    Yikes! That’s kind of terrifying that the sign needs to be that big…. but I guess it’s a common injury for fishermen.

    Great shot and ouch that would hurt.

    • Thanks. In our local hospital for many years there was a styrofoam “dummy” in the hallway, and during fishing season nurses hung hooks on the appropriate body part from which it had been removed. Of course this provided many laughs and imaginary ouches! Then someone had to be offended, and the dummy was taken away. No sense of humor!

        How sad that someone has no sense of humor and the dummy was removed. I would think all of that laughter would be good for moral.

    That’s just funny! I had to find an emergency veterinarian once because my weenie dog got triple hooked- he was constantly getting into anything that seemed like it might have food in/on it!

  8. Gee, that’s not a good sign! — Pun intended! 😀

  10. Whaaat? It is that much of a problem that they had to set up a dedicated sign for it? That is kind of funny:)

  11. Apparently, there is a need for this. 🙂 Great finding.

    • We have a friend who had to use the service. He was removing a hook that was far down in the fish, and it suddenly released and became lodged in the area of his hand between thumb and first finger. He was not able to get it out, so went to this place, where the doctor had a special tool for removing the barbed hook. It took only a couple of minutes and cost almost $600.
