Default First day of vacation in Mexico Beach = misery

Got to fish about an hour tonight before the fun started.
Stepped on a hard head cat and the the sucker popped the fin all the way into my foot.
My wife helped me hobble back to the beach house and we got it cleaned up. Now I can enjoy my vacation watching tv and hurting.
Hope you guys had better luck today !

Sorry to hear about that but you may want to go to the doctor,we have had two friends who did the same thing and they went thru hel; before they got them cleaned up.One went thru 4 little operations and was on crutches for months.If it swells or really starts hurting do not mess around, Go to the doctor!

Suck it up and keep fishing ya pussy.


Water as hot as you can stand it without actually burning yourself, soak for at least an hour.
Did you double check the fishes spine to make sure none of it broke off?
If in doubt, go to the Doc asap or you may regret it.
The infection can get really nasty and healing is prolonged.

G'luck.

Been there, feel for ya, even a clean one can hurt for a day or two.
Take it easy on it and let it heal.
At least it wasn't a ray, those are even worse.

Tobacco spit will draw the poison out, if it's not to late. I took a hardhead to the hilt in my calf muscle it knocked me on my knees it hurt so bad. I pulled it out and put tobacco spit on it I was fishing the next day. It works for bees & wasp too.

Yes sir it does work for wasps and bees so as soon as my wife got finished cleaning it I told her to bring me my can of dip so I could doctor it up .
