Most Likely A Once In A Lifetime Catch

Recommended Posts

So I was out fishing some fish cribs on a lake I had never fished before the other day. I had lost 1 bass and had another one rip my creature bait off on back to back casts. I decided to change my profile a bit and threw on an old jelly worm and quickly fired my bait back out there. As I'm letting it sink to the bottom, my line starts moving sideways, so I reel down and set the hook. I expected to feel some resistance from a bass, but instead my weight and worm came up to the surface and I saw my bait with something small skip across the surface. Thinking I just lost a little fish I reeled up quickly and my line came up to the top basically skiing across the surface. I flip it in and this is what I found.

LOL that is odd.

 

I once lassoed a crappie . The hook went around it and snagged the line and pulled tight .

That's a little wacky ~ 

 

It's like he went for a little ride on the jelly worm express . . . .

You just might have come up with a new way to catch bluegill :)

I wonder if it was trying to attack your bait or just happened to swim between the gap...very odd but cool.

 My girlfriends biggest northern was somewhat lassoed. It blew up on a frog and took it down head first, the line ran through the mouth and hooked around the jaw hinge where it extends past the joint. Both hooks were pulled up tight on the front of the mouth and keeping the line tight kept it locked on. Also, did it with a northern a few years ago. I was flipping a small grass mat and it hit the weight which wasn't pegged. Line went through the mouth and the hook had caught the line coming out the other side of the mouth and both sides had hooked around the jaw bone. Crazy stuff but this was definitely a new one!

Yeah, it's the ol' trap'em in the gap pattern! 0.00000000000001% of the time it works EVERY time haha.

Yep.... That won't happen again.

Just like my son when he was little, he spun a penny and when it stopped spinning it stayed upright. Never will we see that again.

it's crazy the things you snag sometimes. Just in the past year I caught a huge frog (on a frog), a big pearl mussel, a diamond back water snake, 3 snapping turtles, a soft-shell turtle, a catfish on a wacky Senko, and a gar on a spook.

I had a 5lb channel cat go for a topwater frog. It missed, bit my line, started rolling on top of the water and I reeled her in with about ten wraps of line around her, lure hanging past her tail.

That's awesome! Sounds kind of like the time I took a free throw and it bounced  straight up off the back of the rim and bounced about 3-4 more times and it came to rest right on the flat spot on the back of the rim.

I once pulled in a nice bass to find that the hook had entered through his gills, out his mouth, and hooked his lip.  Strange but true.

I caught a bass once on a T rig that the hook bend had wedged against it's bottom jaw and the hook eye was wedged against the roof of it's mouth, propping it's mouth open but it didn't have the slightest bit of the hook stuck in it.

Today while i was fishing an old farm pond with some big bass in it i was using a craw colored crankbait and felt a bump so i lightly set the hook and started pulling dead weight, so i thought i had caught a stick or something but as i got it close to the bank it started pulling. it ended up being a big snapping turtle luckly he came unhooked without me having to remove the bait, he was actually hooked in the mouth too so i guess that crankbait looked appetizing lol.
