Capsize? In a Gheenoe?

(I'm still looking for a used one.)


The Gheenoe did very well today . We only got into one strainer but the boat stayed upright . I had a rookie in the front and he did quite well paddling and catching fish .
We had one incident when I landed a smallie for him and the treble hook ended up buried past the barb near my index finger nail with the fish hanging off the end . We had to take the hook off the lure and cut the barb off and continued to fish .
I'm so tired after the long trip paddling all the way that I'm heading to the walk in clinic tomorrow to get the barb removed . We tried every secret trick to get it out ,and it would not come out . I hope doc can get it out without cutting too much of my finger .

ouch. been there-done that. the guy in panama city knew what he was doing. he numbed my finger then took a hypo needle and ran it down beside the hook, putting the hollow needle over the barb of the hook and pulling both out at the same time. he said he gets 3 or 4 hook removals a week in the spring/summer.

I had a nurse practitioner remove the hook this morning in the ER by cutting behind the barb and pulling it straight out . I think the shot in my hand to numb the pain hurt more than having the hook in my finger . It's still numb and I can't use my left hand yet because of the swelling and numbness .
I have another float trip planned for next week . \:\)

They were mostly small . I'm going to float some different areas the next time . Too many slack water areas in the stretch we floated .

I didn't take pictures .
My friend caught a smallie and I landed it without a net . I got it in the boat , only to end up with a Rapala in my finger and the smallie still hanging on the lure . It was shaking around and heavy enough to drive the treble hook past the barb and deep into my finger next to my finger nail .
It felt like my finger was being hit with a hammer . I felt better once we got the hook cutoff and I continued to fish . I figured I would wait to go to the ER this morning . I was too tired out last night to sit in the ER .
