Debarb Your Hooks!

Yep, that's my dad with another lure impaled into his body.  This happened to him the other day when a big snook flung this Zara Spook straight back at him at warp speed.  Fortunately he was on my boat using one of my lures and I crush the barbs on them as soon as I take them out of the box.  The last time this happend to Pops he was on his boat trying to unhook a bluefish when a barbed Mirrolure wound up under his thumbnail.  We ran back home and three strong Manhattans later I was cutting into him with a razorblade.  Lesson learned.  Debarb your hooks and you'll aviod a trip to the emergency room or kitchen table surgery.
