Zack (arojekt) myself and a friend of ours headed out this last Saturday evening at our local lake armed with worms, rods, and a cast net. We wanted to net some small bait fish to go for some small catfish that we knew were in there but try as we might we just couldn't net a thing. We knew we had enough worms to last us a while so we just gave up on the net and got fishing. A couple of hours passed with no luck, with the sun going down and the wind starting to pick up the fish finally started to bite. At first just nibbles nothing solid but it was enough to get us fired up. After about 10min of little nibbles and jerks a fish destroyed my bait and ran with the hook, I didn't even have to set it the fish did all the work. When we got him out the water he was only around a pound or so but it had put up a good fight and i was just glad to catch something. Another 10 or so minutes ticked by and then i got another insane bite and as i was reeling it in when Zack hooked one up we got em both in mine just a little bull head, and Zack pulled out a small channel cat. I passed my rod to our friend Alex to hold while i brought in my other line i had out. I started reeling it in when when all of a sudden it got real heavy and started slowly going back in forth in the water not enough to be a fish but i brought it in hard just in case, when i had it in about 5ft from the dock i saw what looked like a snake come to the surface and flipped out because the last thing i wanted to deal with was a water moccasin in the middle of the dark, but once we had it under a near by street light we saw that it was in fact a fresh water eel. It was around 1'8" and made great bait once we had finally cut it up, those suckers have insanely tough skin. After we had all the lines rigged back up just a few more minutes went by when Zack hooked up again this time on a small mouth bass while he had been using eel for bait. This amazed all of us because none of us thought that a small mouth would go after cut bait let alone cut eel. While Zack and I were dealing with the small mouth Alex hooks up and starts yelling for one of us to get the net quick, I just thought he was BSin but when i saw his rod bend and jerk i knew he had a decent fish on his hands when we got him in the net it turned out he was a big blue a few inches over two feet and weighed a bit over a 5 1/2lbs. which is pretty huge for the small lake we were at. We caught basically one of everything in that lake that is worth catching and that big blue sure did taste good on the grill with Alex's recipe. i just thought i would share this odd night of fishing with all you guys at the B.O.C Nick.
