Thanks Vito. I learned that trick myself about a year ago. I works well if the hook has only gone straight in, but if it curves with the hook bend under the skin your best alternative is to continue pushing it through and cut off the barb, then back it out.

From experience I can tell you a leatherman or multi tool will cut the hook,But they will get your other finger if you are not very very very carefull and believe me that hurts worse than the hook.From Lowes the smallest pair of Kobalt dikes will cut most any crankbait hook.I found this out at the Quick Care after the Dr. tryed unsucessfully several times to manuver the hook out.He was trying to salvage my lure,when he told me that I told him I have more treble hooks at home I can replace the hook cut it.He did and the rest of the hook almost fell out!

Besides bass/striper fishing and fishing for sunfish for bait, I also fish at night for large flathead catfish. I use 8/0 circle hooks for flatties. You definitely need strong compound cutters if you need to cut one of those bad boys!

last season I got one right in the pinkie. I ended up accidentally breaking the hook off at the bend while trying to remove it. I was going to leave it in but it was bothering me. the doc at the clinic took it out but afterwords told me a trick. he used to practice medicine in a town right on the shores of lake Erie and removed several hooks each week. you loop a piece of strong mono around the hook at the bend where it enters the skin, push down on the hook and pull it out with the mono. apparently pushing down on the hook at the bend releases the barb. I have not tried this yet so I don't know how well it works and hopefully i will never need to use this procedure.

This method has been described many times in fishing publications- I even have a little kit with directions.
Of course a broken hook is a different subject.
