What Is The Weirdest Thing You've Caught???

Recommended Posts

I was top water fishing the other day and a Blue Herring flew right up to my lure and tried to take it and fly away. We literally played tug of war for a good 10 seconds. :blink: Then it tried to spit it out of it's mouth but it was hooked on the trebbles. It finally shook it loose. I'm sure it injured it's tongue.

That was a trip! :lol:

Has anyone else caught anything weird like that while trying to fish??? :)

I hooked into what I thought was a really good fish. I mean it dove down and pulled hard, then dove right, then darted left, then dove down again. I fought it hard and screamed for the net!

....until I saw it was a Pringles can!

I've caught several seagulls freelining live shad for wipers during the winter time. The most frustrating part of the whole this is that the shad are usually on the surface because a wiper is chasing them but the gulls get them first :angry: Good thing is they usually don't fight much when you try to unhook them and never seem any worse off after being caught.

The wildest thing I have ever seen fishing was out on a Salmon trip in the Pacific. My grandfather had hooked a nice 25 to 30lb Salmon and fought it with in about 10 yards of the boat. Out of no where a Sea Lion grabbed a hold of the Salmon and with in seconds a 15 foot plus White Shark nailed the Sea Lion right in front of us. This happened so close the the boat the Shark actually hit the down rigger line.

That is very cool, tough story to beat.

I'll give high praise to anyone that knows what this is ( don't google it, lol )

I was deep cranking one day when the rod loaded up and pulled back. Fish on! Put up a modest fight all the way back to the boat, I had the net handy when I finally got a look at the critter. A very large size 12 flip flop hooked on the toe thong.

I once hooked an osprey on a Zara Spook Had a pretty good aerial battle goin' on for a few seconds but, thankfully, he threw the lure. I wasn't looking forward to trying to unhook a large, angry raptor.

I have hooked into 3 crocodiles, an African fish eagle, a rock that turned into a hippo as well as a large snake on a deerhair mouse. My Pb however must be the jersey cow I landed on my spare outfit while wading a small farm pond. I had left the spare rod on the side leaning against some brush. The cow was solidly hooked on the left corner of the mouth after munching on the scrub. It took nearly an hour to corner the cow and retrieve my favourite (at that time only) rapala. -

I have also managed to hook my unsuspecting and sunbathing wife trying to cast a fly for smallies on windy day but that is a long and complicated tale. Chris

The weirdest thing i ever caught was a baby duckling. (i know...i have no soul!) The best my wife and i could figure was that it had dove after the lure while flippin and pitchin near some over hanging shrubs. i thought momma duck was going to land on our heads. Anyways, the screaming duckling reeled in (awful excuse for a fight), hook removed, antibiotic applied and released back to momma duck!

I haven't really caught anything weird. But once my dad caught a smallmouth and a blue herring flew onto our boat and tried to take it from him. It was pretty entertaining.

Hooked and landed an osprey, seagull or some look-alike, and a water moccasin. The birds weren't on purpose, that osprey swooped out of no where and nabbed my popper. LOL, then he wouldn't fly away after I unhooked him, so I picked him up and gave him a toss, then he flew away, out of my hands. Felt good. A catfish on a spinnerbait? Is that weird?

I was night fishing with a plastic worm. Made my cast to the bank and I felt that tap/tap/tap. I rared back and set the hook on a Racoon. Man did it ever make a racket.
