just take a pair of needle nose and rip it out, it stops hurting and bleeding after a while.

We fish VERY remote lakes all the time so a doctor is out of the question if you get a hook.  The best way to handle a treble is to have very good (Knipex) cutters.  Then you start trimming. If 2 hooks are buried, you must force one of them up through the skin so the barb is exposed. Then snip the barb end and shove it through.  Then this technique in the video can be used for the single remaining hook.  This technique moves the barb away from the spot it’s catching on, allowing it to slide free without too much “collateral damage”.  Either way it gets a bit messy and I’ve seen guys get a bit woozy (not the guys with the hooks but onlookers).

The absolute worst though, is when you have a musky start thrashing, and embed a hook in you by this thrashing. Then, you are attached to a powerful 50+ inch fish that is now THRASHING while attached to you by a hook !!!!! shock Not a pleasant day !

It was only a matter of time for Palaniuk. Watching him land his fish during both the 2011 and 2012 Classic was painfull enough. You cant be careless when fishing a bait with multiple hooks in it for too long. It will eventually get you snake

i’ve hooked myself many times by myself. it really hurts. the last one was about a month ago when I fell down setting a hook on a big bass. I landed on a treble hook that went straight into my wrist. i had to push it all the way through and make a new hole. once the sharp point popped through my skin I was able to grab it and pull it through. needless to say, the stink in the boat wasn’t from the fish.  lol BH
