Ouch. That always sucks. I got barbed pretty good by a bull head this past weekend. First time in a long time. Stupid thing flopped out of my hand and landed in some weeds on the bank. So I figured I would just reach down and flip him in the water. Bad idea. I forgot how bad that hurts. Didn't mean to hijack ur thread. Where did you get hooked at in ur arm and how did you manage that?

I got barbed by a cat a week or so ago. And I pulled a crankbait through a tree to free it and it came back and set right into my bicep going into my shoulder muscle.

Ah, yeah been there too. Thats one of those duck and cover situations when the hook breaks free when youre tugging on it. Glad youre OK though, stay safe out there.

Tom,
After seeing your infliction, I bought me some Wire Cutters for my boat. I put them in my emergency kit, hoping never to use them.
Man oh Man, cant imagine.

Ezbite, I saw your thread back when you did it, but never noticed the worm still dangling off of the harness!! Did you have to unhook it from the treble, or did your eye do the work for you?! Gave me a good 4am chuckle... Knowing that you turned out okay of course!!!

Luckily, in my 25 years of fishing, I've never been hooked to where the barb is still imbedded..... Yet! *knocks on wood*. But when we were like 3 or 4, my cousin went to cast out while I was right next to him, and got me in the back of the neck instead! Somehow the barb popped through on its own, (probably from me trying to run away screaming, with my cousin "fighting" his catch) and my dad was able to "unhook" me.... After he could get me to stay still for the 2 seconds it took! lol

A few years back an OGFer got hooked deep in the throat by his girl while cat fishing. Called 911, there is a pic of him in a neck brace with the hook buried in there and a chicken liver necklace. Everything turned out OK I believe.

Glad to hear it wasn't too deep, watch that thing for infection, that's always my concern when I get hooked.
