Well....... it was bound to happen!!!
« on: August 14, 2016, 11:16:33 PM »
Amazing how things happen in Life!!!!

It just so happens that Myself, Chez and Spider were in this very same predicament this very weekend!!!!!  Chez got a treble hook buried in the hand this weekend and Spider helped get it out!! Got it out quick and all was fine.  That was Saturday morning.....

WELL.. Sunday evening my son was fishing at his neighbors pond next to his home and snagged onto the tail of a Carp. Got him in to shore and went to make the reach for the fish and the inevitable happens!  The frog lure pulled out and buried itself deep into his hand!  Guess he walked into the house and his girlfriend nearly pukes at the sight!  lol

My son Mike gave me a call and asked what to do... uggghhhh.. I thought..  how to explain this one over the phone on removing buried hooks yourself or going to the ER...
I live a 1/2 hour away and tried to gave my Fatherly advice on removing the hook but no success.

I finally said his best bet would be, just go to CMC in Scranton and have it professionally and medically removed by the ER staff since he will need a Tetanus shot too.

20 minutes later I call his girlfriend to see their status and she says he is still sitting at the kitchen sink trying to remove it!!!!  They never left for the ER..

Now I'm really feeling bad and worried as a parent!
 I quickly gave her the You-Tube link to watch on hook removal!  Well............. It worked!!!!  He's a little sore but the barb is out as this was a pretty large hook.

Best You-Tube video that is out there in my opinion!

*******Copy this Link and save it!!!!!!!!!!!  it works!!!!  He did the 2nd removal method!



A couple photos from this incident...





I'm not sure if this was before or after the removal... He was holding Ice on the swelling!



An identical lure he has...

GLAD MICHAEL is OK,COWDAWG..THAT WAS NASTY!!!!
THAT VIDEO WAS EVEN MORE NASTY..That GUY IS TOUCHED IN THE HEAD BURRING THOSE HOOKS IN HIS ARM :-\
I think he was on HEROIN!!!! :-\

I got stuck good Saturday,same part of hand,same hand matter a fact.
THE HOOK WAS NOWHERE THE SIZE of the one your boy got stuck with.

MINE was a treble from a RAPALA.
Spider knew what he was doing for sure ;)
Got it out painlessly in 1 split second...

Your boy should get a tetanus shot today......

Talked to him today. It's a lot sore today, little swelling..

He's keeping it clean and puts an antibiotic on it.  Called the family Doc. this morning and his Tetanus is up to date.. Doesn't need one..
Tetanus shots are good for 10 years per the Doc.

glad to hear he's doing ok. Yeah, the old tetanus shots were only good for 5 years. I took a razor knife across my hand a few years ago and went to get it sewn up and they gave me the new one that's good for 10 years and has all sorts of other stuff in there as well. It's called Tdap. It's tetanus, diptheria and whooping caugh all in one.

Chez, how's your hand?

Wow! That guy really IS "touched" to purposely bury 3 hooks in his arm!  ::)

I have heard the string method before and the push thru method, but never seen it done.

I'm just wondering if that would work if you got the hook buried into the "meat" instead of just under the skin?

Hope your son is starting to heal up by now Cowdawg!

I was thinking of this thread last week, I caught a small salmon on a #16 dry fly and the little bugger spit it right into the web of my right thumb. Buried it. Pulled it out with forceps. Ouch! LOL!

The hook that was buried in Chez's hand was definitly into the meat. That technique worked.

Oh yes!  Nothing wrong with him now!  Barely a mark on his hand now... 
Worst he had was some minor swelling and got a little black and blue a day or 2 later... 

THANKS FOR ASKIN'!!!!

Rut, I used the string methode, but I didn't use a string. That just makes it easier to pull on the hook. The big thing is when you push down on the hook, you can't be gentle, it might sting a little but you gotta push down so the barb is clear and then don't hesitate when pulling the hook free.
