strangest things caught?

Recommended Posts

I was curious to hear the odd things experienced or caught while fishing!

I seen someone hook a frog and another guy pull a fishing pole from the depths.

I pull in some broke off line with a live catfish still attached.

I'm sure this wont even scratch the surface of odd thing that have happen.

Caught numerous box turtles, but recently caught a MONSTER soft-shell turtle off the bottom of the licking river with a hotdog, released with no problem luckily.

Also caught a large water moccasin snake  :-? while wading in the rapids of the licking.

I have caught (snagged) a variety of strange stuff over the years.

I caught a tire, a pair of shorts, a few junky fishing poles, lots of sticks...but the wierdest thing I ever caught was a small rock. This little rock had a little hole in it and my crank bait's hook found it. The rock now rests in my wife's little aquarium. The funny part about catching this rock was that my friend caught 9 bass that day and all I got was a rock....I felt like Charlie Brown at Halloween. ;D

My son caught an Oscar in the everglades last year while we were LMB fishing. The guide said most people have them as fish tank pets and then when they get too big, they releae them into the wild. Then odly enough while fishing with a friend this summer, he also pulled up an Oscar. They can get pretty big in a large body of water.

I caught a 24 inch snapping turtle this past spring and promtly cut the line before landing it.

I have caught a number of old Mack dump truck parts at an old gravel pit I use to fish as a youngster, to inlcude an old air cleaner, dash board parts, and a tire or two

I caught a 5 pound note while fly fishing in England a few years back.

A 6 foot turtle off the coast of Gambia on a prawn - after 20 minutes I cut the line  , every time I thought I had him he would come up for air and then charge off revitalised !

I don't think the deck of that aircraft carrier is long enough to get that FA-18 up and flying.LOL

Switzerland is a small country, so we use small aircraft carriers. ;D

went to the beach this summer and caught a 3 foot eel, a skate, and I was fishing on a dock and I look down and me and my buddy saw two manatee swim underneath the dock. needless to say, we pulled in our lines pretty quickly.  :) ;D ;D

A backpack. We wanted to open it hoping there was a stash of money in it but it was way to slimy and smelled terrible.

A hat, a shopping cart and a seagull.  I've luckily just avoided beavers and otters but both have come very close to getting snagged.

A turtle, old shirt, tree limb with three cranks in it and fishing line that when I pulled in had a chatter bait I had lost earlier in the year.

A seagull, a 40 inch softshell turtle, several alligator snappers, a few rods, a catfish on a fly  :P, several newspapers, a padlock, an old tacklebox...

but the best of all was when i snagged some fishing line that i pulled up to find attached to a jig which was still in the mouth of a 4 pound bass my friend had lost earlier that day  ;D ;D ;D

I caught at least 1 rod and reel for about 4 years straight.  The streak ended this year :(.

One day a couple years ago while throwing a DD22 all day I brought up all sorts of stuff.  Notables were a few old Coors cans and a pair of bra and panties.  All were caught in about a 50 foot radius of one another. ;D
