well,when fishing with misfit,many of you know it's bound to happen you may not know what or when,but you just KNOW al's not gonna go as planned,LOL. the headboat trip was no different. while moving between spots,mrs. misfit asked me to replace her double hook drop shot rig with a spreader. after cutting the rig off and laying it on the seat between us(first mistake)leaving the 1 ounce sinker on(second mistake). apparently,the sinker rolled off the seat,pulling a hook into the back of sweetie's casting hand,between the index and middle finger. the sting of the hook caused her to jerk her hand up,thereby burying the barb deep into her hand,and burying the second hook in the side of MY hand with the sinker swinging below.gives new meaning to the term "bonding",eh" LOL. ok,i immediately jerk the hook back out of my hand in order to cut the line and sinker off her hand. we call on the first mate for surgical assistance due to the awkward position of the hook. while i get a good grip on my baby's hand,the mate pushes the hook out through the palm of her hand,cuts the barb off and backs the remainder out of the entry point. this episode reminded me of just one of the reasons i love my little redneck w. va. hillbilly.she's one tough cookie except for a slight grimmace,she never complained or made even the slightest wimper.instead,after surgery she sucked down a beer,tore the band-aid off,grabbed her rod and went right to fishing i think it hurt me and the first mate worse than it did her maybe now,you all know why she usually won't fish with me,LOL. ps................look for more complete reports on the rest of the hawgfest,soon.other than that incident and poor fishing,it was a great time.
