    Okay, while at the Pay Pond w/ Flathunter on Sat night (SEE POST: http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21120) I got him VERY GOOD.

    Nothing but turtles were biting. Jack had to go "take care of business" and since it was daylight he had to go to a discrete spot. While he was gone, I told my wife "Watch This". I grabbed a blakc rope that was beside me, tied it to his rod holder & waited for the time to get right. By the time he got back it was almost dark. I waited another 30 minutes or so and started tugging on the rope. The rod holders are so heavy that I could not get the rod to actually look like a monster Cat bite, but it did look like a VERY AGRRESSIVE TURTLE BITE. I gave some light tugs, then some heavier tugs. Jack even got up a time or two & reeled in the rod to check his bait. An hour or so went by, then his wife came down on her way home from work. While he was talking to her I noticed that he was only 1/2 paying attention to his rod, so I started jerking the crap out of this rope. Man, his rod was bouncing like crazy. He was getting excited because I guess he thought he had the worlds largest Snapper on. This went on for 10 minutes or so, I was jerking so hard that the rope was leaving red marks on my hand. Finally my wife & I started cracking up & clued Flathunter into was what going on.

    Below is a pic of what it looked like when I 1st tied the rope to the rod holder.

    That's evil, your my kinda people. If you want to drive some folks crazy, we used to do this at bass tournaments, keep a hand full of screws and small bolts in your boat and idle up beside some one in a nice new fancy perfectly kept boat or walk up at the ramp or parking lot and start talking, when you get the chance just drop a few of the screws and/or bolts under his console. They'll spend hours and hours trying to figure out where they came from. It was easy for me cause I could alway pick up a few off the floor of my boat that had really fell out of something to use, but it drove some of the real perfectionists crazy. Had a 2 day tournament once and the guy parked next to us stayed in his boat under his dash every spare minute we were there trying to find where those screws came from.

    I do sort of the same thing to my buddies when we go fishing. I purposly have 4# clear line in my tacklebox. Lots of my friends just lean em on a brick, tacklebox, or cooler when fishing. I will tie the line to the bottem of the pole and jerk it for a while. It is always good for a laugh.

    lol, nice pranks... or u could also take a small bucket with the lid off and reel their pole in while they are gone and tie the bucket to it, then give it a good toss as hard as u can....helps to put a little water in it first, then make sure it sinks, then set it back down then tie string/rope to the pole and then tug on it some... when the go to reel it in they will get all excited... should feel like a big snapper lol
