Perfect Hook Set

Ever catch one of these on accedent?

Recommended Posts

(pond)

After a few casts and a leaf or two I got caught up in some line...

Since the line that I was stuck on was so far out I figured someone had got stock on some brush or a rock. Thats never good because, at least for me, I end up breaking my line as well.

Slowly I reel the line in and try to figure out what I was dragging in.

I eventually get my lure to shore, look down into the water and from the looks of it I thought I was dragging in a stick.

I untangle the line from my hook and pull a broken rod and reel from the water...

I am thinking someone, some how broke their rod, got pi$$ed and threw the rod and reel into the water.

One night we watched our neighbor lose his pole to a catfish in the pond. 5 minutes later my bro-in-law reeled it in by sheer luck  ;D I told him he should have made my neighbor pay to get the combo back  ;D

Pulled in a few nice lures attached to branches and weeds but no rod and reel combos yet. Probably just a matter of time:o)

I kept the reel

Cleaned it very well

Re-lubed it with a little lithium type grease and some parts with oil...

Reels pretty smooth

The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have the quick anti-reverse

May keep it as a spare or put it on a rod for my wife...

She likes dropping the reel/rod onto the rocks cramming it into the trunk etc...

I rather have her beat that one up then one a payed for

I caught a hole combo once, kept the rod and chucked the reel.

i caught a hooded sweatshirt up in northern wi once.  Washed it up and wore it for a few years.  :D  

There was chapstick in the front pocket too....you could see how far the water had penetrated over time when you ran the stick all the way out....so my dad cut off the end......AND USED IT!!!  lol......nasty!  we never let him live it down either.  I mean, I felt kind of weird wearing the sweatshirt...but using the chapstick??!?!   ;D ;D ;D

We were fishing a pay lake for catfish, my brother caught a stringer with three nice size cats on it, the guy across the lake had lost it, all he wanted back was the stringer, he let my brother keep the fish.
