    How many has had this happen?>
    You go to your favorite fishing spot ,walk down the dam ,throw your pole out and before you set it down it almost gets pulled out of your hands?.

    Thats what happened this morning, got to the lake this morning around 6:25 and about 6:40 on the very first cast I caught this 39 1/2 lb Blu, man I could'nt hardly beleive it almost got my pole right out of my hand. Caught me off gaurd; I hav'nt had my second cup of coffee:roll_eyes: it took me about 25 minutes to get him in. Pulled like a pitbull after a cat lol.
    going back this weekend and try it again.

    I've had that happen before too. Where I casted out and turned around to talk to someone with the rod still in my hand. Next thing you know Iam almost going out the back of the boat. It's a real eye opener, but alot of fun.

    All fish over 10lbs get released to grow to the size of the one I want ,and fish for, A State Record wouldn't be to much to want. LOL:cool2:

    Okay I was just checking cause some of these guys keep the fish when they are that big and we know the many reasons not to do that. Thanks for letting him go.
