The One That Got Away!

Recommended Posts

Fishing a local nature preserve pond today was throwing a rattle trap which haven't had any luck on. Got a real good something on lol. It stayed close to the bottom I never got it to the surface water is dark and about 3-5 foot deep. Fought a few mins then it went up under the Boardwalk and popped the hooks. So mad lol. Idk of it was a bass, or catfish or carp or what

Carp are usually snagged , stay on the bottom and make long , strong runs. Large Channels and flatheads also stay on the bottom, will often hit a rattling crankbait hard and fight steadily , with slow pulsating pulls on the rod. Blue Cats will spin in circles and you will end up with a lot of slime on your line .

I hate when that happens. I remember the first "big' one that got away. I didn't fight it correctly and he threw my trap. He wasn't that big, probably 2 1/2, but it broke my heart!

Anything I don't see that "cuts" my #40 braid or spits my hook I always say is a mudfish or a pickerel. I can't remember the last time I lost a bass :)
