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?

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!

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
