    Thumbs up Emergency Hook Removal Methods.

    Sooner or later you are going to get a hook stuck in part of your body. Ask me how I know. A good resource for the methods of hook removal can be found here.

    CL SmooV your welcome. Had a little accident with the fish hook thing myself today at home no less. Instead of a trip to Urgent Care I did a Google search and came up with the web site. Hey it worked, some blood, some pain, no tears. lol.

    You may have heard don't try to catch a falling knife, well don't try to catch a falling lure either.

    My favorite method is to simply push the barb back out, and remove it barb-first, so the eye easily slides out.

    It will hurt like a #$%&* though. But at the same time, less damage.

    Thanks for the info that we all hope we never have to use. A friend of mine recently got a hook in the tip of his finger while removing a Lucky Craft from a calico bass. He tried to pull it out with pliers with no success but had a sudden flash of inspiration and tried backing it out while rotating it; basically unscrewing it out of his finger. He said it popped right out with minimal pain. It might be worth a try if all else fails.
