Re: What have you caught on accident?

Recommended Posts

Geeze fishing Lake Erie I've caught one of everything! lol

- Carp, Catfish, Gar, Pike, Musky, Sheephead, Walleye, Perch, Rock Bass, Bluegill (on a Hula Popper once), brown trout, chinook salmon and even bowfin (not on Lake Erie).

Non - Fish - Snapping Turtle, Condom lol, Wallet, a bumper of an old F-150, a few tires, a shoe, underwear, and once I got a sheephead that actually had two jointed Rapalas stuck in either side of his mouth! That was quite a lucky fish to catch lol. Oh and in Florida I accidentally snagged a little gator foot, luckily with only a small bare hook. He decided to keep the hook.  ;)

I caught a baby gill on a baby torpedo.  The gill was smaller than the bait, and I didn't know I had it on the hook till I got it into the boat.  Tritonman and his son had a good laugh at me for MONTHS!!

Wish we had a camera that day...lol

Last summer I thought I had the bass of a life time on.  He wrapped me around a tree that was 6-7 foot down.  After 25 mins of trying to get it loose she finally came up.  And of course it was a 10 lb channel cat.  He sure was the greenest looking catfish under water.  I am also well known for the extreme size of tree and log bass I catch.

I have caught a perch on a spinnerbait, plenty of bluegill on the spinnerbait as well, and not to mention the number of catfish on Rat L Traps and other crankbaits.

Two of the nicest Channel Cats I've ever caught were on the same outing from a large stock pond in my two-man boat; both went over 5 pounds:

Catfish #1- was caught on a black chugger topwater.

Catfish #2- was caught on a spinnerbait

I put them on the stringer to take home and they towed my little boat around like a team of horses. ;D

I've caught many other channel and mudcats on Berkely powerworms and thought they were massive bass when they thumped it hard.

And Rich:

Are you sure you weren't fishing over a garbage dump?  ;D

and, I hope you let that other fish go after removing the Rapala's.  It looks like it was his destiny to get away.

I was fishing a zara spook and the darn thing spotted it and made a rush to it and grabbed it. Then the stupid thing started to fly off with it. I got mad and snapped my rod and the thing dropped in midflight and hit the water.

        I  caught a big bluegill on a four inch senko. I can not figure out how he got the 1/0 widegap hook in his mouth. I have also caught a rock bass on the same lure. I have also caught a three foot log that I was sure was a musky. That was a big let down.  :'(

I found this at the bassmaster website in the little notes at the bottom the articles.

Weirdest catch

"The weirdest thing I ever caught was a body," South Carolina pro Jason Quinn said. "It happened on Lake Norman when I was 14 years old on a Zara Spook. I was fishing a point and a lot of boat traffic was coming by. I was walking a Spook on a point and all of a sudden, when a wave went down, this guy's head appeared. He had anchors tied to his legs and they said he had been in the water for two weeks. He apparently committed suicide."

My dog!!!  It was the first time I ever took him with me fishing.  It was early in the morning and I threw a popper before I got out on the water from the boat ramp.  Of course, my yellow lab jumped in after it and retrieved it for me >:(:o >:(.

He managed not to get hooked thank god.

I was trolling for walleye on Deep Creek Lake and ended up coming about an ounce short of the Maryland State record pickerel.

Fishing for crappie below the dam here a while back and caught a 10lb+ gar on 4 lb test.  Took me about 15 minutes to reel him in and I had to constantly tweak my drag.  He was hooked in the side.   Not a prize fish-here anyway-but fun as heck!   I also figured out why there weren't any crappie still in that spot!

A good-sized muskie on a little crappie jig. I had him to the boat and he broke the 6 pound test line.
