    The girls called me out to the bathroom at work this morning and there was a mouse swimming around in the commode. I had a brilliant idea after reading Flatheads post on some of his methods. I have a spot that I go to during the day sometimes at lunch. So I have this little sqeaker in my bait net and had some string that I tied aound his middle.... that's another story. I tossed him out about 5 feet and he went downstream into a snag, and as he was strugglin to try to climb up he was hit.... flat jumped out of my shoes.

    Will post pics later.

    LOL , that's funny. I've always wondered if that would work.

    Now for the big question ....are you gonna be buying bait from the pet store next trip out ?

    I don't do anything with small buoys! I am a Democrat!

    Seiously it was a challenge. I had some regular twine and with him thrashing around in the net I kinda got a little chokehold on his neck. Those little mice can be wiggly. I tied him to my 8/0 Gamakatsu Circle hook.

    When that Flattie hit, he hit it hard and like to scared me to death! The whole scene played out in about 10 minutes.

    It was a great lunch!

    Ok, now I have to ask a couple of questions. That little mouse didnt have a dog with hime did he? When was the last time you were at Disneyworld? Did it have on funny shoes? Was there a female mouse in his presense? Did he have larger ears than normal for a mouse.

    I use to use mice bass fishing ponds. I would catch them in the feed barn, in a 5 gallon bucket. They were doing to do the deep 6 anyway, so this just ended their misery quicker. I would take and throw out pretty good logs around the pond then take one with and toss one about 2 feet from the log and let him swim up log.

    But I swear, I never put a chasity belt on one.......or dressed one up in a pink outfit.......

    Nice lunch break Shawn. But bro, would've been easier to slip a rubber band around the mid section, then just hook under the rubber band. Just some food for thought in case the opportunity presents itself again. Anyway nice catch...:cool2:

    I learned about mice for bait when i was a kid. A buddy and I were wading around a pond behind my house and we found a beaver hut. being brats we climbed on top of it and started jumping around trying to piss the beavers off and make them come out. suddenly a nest of mice hit the water and started swimming. I was content with watching them swim across this pond when all of the sudden one of the biggest bass I've seen to this date boiled the water and swallowed some of the mice. since then when I find mice in dog food, buckets, etc, etc, I'll use them for bait. I've caught a few cats on them too. never anything over 10 pounds though. one thing about fishing the river with them. Gar Love them too !!

    You can get more action out of a mouse if you pull one leg off just before casting it out. They will swim around franticly and leave a blood trail that will help bring in the big ones.:wink:
