Minor surgery done while fishing

Recommended Posts

RHW

Mike and I did the finger lakes today with marginal success. I did manage to hook a huge 165 pounder, me.. Blugill came up, took a swipe but let go, the jig propelled upward at a high velocity and smack dab into one of my fingers. Buried the barb all the way in and deep. ****, now what am I going to do with the rest of the day to go with a jig implanted in my hand. I remembered a fishing video I had seen some time back about how to remove a hook from your flesh.
Grabbed a bungy cord hook, drapped it around the embedded shank, pressed down on the hook and told Mike, don't whimp out on me, on the count of three, give the cord hook a fast and good snap. He said, are you sure? I pressed down on the hook, counted to three, Mike snapped the jig cleanly from the finger. Only a couple drops of blood.
If any of you haven't seen this proceedure, best do so, cause you never know.

Boyz in the Woods

A few years ago I was fishing the middle branch of the White Water with a few family memebers and I hooked a big brown trout. It ran me up and down the river a few times before I got it landed. After the excitment was over I looked down and saw I had a big rusty hook stuck in the calf of my leg.
The first thing I thought of was pushing it through then cutting the barb off. One little push changed my mind. That would really hurt!
Then I remembered the loop of line trick. I put a loop of line around the hook at the bend then pressed the eye of the hook hard into my skin. One little tug and the hook came right out. A little antibiotic ointment and a check to see when I had my last tetanus shot and it was all over.

It's an easy trick that works well.

Yes, I was pleasantly surprized just how fast and painless this proceedure worked.
The line in the loop believe it or not is exactly what hospital ER's use to remove hooks from patients. However, no cute nurses out in the wild.

Gotta keep an eye on Boyz... he's always getting things stuck in him. Back when we were kids he had to have a bullhead spine cut out of his hand after it went through one finger and into another. And don't let him handle an ax, either!! wink.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
