Was getting stuff ready for a fishing trip Friday. My son left a fly hanging loose on a rig and somehow it all too close to a finger. When I pulled my hand away from something I had reached for this #10 sized hook caught my finger and buried deep. Sorry, no pics. I was too busy manning-up to get the hook out as I was not going to the ER. Took about 3 minutes of manning-up, and a pair of vice grips, but I did get it out. Made it bleed some, then doused it with hydrogen peroxide followed by antibiotic ointment and a small bandage - then went fishing.

Almost cannot tell where the puncture occurred. No redness or swelling two days later. Is tetanus a concern here? Am I too late and will simply not wake up one morning?

Yes, I have 22 ammo if someone is going to call dibs.

Yes, tetanus is a concern.

When was your last tetanus shot?

Dude, I've buried big 8 and 10/0 hooks in the meaty part of my hand a number if times.

Just push the point through, cut the hook with wire cutters. You may have to cut the skin to get the hook through.

Once you're done, wash with hot water and soap and then put some neosporin in and on it.

I've done this on the beach...had about 6' of pissed off shark fling a hook that stuck in my hand...got it out and then jammed some anti bacterial gel in it and kept fishing. FYI...that stuff burns worse than pushing the hook through.

The real fun is when you get a treble hook on a top water lure stuck in you, and the back end of that lure is still hooked to the fish.

I've hooked myself / been hooked by others too many times to count. Just make sure that your tetanus vaccination is up to date.

If not, dibs on your gizzzards.
Link Posted: 6/15/2014 7:06:37 PM EST
Do not know status of last tetanus shot. Guess I should call doc.

Maybe it was a small hook, but the way it happened, I did not simply bury the point. I had a hold of the fly with a pair of vice grips trying to turn the hook point up and back out to the outside. Could not see the point. And besides, it was my finger.

went fishing with my grandfather when I was a kid, he had cataracts and couldn't see very well. He cast one time and hooked me in the mouth, couldn't pull it out because of the barb so we pushed all the way through and went back to fishing. I think I was about 8 at the time.

Cut my finger down to the white meat putting a Remington 1100 back together last week, it was a gusher. Little peroxide, Neosporin, and bandaging...back in business.

#10 fly that hadn't hit the water yet? Meh…

If you want to get some experience in pulling hooks take up Spey casting. So far I have had spey flies up to 2/0 embedded in the following locations:

Jaw, buried into the bone, extracted with SOG tool.
Back of the eye socket. Yes, the hook went in just above my eye and buried in the bone at the top of the eye socket. 3rd cast of the morning, 5:30 am, salmon passing close in to me. My fishing partners said I needed to go to the hospital. When we clipped the tippet I could open my eye and see through the blood. They wouldn't touch it so I went to the truck and used some pliers to pull it out. Amazing how far your eyelids stretch while trying to pull a barbed 2/0 hook out.
Arm. A client buried a 2/0 to the shank. I had him sit in the boat and I pushed it through and clipped off the point. Put a bandaid on it and went back to fishing.
Butt. 8/0 to the butt, pull, ouch.
Finger. Too many to mention except the one that pulled a long white stringy thing out when I yanked it out. That one hurt.

Fish on...

Do seriously consider getting a tetanus booster. Otherwise, keep it clean and dry and watch for infection.
Link Posted: 6/15/2014 7:21:03 PM EST
Unless you have mice and sorts of other critters in your tackle box, I wouldn't worry too much about tetanus.

Lol...things happen. FYI...if you're not wearing eye pro while fishing...you're a fool. I had a big redfish smack a top water lure in the surf..li let it run and then set the hook...HARD...how it did not hook that fish is a mystery, but I had a 4" long plastic projectile with 2 big treble hooks flying at me...it didn't hit me, but it sure came close.

I learned of this in a safety class
While fishing I caught a #12 fly hook in the arm so I had a friend remove it with this method.
It does work and is relatively painless.
You can do a search on the webz and see that it's a verified technique



Link Posted: 6/15/2014 9:16:34 PM EST
Here is what you will look like after all your muscles lock up from the tetanus.

You might break your own back from the stress.

Looks good, but no thanks.

Did you catch any fish?
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 1:11:39 PM EST
Just keep an eye on it, you will know if it's infected trust me. A tetanus is not a bad idea if you are not caught up on it.
Link Posted: 6/16/2014 1:20:22 PM EST
Meh, I buried my right thumb into my table saw blade a week ago today. (Yes I got a tetanus shot along with stitches).

Man up OP.

Next time use a length of thick mono and yank it back out.

So, I called doc's office and asked about the tetanus thing. Said my records showed nothing in the way of a tetanus shot since being with this doc - that would be 13 years. They told me to come in, so I did and they juiced me up.

As far as the fish goes . . . put 21 crappie in the freezer that day. Went back 2 days later and got 28 more. I haven't crappie fished in any serious way for several years - been a basser for the most part. But you can't hardly beat crappie for table fare or the fun if you get on them. Never had much luck with crappie and artificial baits. Since there's no bait shop near by, I became a bass fisherman. Found an artificial bait them crappies like now, so I am taking advantage of it and putting some fillets in the freezer.

Hey. The guy in the picture. That was me inside my truck on Friday after throwing up in the truck. My back muscles were spasing out and I was stuck in the truck for about ten minutes.

I dont think I could go through that again. Doctor said it could have been caused by dehydration.

eta

At least I had my cloths on.

You went fly-fishing and didn't use barb-less hooks? Shame on you.

A friend and I went out for catfish and he decided to haul back on his rod and cast waaay out there. I was standing behind him and the hook caught me in the back of my neck. With a live goldfish on it. I let out a yell that he took for me just having a good time and he yanked hard on it thinking he had caught the hook in some brush. This time I let out a scream because now the hook was set deeper in my neck. With a live goldfish on it. He realized what had happened and pushed the hook through, clipped it, and pulled it back out. Luckily I had already drank a few cans of "anesthetic" and had a cooler filled with more so it didn't turn out that bad. It bled pretty good and some Neosporin and a bandaid when I got home and I was good to go.

I got a 2/0 big eye Clouser minnow stuck in the back of my neck once from some doofus who couldn't understand how to tighten up his loop. That shit hurt. A lot.
