He has a valve that he can stop it with his left hand,also there's a emergency stop that if he gets hooked,he can stop it with his leg as he is pulled back,AND I have a stop in the wheelhouse also. We never like it when the guys get hooked,and it does happen,it's not a question of if,its when then get hooked,the worst thing is if they rip it out or get dragged over to the crusifier,it's a lot easier to stitch a hole than a tear or rip. And yes we carry a pretty good med kit and some of us are trained to stitch them up.

When I was working on tugs up there in the 80's I listened to a guy call the CG for some help. The hooks were flying over the side and this guy's hand got in the way and one of the hooks peeled itself from one end of one of his fingers to the other end, opened 'im right up. But that's not as bad as the guy on the Japanese ship that got his arm wacked off at the elbow in the heading machine. :yike: And I thought tow boating was dangerous!!

A few years ago one of the owner/captains went down on deck to help with a tangled crab pot,the line shot out and a hook went in to the base of his pinky finger,right about in the middle,and came out the tip,it looked like he was giving the pease sign with his pinky. You do know what the most dangerous thing on deck is right,it's when the captain goes to show everyone what to do. I say that and I'm the capt.
There's also the saying,you know what the difference between god and a captain,god doesn't think he's a captain.

those stories remind me of the movie perfect storm when dude gets hauled out the back of the boat by his hand with a big arse hook right through it :yike:, i watched my buddy reef on a jitter bug when we were out bass fish and it flew right into his nose and the hooks went right through it like a piercing, it was funny walkn into the emergency room with a big ole bass lure stickn in his snout  :chuckle: stay safe up the SCVETTE and for the crews sake, stay off the deck  :chuckle: :tup:

Do you use circle hooks? Seems like it would be difficult to get hooked with one and I thought that's all that was used.

Also do you have an automatic dehooker? Seems like you'd have to at one hook per second, that is movin!

We do use circle hooks,but they sometimes,well actually a lot get straightened out some,we have hook benders that the crew uses to put them back into shape,that's what they're doing as we haul the gear,putting new hooks on and bending the straight ones back,we go through about 2500-3500 hooks a day.
On the hook removal on the fish,they go and hit what we call the crusifier,the line goes between 2 rollers that are close to each other and the hook gets pulled out,we can only crucify cod,pollock and skate,we can do the rockfish as long as the season is open,if it's closed we have to release them by rolling the hook out or straightening the hook,as I said before if a halibut,or the rare salmon that comes up hits the crusifier,I could be issued a $2500 fine,that doesn't go to the boat,or the crewman that let it happen,I get to pay it myself.
