Flying fish...

Recommended Posts

So we were fishing a Metro lake on sunday morning. Sitting in about 10 ft of water. I was using fairly heavy gear:

7' MH Kistler Helium LTA

TD Fuego L

50lb PP

I feel a nice bite and set my hook...... SNAPPPP!!!!! nothing. I couldnt believe it. I turn around and start my F bombs.. *$&&#&%$ this and &@^&$ that. about 5 seconds later, I hear a splash, something wet hits my right leg, I look around on the boat and there's the bass... with my jig in its mouth. It jumped up, Im guessing trying to throw the jig, and landed in the boat. I got my lucky 3/8 All Terrain in black/blue back along with a nice 2.5lb bass.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! My buddies and I laughed for a good couple minutes about that. Still counts as a landed bass right?

Hahaha... I dunno if it counts as a landed bass or not, but that is a great story!

It only counts as a landed bass if it was legaly hooked!

I say he hooked it legally... grin There was just one slight problem, the line didn't stay connected! crazy Great story, and I'm glad you got your lure back!

Now that is a lucky lure. I'll give you 10 points for the landing but I have to take off half point for snaped line, good enough for GOLD.

Holy cow. Very lucky! I lost a fish this weekend that jumped over 3.5 foot reeds, Seeing that was cool but losing that 4-5 pound fish hurt.

Yeah, I think it was a bad knot. Cause I remember, we were coming up on some nice looking water and I had to get my jig in the water as fast as possible. So I tied a half-a$$ed knot, not my usual palomar. Lesson learned.

Ill only use that jig now when the fishing is extra tough.

Holy cow is right. Wow! What a hook set! 50lb power pro? Either that Powerpro is cheep s#@% or you get way to excited. I know I wouldn't want to be anywhere near you when you get a fish on.

Calm down!

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
