clip the tips of the fins with a pair of side cutters prior to removing it from the hook.  That will prevent the points from sticking you, but watch out for the barbs on the pec fins, then can slice you as well.  Keep a glove in your tackle box and slip it on when remove the hook.  A few extra minutes will save you a couple of days of pain...

Hindsight is 20/20 because I am hurting bad! My finger looks horrible! Stupid little fish! I was using a pretty big hook and big bait actually so I have no idea why I caught this little guy. I admire his tenacity.  icon_mrgreen

A little Epson salt will take the swelling/pain down... That triple antiobiotic cream as well... I hate when I get stuck by one.. Hurts for days...

Got me right in the joint. It may have been a small fish but it stung like a 75lber!  icon_lol Thank you for the tips!

 I was dumping a bucket of fish after I cleaned them and a fin went in at the base of my finger nail and came out behind my middle knuckle on my ring finger. icon_eek

 I asked a guy at the ramp to help me pull it out and he almost pucked icon_mrgreen  He didn't want no part of it.

 The worst part, it was after a morning trip and my afternoon customers were already there waiting to go out. I pulled it out and with some duct tape and a rag, I made it through he day.  To this day, that knuckle still hurts.
