While on the way to the "really" shallow water I saw a few fish so I staked out and caught this guy in about 12". Water wasn't super clear but you can still see the grass bottom in the photo.

Of course he did get the last laugh while I was taking the Skitterwalk out of his lips...

Feel your pain, brother. Did the same myself a couple years ago, only right in the knuckle. Fortunately the hooks were new and I had a sharp knife aboard. Cut it loose, doused it with a generous splash of Heineken and kept on fishing.

Love those Skitter Walks, even with trebles. ;) And nice way to christen the new rod!

Man that made my butt pucker..........:oops:

Glad to see you crushed the barbs - I do that on ALL my treble lures.

At least it was on a red. I got a treble in the nose from a cuda, and one in the hand from a ladyfish. At least the nose became a funny story.

Pinched barbs or not, OUCH!

Yank it out, piss on it and carry on my man.

MHX blanks make really nice rods, awesome job. You won’t forget this one.

Looks like you got lucky with the belly hook.

No luck involved...pure skill.

he was attached to both hooks, but the belly hook was at the front of his mouth and the tail hook on the side of his head...it was when I pulled the tail hook that he shook his head so hard he buried it in my hand and jumped to the floor from the casting deck...big heavy fish too!
