Did anyone see the Facebook Live video of Tim Horton's hooked digit?

It was pretty gruesome....I think I heard it was a #12 Treble...I know it was huge.

I've buried a couple hooks in myself, but never that bad.

In the video he had braid wrapped around it like someone attempted the line trick and failed. Kvd had a 1/0 or 2/0 triple grip in his hand mid tournament and a fan pulled it out.

I've pulled hooks outta probably 25 people with the string pop trick. Works like a champ.

Sometimes that happens.


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

He said in the video he didn't like the placement and was worried about tendons in the finger and is why he ended up going to the ER. His live feed was pretty comical though grin

Just watched extraction. Looks like the doc was cranking on that hook pretty hard with those pliers. I don't know if the line trick would have ever worked. Maybe, but it would have been a pretty painful ordeal.

I had one like that in my thumb couple weeks ago, I tried the heimlich maneuver and it did not work, when I yanked on the string it ended up pulling the hook all the way through my thumb, hurt like hell but all I had to do then was cut the barb off, it was a 5 o owner.

We had to do the old line trick last weekend. I had one buried in my knuckle past the barb and we were a long way from an ER. If you know where Zubler's is on Amistad then you'll understand. It hurt at first but my next cast took all the pain away. Caught a lot of fish, just nothing to write home about.

Fishing with a buddy at TB once and throwing a buzz bait. For whatever reason he got down to the center of the boat without me knowing it and I hooked him in the top of the head with that buzz bait. I was running the trolling motor and wasn't paying attention to what he was doing. Try to picture the buzz bait buried in the top of his head as I head to shore, get him in the truck and head into town. He was actually pretty cool about it but the more I looked at him the harder it got to not giggle. Found a clinic pretty quick and as we were walking down the hall way the buzz bait started spinning and I'm gurgling trying not to laugh. As we walked up to the receptionist she asked "can we help you" and simultaneously saw the buzz bait and said "oh I see". At that point I couldn't hold it any longer and LOL. The line trick wouldn't work on this one, or at least the doctor wouldn't try it so he cut the buzz bait off and pushed the hook on through. My buddy never said a word until I ask the doctor if there was anyway he could get the hook out and save my buzz bait and then my buddy started saying words, some I think he learned from watching George Carlin. You know words you can't say on TV. Anyway our day of fishing was over and after I treated my buddy to a nice dinner we were buds again.

Thats funny Ronnie.

I buried a 1/2 oz Lunker Lure in a buddy’s head and popped it out with the line trick. Took all of about two mins. Curious to know why some of you have not been successful doing it. Worked everytime for me.
