BigFish and I went out last night, and man we had a good evening, but it was weird as well. We caught 7 bass and then netted a bucket of shad and headed to our flattie hole. BigFish landed a 25lb flattie (he might post pics later) right off the bat, and then it got kinda strange. My line took off during the landing of his fish, but then stopped quickly. I thought nothing of it, and then after all the ruckus of weighing/pictures of his fish, I thought I'd better check my bait. Well, I started pulling, and darn it if I wasn't hung on a snag. I pulled for a minute and then handed BigFish the rod so he could pull it furthur towards the other end of the boat. After a moment of pulling, he hands the rod back to me, and in a calm voice says, "You'd better catch this fish." I'll be darned if there wasn't a fish tugging on the other end! Apparently, it had gulped the bait and just sat still. It was probably 4-5 lbs. Then, just when I thought the weirdness was over... My other rod took off, and I set the hook. I felt pressure and was excited. After a minute or two of pulling, I realized I had nothing but a big stick. I managed to get the stick to the boat, and realized...it wasn't a stick - it was a fishing rod and reel. ?? I manged to untangle my line from this horribly worn fishing rode, and was searching for the end of my line when I realized it was still in the water, so I start reeling in, only to find that my line was being tugged! Would you believe I landed a 7-8lb flattie on that same line that caught the fishing pole? We had a blast, but I have to admit I've never had a stranger evening.
