Don't ya hate the feelin of losing a nice fish at the last second? Well yesterday me and a bud of mine Chris went fishin on the lake. I had set out a line for cats baited with nasty old smelly hotdogs. Meanwhile, i was fishin for bass/bream/crappie on an ultralight setup. Well, a lil crappie hit my topwater bumblebee crankbait, but it got off. Then i noticed my cat line gettin tight. I ran over and grabbed the rod, and i set the hook on that sucker three times, real hard. Im usin some double barbed hooks. WELL THAT SUCKER STARTED RUNNIN. I was expectin a 6-8 lb cat. i didn tnotice at the moment, but it was REALLY runnin for a cat. THe sun was glarin on the water, and it splashed at the surface, went back down. I noticed its mouth was huge for a cat. Then, the dern thing jumped right outta the water like a marlin or a bass-when i realized IT WAS A BASS! DANG BIG ONE TOO! But when it jumped, the thing threw my hook....needless to say, i couldnt sleep well last night. I'll be headin out there tonight so we'll see what happens.
