luckily there was someone else in the boat to cut the fins off , so he could head to the Emergency room to have them cut out.
he said the doc had no idea what a catfish sticker was so he was trying to pull them out at 1st.
my friend had to tell the doc what to do to get them out

it wouldn’t move... trip to the ER was required.

They had to hold the finger somehow and force it thru - I didn’t watch or ask how.
