What the ...??!!

Recommended Posts

What in the world is wrong with this picture? Caught this fish on Baby Brush Hog. Do fish do this often? This is a first for me.

It doesn't happen a lot but it does happen, especially if the fish have been feeding a lot recently.

About three weeks ago I was in a local tourney where everyone caught fish that threw up after being caught. Every fish caught was so stuffed it was surprising anyone caught a fish. The shad hatch was about 3-4" long and EVERYWHERE. The fish weren't hungry, but were all caught on reaction bites.

It's hard to tell from your pic, but it may be that your fish wasn't hungry either but had a stuffed belly and was caught by reaction bite.

I've had quite a few fish spew their lunch on me. It's pretty messy.

I have had a number of bass spew in my livewell.You would be suprised at the size bluegill even a small bass will eat.

Schooling white bass or stripes are worst at this.I have heard of guides that don't even let them in the boat they're so bad about heavin'.

Bluefish throw baby menhaden all over the boat.  Trick is to clean it immediately or it becomes bulletproof with a little salt and sun.

That really sucks if it happens on the way to the scales and you end up out of the money by a few hundreths of a pound. I curse those dam digital weigh in scales. Earlier this year as I was transfering fish from the livewell to the carry bag, my big bass heaved a good sized crawdad, won the tournament but lost big bass by .01 pounds.

Reminds me of earlier this year; I had hooked a really nice Northern strain bass, which spit up a half digested trout carcuss, of about 12". So, I net the bass and I'm thinking... "Now if I weigh this thing and it weighs like 9.6 lbs, I'm picking that slimy, half digested trout back up, and shoving it back down its thoat" ! {don't know that I'd really do that.. probably not good for the fish... but I'd sure be tempted :-)}

Anyway, it ended up going 10.3 lbs "without" the trout :-) So it was all good.

I think if I were a bass, I'd spit my previous meal "at the fisherman who just stuck a hook in my mouth" ! :-)

Peace,

Fish
