That must have been what mine looked like when I put a hook like that in the back of my head when I was 7yo A little novicane and the doctor pushed it through and snipped off the barb. I remember that sound still....

Not a lot of "action" but here's one of my fav's from this summer. Bullard's Bar Reservoir, early July. This was the same day I rushed out of the campsite to fish at dawn, no wallet, fumes of gas, and no oars. Eventually got a tow and bartered a castmaster for $5 in gas. Yes, I learn my lessons the hard way!

Here's a better look at my "catch"...tried as hard as I could but couldn't get that dam barb out in the water. Pulling 400' of crab line out with that sucker in my right hand was no joke!

I remember helping an old guy (must have been in his 70's) tie up his boat in Monterey, as he seemed to be using one hand. He showed me his problem: about a 2" hook through the meat of his hand. He said it had happened as he started fishing that morning; when he came back in it was about 4 in the afternoon. SOB had fished all day with that thing in there.Having nothing to cut the barb off with, I referred him to the Urgent Care Clinic up the street. We recovered his boat and off he went. I don't remember if he caught anything or not.

Yeah that hooking was worthy of an ER visit. The guy I saw in the ER had the tip sticking out so it would have been easy to cut the barb part off and remove it.

How the heck did they get that out of you? Did they cut a bigger hole? Or just numb it and pull?

Oh he caught a big one for sure! 2" hook is fairly big. Poor guy, glad to hear you helped him

Ninjah, if you ever are headed out on the SF Bay let me know. We, meaning my partner Adeline and I, might join up with you. I don't know too many people with similar boats to mine. Typically we launch from Horseshoe Cove on the North Side of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is always calm, with easy access to the ocean and bay. Which is why it houses one of the Coast Guard stations.

If you want the next time we are headed to Angel Island or out I can send you a PM?

I've been to the ER with an ocean fly fishing hook in my bicep, not a fun visit.

I have a scar on my shoulder about 1 1/2" from my days as a charter angling boat deckhand (I think I was about 17). A careless customer dragged a rather large hook through my clothes and my skin...

The wife and I will be in Carmel for our annual Christmas trip and possibly some house hunting as we love the area. Maybe we should have a NorCal Christmas drinks night?

We may splash the boat for Christmas, but will remain up here in the Bay. But I'm willing (and anxious) to bring the boat down to The Monterey Bay and to Carmel this summer.
