    I know this sounds strange, but it did happen. I was fishing at Fall River Resevior, Fall River, Kansas when I was at the young age of 14. There is a retaining wall below the dam and people would wade out and line up in front of the wall and cast into the waterfall, with 1/4 oz doll flies and catch drum. I saw 2 guys hook the same fish , and they were fighting against one another. What a funny sight. When they got the fish in, there lines had got tangled together and the fish sucked in both jig. About the same time another guy caught a 37# flat on a yellow doll fly. We had a pretty exciting day.
    How bout your crazy stories.

    I was trout fishing in lake Don padro in CA Its in the bay area close to Oakland. I was almost limited out and at the time the limit was 8. I hooked a small trout maybe 5-6 inches or so and almost had it in when a bass about 2 or so lbs ate it and started stripping line. It didn\'nt fight too hard but i was on light tackle and it was a good fight. When I got it about 8 ft or so from the shore a Channel cat came up and ate the bass. Yea yea I know bulldoodoo right? But it actualy happened and after fight ing the channel that probably went 10-15 lbs on 8 lb line I almost got it, just as I started to pull it up on the shore my line snapped and away it went. I was around 15 and the only one with me was my dad and of course he was about 50 ft up the shoreline so I have no witnesses but I know it happened. Wish I coulda brought it in and then I could've showed everyone.
