One can only imagine the pain this guy is feeling when a hook finds its way into his hand.
How many out there have had this happen to you? A fun day of fishing turns into your worst nightmare, when instead of a fish, a hook embeds itself deeply somewhere on the skin. Knock on wood I have yet to be punctured. This guy wasn’t so lucky.
What looks to be a topwater bait for bass, one can only imagine how those barbs found flesh on the hand of Mike Wagoner. And judging from this cell phone video, it wasn’t a pleasant experience.
Caution: NSFW language used.
There are a number of methods out there for removing a hook from oneself – working it over with a pair of pliers might not be the best. Even worse luck is when you hook yourself a second time with the rear trebles. Yikes!
We feel your pain, Mike. Sweet catch and release, though.
