Hardest Hit You Have Ever Had?

Recommended Posts

I've had quite a few hard hits from various kinds of fish, but by far the hardest hit I ever had was almost 2 months ago when I hung what probably would have been my personal best bass had I managed to actually grt to hold it. Slow retrieve of the panfish assassin, and BAM, it was like getting slammed by a defensive lineman in football. Good thing I had a good hold of my rod, or else it woulda taken it up the river. Sheesh, I will never forget that one, it definitely wanted it! Still kicking myself for grtting over eager and trying to horse it up such a high distance from thr pier to the water, got a good long look and it made my 16" bass I posted a pic of, look small. I believe one could have just about put a baseball in its mouth!!! Anyway back to the topic, it clearly put its weight into that strike, I've caught numerous 10-12 lb cats and a 19 lb carp that didnt slam the bait/lure THAT hard. It even kinda scared me and caused me to say a four letter expletive because I was not expecting that in the least.

None of my top 3 biggest bass have hit hard. I wade the Potomac for smallies and I'd say those are some of the harder hits I've had.

The one of the hardest hit I have had and landed was this 5lb this past May with my buddy MCS. I was quickly reeling in my frog to set up for another cast and as soon as I was going to lift the frog out of the water this bass came up right against the boat and slammed my frog!! 

 

5lbs Everglades bass

 
Decent fish, could have sworn after the water cleared it was going to be bigger....  :eyebrows:

To date the hardest hit I have ever had was on an alabama rig this past year.  The bass was just over 2 lbs BUT man ... you would have thought it was a 10 lber.  Nearly took the rod out of my hand.  What a surprise.

Regardless of the size, bass punish an Alabama Rig.

+1  :-)

 

I had a big one do the same thing.  Startled me so much I almost screamed like a girl.  Ok... I might have screamed like a girl.  Maybe.

 

 

Tight lines,

For fresh water, probably a bass I hooked 

a few years back. Heard a splash behind me, 

turned and saw where a bass had attacked a

school of shad.

 

Threw a Senko there and BANG!! Unfortunately

I never saw her as she was such a fighter and

kept my rod bent, line taught then SNAP, it 

pulled so hard my 10 lb (new) Yo-Zuri Hybrid 

leader just snapped.

While we were trolling offshore, we went through some grass and had to pull in lines to make sure everything was clear...I picked up a rod to bring it in and a blackfin exploded on the bait and started peeling drag, I'm lucky I was able to hold on to the rod!

Hardest hit was on my PBLMB. 6lbs. 6oz. Hit the scatter rap so hard last summer that it just about doubled over my medium heavy rod. Was a great day!!

I've also had some dinks give good effort too :-)

Ten years ago I was fishing Weston, Florida from the bank, and saw vertical bars positioned in what looked like a bed, on a huge flat. It was out at the edge of my casting distance. I only had worms with me but I noticed that anytime I got close to the bed, the vertical bars would move. After about the 20 times of hitting the worm and moving it to the side an 8 pound peacock slammed the bait. This was my first time hooking a big peacock and new immediately it was not a largemouth bass. It blasted the bait with vengeance, and immediately took a 30 yard run off to one side. Then it made two huge jumps, doing complete flips, and then it ran another 30 yards back toward the bed. At that time I was using 20 pound braid and needed it to land this fish through all the weeds. Once you hook a good size peacock it is like hooking a snook, with long runs and jumps. They fight and just never stop including once you land them. They are a true treasure of the fish world. We are so luck to have them down here in South Florida. It was a day I will never forget.

Bank fishing during the spawn. In a super shallow cove to skinny for a boat .Quiet amazing seeing the fish hit so violently and feeling the rod doubled over.

Yes, that permit was caught at the inlet.  The amazing thing was I caught it inside the inlet, not on the beach, a habitat they don't frequent.  Secondly I caught it on a bucktail, normally they feed on crabs.  I ran this permit down on foot 300 yds with 10 knot inlet current, then pulled it in at the ICW in the back.  One of my most memorable catches.

 

Yesterday was bass fishing at it's best for me as far as strikes go. About 8:30 am fishing my community pond with my ul and top water.  Not a ripple on the water I land about 6 of them within 30 minutes, estimating 4-5lbs each.  Each strike was more violent than the previous one, this was some fun stuff.  Fast forward to the afternoon I head out to a canal that produces some very good fish, caught 4 or 5 with nothing over 8", go figure.

I was in the back of a small cove about 8 years ago.  I was using a fluke around some grass, and the line started really moving toward the front of the cove.  When I set the hook the fish didn't seem to notice and just kept heading out of the cove.  The drag was working and the rod was bent when all of a sudden the fluke came flying out of the water.  The line didn't break and the hook didn't bend.  I guess I didn't have a good hookset.  Sometimes when I am fishing that lake, and I go back into that cove I replay that hit over and over in my head.

I have had a few bass fishing that shocked me as to its force.

 

The two big ones I caught were "soft" hits.

 

Go figure.

My hardest hit by far was a 28lb king salmon.  I was throwing a glow in the dark casting spoon at about 4:30am on lake Ontario.  I had a medium retrieve on the spoon, and BAM! It felt like I hooked the bumper of a car going about 30mph in the opposite direction!  The drag was on pretty heavy for the initial hookset, so that added to the impact as well.  Not the biggest salmon I've caught, but it was the only one I've caught on a spoon and it was one hell of a hit!!

 

If anyone ever gets the opportunity (if you havent already) to fish for Salmon, do it!
