your ear! That would really hurt! My first was running a trot line on the Kentucky River. Luckily the hook just scraped across my hand and didn't stick. After that tho, when Daddy said let go the line, I dropped it like it was an electric wire.
Carlito, looked up your website. Good info! I had forgotten that trick. Wish I had it day before yesterday. When I get home I will print it out and stick it in my vest. Good to have.
