I added a small bolt cutters to the first aid kit after seeing similar threads here on THT. Thankfully (knock on wood) haven't needed it yet.

Also add some Hibiclens (chlorhexidine gluconate) to clean the hook and wound site before and after pulling the hook out.

Use the same technique. Works great! Have had success on hooks to 8/0. For small hooks, I don’t even numb them as the lidocaine probably hurts more. Nothing worse than when patients come in with a hook that would have been easily removed, but they cut it off flush with their skin.

18" bolt cutter from Harbor Freight is $11.99
Bigger is better. Hibiclenz or peroxide is good

OK, I'll admit I have done this several times over the years. For typical Jhooks I can attest to the vid technique is magical (many times over).

For circles and big larger hooks, we ALWAYS had a hefty wire or bolt cutter on board. It only takes one time to go Darwin and keep a pair on the boat. The bugger is when (if) you need to pull that circle through the skin with pliers to cut it.

these are the ones I bought for my kit. I didn't want full size bolt cutters taking up room and rusting all over the place. I plan to vacuum seal these and keep in my first-aide kit. These aren't the cheapest but I don't get along with cheap tools and if the hook is in me I want it clipped smoothly.

This is exactly what I was about to post. Same link too..... I have a couple pair and they work significantly better than the kobalt mini bolt cutters..

Orthopedic surgeon. If the hook is not through, use the fishing line/string technique. If the hook is fully through, then clip the hook to do the removal. And,yes,ouch either way.

Sometimes bolt cutters are a no go, gotta cut it out...

We were about 30 miles off Suwannee when we had a 15lb red grouper inhale all three barbs on the front hook of a stretch 30. I thought I had whacked him sufficiently with the fish bat, but apparently did not do a very good job.

He then proceeded to flounce around and sink two of the three barbs on the tail hook deep into the heel of my hand. So, now he's still flouncing about but now he's hooked up to me while I'm coaching a 10 year old in where to hit the fish to finish him off.

" Uh, try not to hit the lure again, son"

For the general edification of the forum, the string trick doesn't work too well in multi-hook situations, but a good sharp pocketknife does...

There is now a small set of bolt cutters on my boat.

Default Bigger is better

A week ago last Sunday I caught a wahoo that fought back. When it jerked one hook on a Yozuri Bonita into my hand the other hook was still in its jaw. I fell on the fish and removed the second hook without further damage. A few years ago when a friend had a similar experience I ordered some small bolt cutters to keep aboard. At the time I tried them on a 9/0 Mustad 7732 and was able to get through it with two hands. No way on the Bonita hook with one. Nor could the capitan of a nearby dive boat with two. I was fishing alone on the Pacific outside Mag Bay about 50NM from where I launched so I got to wear the hook for about three hours until I could get back ashore and to a friend with some bigger bolt cutters. I ordered a pair of 14" cutters the next day.....
