Well what can you say another beautiful day on the water or so i thought.We started out early 5.00am with 10 yearold in tow heading to Jacobs well to put the boat in,first trip there for the little one all excited .Things were busy from the start too many boats for my liking wont be going there on a week end again ,so off we went up near the mouth had a little fish caught nothing moved on to a little place that we know of for a quite fish flicking a few lures. Found a nice tree to have a play under and oops misjudged bigtime and caught the tree thats ok go in to retrieve the lure and the boat shifts and i start to go over and yes guess what i grab the lure ouch that hurt. I couldnt get it out so we tracked back to Jacobs well got the boat out and went looking for a Doc ,ended up in Beenliegh ??? found medical centre Doc couldnt fix this one jabed me with happy drugs and sent me to Logan Hospital with boat in tow. Rocked on up to the ER got many Giggles i was happy and then they jabed me with more goodies and cut then pushed the lure out . All in a Days Fishing it hasnt put me off one bit.8-) ;D

just one of those days eh? :o ;D

Mate, if you want to get away from the ramp rage at Jacob's, then give Rudy Maas a go. It'll cost you 9 bucks but saves you worrying about someone nicking the rollers off your trailer or breaking into your car. If it's ever busy, (rarely) they even help you trailer your boat

Should have just done what my mate did, I must say I did call him a $#%&head. He just grabbed the treble with pliers and pulled it out. LOL took him a good 5 minutes and quite a few choice words

Just snap the barbs off.
Hooks come out pretty easy then. I learnt the hard way :)
