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?
