Lost her…AGAIN


Recommended Posts

So I fished our church graveyard pond early . Decided to try live bait.
Some of you may recall last year I had fished there and set the hook on a fish that was around 10 inches . I had pulled him out of the water and when I took up the slack something had swallowed that fish . After a brief fight it got off . I couldn’t gain any line on it , and it was never hooked, but it was just hanging on to the small fish. I reeled in the small fish , and it had A lot of scales missing, which happens usually with bass and live bait. It felt huge for the brief time I had her.

I lost her again a couple months ago, when she broke the line on the hookset somehow. 
Today a big fish nailed a bream , so I caught one and Before I could get it in it got hammered right by the bank, but it bent the bream hook out. 
Threw out another bream and got this 2 pounder…

Threw out another one, and I immediately had a run. Got a great hookset, but she was angling parallel to the bank and began coming up to jump. Could not turn her in the time I had her. Right before she broke water, she came off , and the little weight ( only I thought at first )I had on flew over my head !

Another NOOOOO !  I tossed my rod a few feet. Thought it broke the 40 pound power pro, but it just pulled free somehow, still had the hook on too.

Im determined to catch this fish and won’t give up !

Dang it, Mike. I hooked my Moby this spring and I keep trying to catch her again, but she hasn't sniffed any of my lures. I'm amazed that you keep hooking your Moby!

I hope you get her Mike. It has become personal.

I'm chasing my Moby Dick too. She sits under a bush at the start of an outlet. The outflow river has good flow and is a tunnel of overhanging bushes, so if i were to be sucked into it, my rods would tangle terribly. I've hooked her three times and all three times, she roars out of the tunnel and plunges into reeds. I haven't come close to catching her, but I'll try again this morning.

I thought you said you already caught her once.

My fish is the same way . All 3 times she was near the main inlet from a little creek into the pond. There’s also a drain into the pond about 30 feet from the creek. 
A friends son caught a 13 pounder in there app. 10 years ago, so it has the history of big fish potential…

You're thinking of the big girl I caught at another pond this spring.
