PondScum Posted May 26 Share Posted May 26 Hello! I'm new here but I really just needed to come on, mostly to vent, but also ask for y'alls thoughts. I know there's plenty of posts in here about losing fish and people asking if they'll bite again, but I need to get this out. There's been this monster bass I've been chasing for weeks in this small park pond. It never seemed very interested in anything thrown at it, but today I finally hooked it on a live bluegill. It took it in about a foot of water right in front of me. As I was landing it, it was in my hands, the line snapped and I lost my footing and took a tumble headfirst into the pond. So here I am, soaked in pond water and without the fish I've been after for weeks. So I'm obviously ticked off and utterly defeated. My question is do we think this fish will ever take a bait again or let alone show its face? I reckon being hooked and dragged halfway ashore and then having a 170lb monster d**n near fall on top of you has to be traumatic. I wouldn't eat again if I was that fish. But I'm not a fish and fish don't have feelings. Or do they? This is a very small pond and this has to be the biggest fish in there. Everything else I've seen are 0-1lb bass and a plethora of bluegill. Any insights, or condolences, would be helpful. Thanks! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
