gurnard sting
« on: January 19, 2020, 06:19:35 pm »
Hi Fishos,
              I got spiked by a gurnard 20 odd years ago, 2 hours of pain and that was it. Two weeks ago got jabbed again, same pain but my hand blew up for two days.My question is this for those that have been got more than twice, do you build up less resistance or is it luck of the draw with the spikey bastards?

Thanks for that, I was worried the more you got spiked the worse it got. funny about the colour mine went all yellow.

 The best treatment for a gurnard sting is don't let the buggers get you nuh the best thing is the hottest water you have at hand  the water telltale on the motor is better than nothing even waste your coffee or tea in the thermos
if not available make it bleed to flush out the enzymes  hope this helps
  cheers
