WELL,This is the 1st for me!I was fishing 2 days ago and I was fishing for cats as usual,on bottom with brim head and I was triming back some limbs that were out over the water that was in my way.When my bell on the rod started dinging,I looked around and my rod was bent over double,almost touching the water!So I ran over and jerked back on the rod,Then the rod jerked back on me!OH YEAH! COME TO PAPA! Well,he shot down river just as hard and fast as he could go!My drag whineing,REIIIIIIIING,He shot parelle with the bank getting my line caught up in the limbs I was trying to prune back out of the way!When all of a sudden he stop! but still pulling like crazy!I thought my line had become snagged on the inside of the cap or something,I poped the cap and he had run my line slap out!I just relined it with new 20 pound test earlier,thank goodness,I then worked my line out of the tree limbs and all of a sudden he quit pulling,He had me caught under something,well I have learned over the yrs when this happens,its best to just set and wait,let the fish come out on his own. After about 2 mins sure enough,my line went slack and started back up river at a very,very fast pace!Well after about 30 mins of fighting this is what i caught!-15lb 4oz-33 inch long SRIPER BASS!! GO FIGURE!
