Flying fish...

12 posts in this topic

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?

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.

I think your new tag line should be "Snap....Splash...Flop, Flop, Flop....dang there's my Jig."

I agree with sstracker, you should get the fish and the jig mounted just for the story!

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!
