Very lucky catch (I'll never forget this one!) Funny.


Recommended Posts

My buddy and I were fishing Sat. evening. He set the hook on what appeared to be a nice size fish. As he was pulling a very nice slab crappie through the hole his line broke, and ploop! the crappie fell right back down the hole. Before I knew what was going on my buddy dove to the floor with his arm into the hole!! (He's a very big guy, 320 lbs.easy.) He was shoulder deep into the hole and somehow he managed to get a hold of the fish and pin it to the underside of the ice, then he got a finger into it's gill and pulled his arm out of the hole with a dandy 2 lbs. crappie on the end of his finger. God was that a blast!! We about died laughing. I wish I would have had it on tape! Would have won the 10 grand for sure:) This was without a doubt the most amazing catch I've ever seen!! grin.gif

One Sunday afternoon I took a lady I was dating ice fishing. We were fishing with tip-ups. Her flag went up and she proceeded to pull a nice walleye through the ice. As she held the fish up over the hole by the line, the line broke and the fish fell back into the hole. She screamed and shoved her arm down the hole all the way to her shoulder to get the fish. She got a hold of the fish right by the face and dug her finger nails in to pull it back out of the hole. She held it up, just like an eagle with a fish in it's talons, with a huge smile on her face. I knew right then and there I had to marry that lady. So I did!! cool.gif

Good job on the crappie!!!

me and my cousin were fishing for northerns last year when he hooked what seemed to be a nice fish. about two minutes into the fight he got it close enough to the hole that i could see it was well over 7 lbs. the same time i saw the fish, the fish saw us and made one last drag-screaming run. thats all it took and his 6 lb. mono broke. Since i was already on the floor waiting to land the fish i instinctively reached down the hole and somehow got a hold of the line. The fish was pretty tired by then so i just "reeled" it in hand over hand. turned out to be 32 inches and 7 1/2 lbs. pretty descent considering how we managed to land it grin.gif
