A pair of side cutters will do the same job on a hook of that class.

c hook...I'd opt for the 8" Irwin's, they have hardened cutting edges, lifetime guarantee, and under $15 bucks. They may be cheaper at Lowe's or HD. Side cutters won't cut a hook that is 10/0 or larger in size. If you have one that big in you, ouch. The string pull out method still works, but ouch.
my fear is the 1st jerk doesn't get it, and we have to jerk a few times. lol but that looks to be the best way if not too deep. i'll need good cutters either way.

1st jerk may fail if the process isn’t followed correctly. When it fails, it hurts even more. The failure possibilities are minimized if you understand how it works. Depth of the penetration makes no difference. A barb below the skin is a barb below the skin.

The shank of the hook needs to be retained, so never shorten the shank if you cut the hook. The process works when you press on the shank as the hook is popped out. Pressing on the shank elongates the hole and this elongation provides a channel for the barb to reverse out without grabbing extra flesh on the way back out. Tell the person turn their head and count to 3. When they say 2, pop it out before they say 3. Keep pressure on the shank during the pop. They hit 3 with toes curled and eyes squinted and then they see you already pulled the hook and they didn’t notice it.

Failure can also occur if the person pulling the braid pulls at the wrong angle. The barb may grab skin if they pull at the wrong angle. You’ll see stars when this happens.

Circle hooks will not pull straight back out with this technique. Do not try this method of hook removal on a circle hook.
