I'm glad your thumb is still attached! Could have been so much worse...I love fishing, but I stay away from pike and muskie.

What about those snakehead fishes you like to catch?  :P

They look like they could do some serious hurt to the fingers if'n you weren't careful!

  • Fishing is like smoking crack. Only more expensive
    • Birdsnests and bent hooks

Musky bit my thumb...

Sometimes you catch the musky…sometimes the musky catch you

This was the result of me trying to unhook a fish that had jaw spreaders in its mouth and decided to shake at the wrong time. He caught me with his teeth and they dug in…deep!



The hospital visit was quick but I will be out of commission for a bit :-(
