The Horror!!!

Recommended Posts

Oh the horror!!!  :'(

Was fishing a YO-ZURI($8) it was the small sized one, freakin was killin em with it in the pond twitching it like a dieing minnow. Probably got hit 20 times and realed in about 10. thats normal since its got small hooks.

Then it happend. BAM!!! I nail the monster of the day, with 4# line he put up a decent fight. Finnaly got him to shore, and rolled him onto the bank into a puddle. I go down to grab his lower lip when he gave a good hard flutter. i pulled my hand back as to not get the hooks jammed into my hand, the line on the rod goes limp and the fish jumps back into the water.

Lost the big one of the day and the $8 lure, all because i was to lazy to cut a bit of line and re-tie the lure  :'(

dont let this happen to you!!!!  ;D

I fish 4# test often in open water, but I retie after every fish or hang up.  I also don't fish expensive lures on the 4# test.  Learned the hard way too.

Thanks for sharing.

Ouch! I feel your pain.

Reminds me of the time I was saltwater fishing with my father in law and I wanted to show him the action on my brand new Kastmaster lure (also $8) I flipped it over the side close to the boat and started reeling it in. A Bluefish came out of nowhere and slammed that lure its teeth ripped right through my line. Bye bye lure. All I could say was Doh!

What do all us old farts say on a regular basis ? check the condition of your line and retie oftenly. Well, you learned the lesson the hard way, we hope that it will never happen again.

The Devil knows more from being old than from being the Devil.

Your story has happened to all of us that preach retying often....  we were as stubborn as you before we lost large/nice catches.

Seriously, it takes about 30 seconds to cut and retie.   ;)

that has happened to me before. when i did a lot of ul fishing. but when you do pull that 6lb bass in on 4lb line its totally worth it. i did it many years ago. on a frog bodied beetle spin. the stupid thing i did on that one was, i was a kid (11)and tried to make a stringer with a stick and kite string. i stuck it in the mud and shortley after i watched the 2nd biggest fish of my life swim away with a stick sticking sticking out of his gills
