While Bass fishing I snagged into this small snapper. It almost got me and I wanted to lift it into the boat but my wife reminded me how much they smell. We remembered our brother in law showing his V-shaped 3" black and blue bruise on his back from a 12 pound snapper he caught turtle trapping. He had it slung over his back and it bit right through the gunny sack. This was just a little guy but it coulda put some hurt on me if he got a finger.

I think that could have turned out real ugly if you hadn't had the pliers.............Lipping that bad boy would be fatal to some fingers. When my dad was young he tried to lip land grinnel. Almost cost him a thumb. I also found out the hard way that really big mud cats will clamp down on your thumb and do major damage. There's lots of critters in the water that are more than willing to bite you.........
