LJ 9/24 am

Headed out and launched around 5am. Was on rushed morning trip due to buddy having plans. By about 6am I had a treble hook into my thumb... deep. My buddy hasn’t caught a yellow so I toughed it out and kept Fishing. Managed to disconnect the treble from the lure which helped and only hurt when I accidentally hit it. No yellows but we did hook up on a few Calicos and a few bottom fish. Back in by 10:00. Went to urgent care doctor says “looks like you caught something.” He did a great job. Snipped the treble off and the poked it through until it slid right out. If it was a Saturday I would have downed some tequila and did it myself but I have work tomorrow
I’ll spare you all the bloody photos of it coming out.
And still better then going to work

Did the same a year ago in the same spot on the thumb. After fishing, went home and watch youtube videos to the decide the best method of removal. Opted for the string on hook... pull out while tilted so the barb does not catch method. It worked well, but need a second person to do it.

Yea after talking to some guys I heard about the string on the hook method. It’s good to know for next time. Although my copay was only $20 and it was kind of mice getting hit with the lidocaine to not feel a thing.
