Is it possible to catch the same fish twice without releasing it the first time? Take a look at this picture from Saturday's trip. We were fishing about 40 feet deep with Danny King's punch bait with several rods in rod holders and we were holding some of the rods as well. One of the guys felt a bite and set the hook on a fish. The rod next to him in a holder got a bite as soon as he set the hook. Someone else grabbed that rod and began reeling the fish up. As soon as it came up we noticed that they actually caught the same fish. This channel cat must have ate the bait on the rod in the holder and went undetected. Then it hit the adjacent rod and wasn't so lucky. I've never seen this before.
