I had a friend whos line got crossed with mine while pulling up a crappie. I am trying to untie the lines and he( knowing that his line is in my hands) tries to set the hook on the fish he felt tugging on his line..I now have no problems with snaking his line if he isnt paying attention..more for me to catch.

OR- everytime you have a knot or tangle in your line your messing with, the line in the other hole gets a bite. Everytime, never fails.

every time my wife calls, as soon as I answer, I get a hit. Frustrating, but I do get fish.

That's why my cell phone would always end up in the bottom of the lake. Accidentally of course wink

Wifey stopped calling for the most part now.

That use to irritate me alot too when my wife calls when I am fishing so I finally did something smart. I purchase a blue tooth ear piece so now when she calls all I have to do is hit the button on my ear and I am hands free to talk to her. I don't have to reach for my phone or keep one of my hands occupied by holding the phone to my ear, I can talk and catch fish at the same time without missing a beat.

How about this one guys.

Me and my brother were fishing for northern's in about 6 feet of water in a eddy off the river, and he left the house for a second to go out side and as soon as he left his pole went down the hole! He came back and I told him what happened and he didn't believe me, and then about 2 minutes later I was getting a bite and I set the hook and brought up a snot rocket with another piece of line in its mouth? I was his jig so I pulled up the line and His pole came up my hole.

That was a weird day.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
