My shirt was pinned to me , I was getting ready to take my kids to a doctor appointment or something equally important , and I was otherwise alone. It was a treble from a bass plug , and two prongs of the treble were buried in my stomach , right below my ribs. There was nothing to do but grab the trusty needlenose pliers and get to it. Having someone snatch a hook out of you is a much better way to go , kind of like pulling a band aid off fast , but I set my jaw and started pulling. The skin on my gut stretched for what seemed like a foot before it finally popped out , and I almost got the rear treble from the plug in me from the other direction. Thankfully it didn't go in past the barb , because I doubt I could have pulled another hook out , especially not with my left hand and the bad case of the shakes I developed pulling out the first one.
Anyway , I've seen some nasty hook shots on social media here lately. Be careful out there , guys and gals!
