Like the subject line says, any advise will be appreciated.  I am tired of getting spiked.  Those little stab wounds stay painful for weeks sometimes.  Dominick

I always carry a "nice" floating and alluminium plier but also carry a long nose plier for those deep hook-ups

you can search for one of these

I also keep a long nose pliers on my belt, but use it seldom.   I fish mainly with triple hooks and even with barbs flattened it is sometimes difficult to remove and seems easier with fingers.

Dominick,
I always have two heavy duty dehookers with me when Sharking.
They are made of stainless and come from across the pond.
I've learned a different method on the smaller ones.
Pulling on the leader to keep the hook inline and a quick tug pops it right out.
The Arc dehooker is very popular using this method.

I either use long locking forceps or a variation of these:

A piece of coat hanger wire with a 180 degree bend on one end and a larger loop to use as a handle on the other end.  Grab the leader with the wire.  While holding the leader taught, slide the wire down the leader until it is around the bend of the hook.  Pull the hook out of the fish.  Same principle as Lee's.

You never need to touch the fish if it has some weight.  For small panfish hold the leader in one hand, the wire in the other hand, with the fish dangling in the middle.  Then flip the fish off the hook.

Mine are free and heavier than coat hangers Steve.  I have used a cup hook in a dowel in the past too.

I use one of my gaff's hook for a de hooker. Works great and you don't have to bring the fish out of the water. I also have two pair of needle nose pliers handy (one in the stern and one near the bow). I agree free is good. Keta is a generous man ......................... thanks for the descenders.
