The glove thread got me thinking what's some of your horror stories from dealing with muskies. My best one was I was fishing Alum creek and had caught a mid 30,s fish. I reached down in the net with my pliers to get the hooks out and just as I clamped down on the hooks she went crazy there's a surprise! My pliers went flying ending up sinking to the bottom of the lake. In all the thrashing a hook had went completely through the web of my hand. So now I have the lure still in the musky and in my hand and no pliers. So my next step was just to bring the fish the net and my now attached hand in the boat so I could get my other set of pliers. Well that didn't work the net has now gotten hung up in the trolling motor. I am now totally stuck with a fish going crazy with my hand totally attached to the lure. I have no idea how I'm going to get out of this mess. Well the musky fixed that with all the head jerking it had open a hole up in my hand big enough i was able to get the barb through it. When all was done she swam away and I was done for the day. Needles to say this was one of the reasons I started wearing gloves.
