This Ever Happened To You

Recommended Posts

As some of you know, I have been fishing the same little pond close to where I work about twice a week. There is a great amount of brush all over the bottom, and I have lost several lures over the last month. Yesterday I got all snagged up in some line from a lure I had previously lost. I got my jig untangled from the line, and I thought "I wonder if I can get whatever lure back that is on the end of this? I messed with it a while, then it started pulling back! I pulled it in hand over hand, and there was about a 13" bass on the end, and a $5 jig I had lost a couple of weeks ago. The bass didn't look like he had been hooked very long, maybe even bit it while I was messing with it, but the hook was run all the way through his cheek.

I'm sure this is not the only time this has ever happened, but a first for me.

Happened to me a few times using Senkos, I get em hung up on rocks when shore fishing on my river. I think once they get snagged they act as like a drop shot rig and just hang there freely and fish hit from pure reaction. It makes the bait look natural and the bass can't resist! Gotta love pull'in one out when you least expect it, oh wait that's fishing.....

It happened to me once, I was using a baitcasting rod and got a birdsnest but the lure went like 5 yards into the water, once I got the tangle out I reeled it in and all the sudden I felt a fish on it, ended up catching a nice bass

Once, I was jig fishing in the spring and I felt like I snagged on something. I thought I got out of the snag and let my line go slack to continue on hopping/dragging the bottom. Well my line started to dart off to the side, so I set the hook. I thought, Man, that must have been a pretty bad hook set because it felt like I pulled on bungee cord. I finally figured out that I still have a fish on the end and when I got it to shore I found what I snagged. My jig had hooked on to one side of a three way swivel (the part you tie to) and on another end of the three way swivel was about a 4' leader and a rainbow trout. :(

I've done it several times. I like it when I get snagged and as soon as it pops loose it gets hammered! B)

Caught fish while snagged, caught fish while taking back lash out, caught fish while lighting a cigarette, caught fish while peeing over the side of the boat, & yes caught fish while sleeping!
