I was just watching the OLN on either Friday or Saturday and there was a fishing show on where a guy was throwing some pretty big jig-n-pig outfits. He ended up jamming a nice big hook (minimum 1/0) in the meaty part of his hand between the thumb and index finger. They made the best out of it, but his partner was a little wide-eyed, even more so when he had to use the pliers to yank the barbed hook out of the other guys hand. I gotta give him some credit, he didn't even whimper. I can guarantee I wouldn't have handled it as well, probably would have had to put on the life jacket, cause when I passed out I wouldn't want to fall overboard and drown
