    This morning my brother in law called me up all excited about his brand new abu 7000i he JUST BOUGHT. So I told him to come on over and we'll line it up and hit the river for a few hours if he wanted. Let me tell you he was excited but all that changed in a hurry. We started drifting 10 mins in we had 2 fish then i got hung up and so did he, i believe on the same sunk tree. We circled around and tried to break them free will no luck i told him to get the paddle out of the rod locker to break the lines free. Then it happened . The rod locker lid flew open and my 2 bait rods and my brothers 209 flew in the river. :angry:We both lunged at them and i miss but he didn't he grabbed all three as they where sinkin out of site.:big_smile: As i turned around to my rod and his BRAND NEW " 10 mins old" Abu 7000i I saw just my rod. :crazy: His took a trip to the bottom of the river
    I marked the spot on my gps where my rod was hung and then we tried with no luck to snag his I guess ill spend some time trying to snag it tomarrow. Wish me luck.

    btw he really got upset when i told him finders keepers :big_smile:

    lost a lantern off of the top of a hard top on the pontoon. Got this bright idea to get it back with the throw net. Wound up catching quantum big iron on a berkley series one rod and throwing it in. It was in 25' of water, 4 1/2 hours later got them both back. Takes a lot of time and patients. At the time I hadnt caught a fish. after I got them back I decided I wasnt leaving till we caught a fish. Moved dropped the anchor and bam a double. It was time to go home my luck couldnt possably get any better. However on the other hand I had a throw net come off of my hand in 8' of open water marked it and drug it forever and never did hook anything.

    I told him one good thing is that it was hung and hung good so it should still be there.

    I bet he free spools next time he gets hung and puts his rod down :wink:

    I flat out hate the reds! i grew up in southern illinois. And my family bleeds cardinal red. So i grew up a cadinal fan. and when i moved up here i was an outcast cuz i stuck with the red birds....Its the same way with college basketball. Im a Kentucky Wildcat fan and bleed blue. Not a very good thing in a hick town with nothing but IU fans :confused2:

    Man that sucks. Good luck on snagging it back. Almost had it happen a few times but somehow always managed to catch them. The closest call I dove in right after I dropped it and somehow I got it before it got too deep. It prolly would have been cheaper to buy a new rod and reel after I forgot about the cell phone in my pocket.
