Fish Gets Payback & Hooks Brooks in the Mouth

Revenge of the fish: Fishing Addicts Northwest angler Lonny Brooks takes a treble to the upper lip while bass fishing

While fishing solo, Lonny Brooks lands a bass, then pauses for a moment to take a selfie with his catch. Off camera, the fish flops, and the treble on the tail end of the jerkbait sinks two out of three points into his upper lip.

As Brooks mentions in the video, "This is not advised, kids." If something like this happens to you, you might want to seek medical attention.

This is by no means a how-to video, but keep in mind that his plan of action is to first cut the hook free from the bait using a heavy duty pair of wire-cutting pliers. He then pulls the points out one at a time.
At some point in most angler's lives, there comes a time when we end up with a does of our own medicine. Fortunately for fans of Fishing Addicts Northwest, Lonny Brooks was released unharmed.
