Default Those barbs!!!

Stumbled on some pics from last year. Went to pull a cat off the hook and it went haywire just as I was about to grab it and buried the barb. I couldn't pull it out. My boy ran some cutters between my hand and the cat to cut it. I tried to pull it with the pliers after that, but it just wouldn't budge, only stretching the skin like a rubber band. Loaded the boat one handed and went to the doc. A little anisthetic and an Xacto knife got it did, and then back to the water because we were Killin em. I'm just glad the barb missed that main vein between the thumb and index finger. The tan Skeeter carpet would have had a nice red paint job.
