If you ain't gonna eat 'em, think barbless. Then onea those bent wire dealies looks like it'ed work great, and not a great loss if it heads down ta Davy Jones Locker.

You should invite Dominick to come up and help fix the attendees of the saltwater sportsman show's reels for it.    Grin Wink

The best qualuty, strongest long-handled dehooker IMHO id the ARC long-handled dehooker.  I have used it to dehook thousands of sharks and pelagics offshore.  It is highly effective, floats, and breaks down into 2 pieces for storage.  They aren't cheap though, $190 for one with 2-4' sections.  They also make a long-handled line/wire cutter, both tools allow you to replace the blades, or overall heads if required ($162 for 2-4'section pole).  You can set up the poles as long as you want by buying more 4 or 6'' sections, and replacement blades are available.

These are the best made IMHO.

These do a pretty good job on the smaller guys:



Took the day off and those actually came handy on a few catfish today

Not many would. 

They do work great on large sharks and fiesty billfish though, and I just wanted to post a link because they do work great, and they may be of some interest to someone.

You're right.  I mostly fish in Mexico with a deckhand.  But going out with friends (friends don't unhook fish you catch) I have to do it myself.  I put a glove on to unhook a rock fish and was stuck by the top spine.  It went through to the bone and hurt for more than 2 weeks.  I could not put pressure on it for a full 2 weeks.  Dominick

In accordance with regulation No. 1 (known as the 12 year old rule) I cannot put it into print here, butt it went something like this "you rotten piece of &^%$%."  Cheesy Then I took it home and ate it.   Kiss  With a bottle of Chianti.  Dominick

This being a multi national website I think it wise to point out to Dominick that some of his friends are not being very polite in terms of some other languages where "Dom" or "Dommie" has a rather unflattering meaning  Grin Grin
