Default Blackwater 12-19

Caught 15 or 20 of them trouts from 8 o'clock to around 2 o'clock. Nothing too big; largest was 19". All were caught on a sebile magic swimmer.

I didn't catch anything but a gar until around noon when I found some good bottom and started catching on every cast. Then I got a friggin treble hook stuck in my hand while I was catching and lost fishing time. That was my first and it was pretty uncool.

I didn't have a knife, so I peddled to shore with a sebile hanging out of my hand and borrowed one. Got it cut out and back to fishing about 30 minutes later when it was about time to go. I caught 2 keepers on few casts in a spot by the ramp and had to get in the truck.

The forum won't let me post pics but it's just the 7 I kept laying on the table waiting to be cleaned anyway.

Default You need to learn the line trick to take out hooks

Works great, takes a few seconds.

This one is way too complicated but you get the idea

Better version without the drama

I've had three bad hooks in my bod, one in the scalp before I saw this. Pliers and a knife make a mess. The last two did the string thing. Not much blood and back to fishing quickly.

Thank you. I remember seeing something about this on the forum a while back, but I couldn't remember how to do it. I couldn't look it up on my phone either with the lure hanging out of my hand :-)

I thought the same thing when it happened but I ended up having to paddle to the bank to get the knife.

Go barbless! You will be suprised how few fish you lose. Only time I leave a barb on is single hook with live bait like mullet. Take a few moments and bend all your plugs down. You will thank me at some point!

Razzorduck is right. Smash those barbs down on trebles. Far better for the fish and safer for you. Keep your line tight like you should and you won't notice a difference in fish lost either.
