This is my foot from last year.Dont leave big fat badass VMC 5/0 trebles lying around on deck when youre not wearing boots or else this WILL happen when you get wrongfooted by a wave.......Super-sharp so straight in it went without any fuss. Getting it out was altogether another story and eventually had to be dealt with by a professional rather than going the camel-man/medieval route.

I belive they say the best thing to do is to push it through and then cut the barb off.
I dont know who they is but they can go stuff themselves , that looks EINA

Bloody hell i had a hook lodged in my hand like that once, and my dad pushed it through and cut the barb of, i dont know where they learnt that but #### its painful, picture piercing yourself with a needle point VMC, this is just 1o times worse

Same thing happened to the deckhand on the charter boat i was once on in St Lucia. Kid got the rapala treble pulled through the side of his thumb. Skipper just drilled the hook out the other side and clipped the end off. Amazingly the lighty hardly flinched!Those boer kids are tough i tell you!

I guess what you gonna do, take a whole boat load of clients back to land without finishing the day?

Ajay, that looks nasty. And just figuring out your logistics of getting back to land and home with that under your boot is enough to feel dizzy.

How you Pat----Ja it was quite a ride back . Wrapped it in a towel and rode with the ball of my fooot as a shock absorber. Sort of. It was good in theory. In practice it was pretty crap.Had to trailer the boat and drive home too cos my old man was finished.Very good doc though. Didnt feel a thing.
As for that treble. Theres no pair of pliers thatsd just going to chop off the end of one of those puppies.Extra hard steel.Maybe an angle grinder LOL.

Howzit buddy. Actually i'm quite interested now to hear how your pro did get that one out? By the looks of it, it wouldve had to have come out the same way it went in. With the barb now in reverse! Eish. I feel more sympathy for fish now than ever...

As a kid, I was obsessed with fishing from about as soon as I could walk.... So I customerly spent many hours in the Garden casting and "playing" fishing if I wasn't actually fishing in the ocean or a dam or river...

One fine day I was casting a spoon in the garden on my shad stick ( I was about 7 or 8 at the time..) and managed to get the spoon nicely hooked into a piece of tough grass... proceeded to give me and my imagination quite a tussle.... that is of course till the grass "threw the hook"!
The spoon swung round in an arc and the treble planted itslef in the back of my heel.... It actually went in on one side of my achilles tendon, and wrapped right around the tendon and came out the other end.... solid hook up!!

Of course, I screamed blue murder!! "Mom Mom Mom! I've got a spoon stuck in my foot!!"

Of course Mom was thinking " A Spoon? How the hell does a spoon get stuck in your foot? It doesn't have any edges... A knife or fork I can understand, but a spoon?"
Anyway, by the time she got to me there was ALOT of blood and she duly took action and took me to the Doc who cut the hook, and pushed it through....

So ja, Trebles and barefeet are no fun!

Hey Nepps--Good to hear Im not alone!! Solid Achilles Hookup Aaaaaargh. But Mom .....Im not joking.............LOL

Ja Pat-It was one of these needle(?) scalpels that did it. Cant remember the right term but its got a very very thin blade height wise and needs a super steady hand.Worked down the bend of the hook making only the slightest cut every time into the muscle.3 days later it hardly even felt like it had even happened because there was so little trauma to the surrounding muscle tissue.Brilliant.

Hey Magish--It only looks impressive because its a treble!!If it was a single it would just look like a bit of steel poking out but those 2 unembedded ends still sends the odd shiver down mine too .

We went on a Bass Fishing weekend last year September at the Breede near Robertson. I caught a Barbel and was struggling to get the hook out when Mr. Barbel decided I was taking too long.

He gave one shake of the head and the hook was set. It was not fun driving around in Robertson at 07h00 in the morning looking for a GP to help. (I tried to pull the hook out- it wouldn't even move a millimeter).

Eventually found a doctor who took two minutes to inject the finger and cut it out. Went straight back fishing and caught a few nice bass!
