Guys, I love all of you but there is no way I am going to stick a hook in my arm for a DIY article.
Besides, why reinvent the wheel? These guys were kind enough to have already done this for me. So enjoy their video!
When the worst happens, know how to safely remove the hook!
I have a friend (you know who you are!) that LOVES RattleTraps.
He insisted on fishing with one around a rig that had a lot of hangups around him.
Anyways, he was unhooking a trout when he hooked himself with one of the treble hooks.
I suspect the trout was the culprit or at least that is what he claims anyways. We got the hook out with no problems.
