    @Ronaldddavis – I see. That makes sense. Thanks.

    @jonnyspeed – no – it does not pull out a chunk of skin. There is an important point that he forgets to verbalize. They do mention it in a note at the top of the screen at 2:43 in the video. Notice that he is pushing down on the hook eye. That rotates the hook point down and “levels out” the barb. When you pop it, the barb point is level / parallel to the original entry wound so it does not grab a new chunk of flesh on the way out. The barb exits through the orignal entry hole.

    one of my friends got a hook in his thumb touching the bone we thought for a few minuets on how to get it out so we desided that somehow burning would be the best…but thank god we didnt do that so he just yanked it a few times. came right out. he cryed

  4. jonnyspeed says:

    So it does pull out a chunk of flesh though right? The barb is still in there. I suppose if you can’t get the hook all the way through this is a good method. I would prefer to cut the embedded hook and push it through if possible.

    Great example!!!! Call me crazy but i tried it right after with a cheap crank bait and it works. Be sure to steralize the wound afterwards though its important!!! Thanks i love the show i hope the oil spill dont mess with the show though!!!!!!!

    nice vid mind checkin out my channel

    @jdoum1096 Sure, people just tend to get stuck with trebles more often so that is why we did the demo with one, showing the importance of cutting off the other hooks.

  23. jdoum1096 says:

    does this work with single hooks?

  24. Kayak4Fish says:

    Another thing that was demonstrated in this video but maybe not really stated is the importance to pushing down and forward on the hook. The really is the key to getting it to pop right out.

  25. Kayak4Fish says:

    It should be noted that you need to carry a pair of cutters strong enough to cut through large, strong hooks. Small bolt cutters or heavy line mans pliers will do it, your needle nose or dykes are often not strong enough.
