks out. The slap from the spoon kind of numbed the area so it really didn't hurt that bad but it left a nice scar.

WOW! Thanks for the stories. I feel kinda fortunate now laugh.gif I mean a spoon to the chin or a muskie/pike dangling would be much worse!

as a 15 year old I was fishing from a canoe with my mom and my younger brother on Lake Sagatagan in Collegeville. We were casting jitterbugs in the evening and I think I scored on like my 3rd cast. Got the bass in (prolly a 2 lber) and was taking it off when it thrashed and stuck me in the middle finger of my left hand.

The hook stuck straight in and I think was pretty close to the bone... the hook was not small either. A guy was fishing from his johnboat with his two kids and he offered to get it out with his needlenose. I remember his two young kids failing to hold onto the gunwale of our boat as he cursed that I had the "toughest skin he had ever seen"...he eventually gave up and we went to the emergency room. A few hours later the ER doc shot it up with some novacaine and pulled it through, cut off the barb, and slid it out. The cut healed within a week and now I am a lot more careful when removing the hook from a fish!

My goal is to never get hooked in the eye!

Stick in Mud

I took a zara spook in the right eyebrow when it pulled loose off a smallie. Unfortunately, I was about a two-hour wade from my car, so I had to stumble over a mile or more of rocks with the spook dangling over my eye. I've had more fun wading the mighty Sauk.

wow all these stories of pain makes the 3lb bass not so bad...jk I was there and ouch....but i wish i had a good pain story to tell but i have been sort of careful except for the day we tipped the canoe. but it was too clod and the pain had subsided from swimming in the cold water to shore. so i gave it a good jerk in the cold water and out it came...guess the thought of my friend and the gear were more important than the pain at that time.....the tippy canoe is a whole other story

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
