I am giving up Fishing!!!!!! I put in at hwy 231 boat raqmp in Lebanon and headed up river to the mouth of Cedar Creek. Baited up my rod & reels with cut skipjack and tossed them out. This is the first time that I have fished this method as most of you know I usally jug fish. One rod & reel had 65 pound test with a 7/0 mustad hook and about a four or five inch thick skip steak. I got two good hits on the smaller reels but missed both of them. I was about to call it a day due to the misting cold rain, when the bait clicker started to scream. I pulled it out of the rod holder and set the hook. This fish was moving my boat and I had two anchors out. I was thinking that I finally got my self a big cat, I fought him for about 30 to 35 minutes and finally got him to the boat. He was barley hooked and the hook was not in his mouth it was on the side of his face on the outside. This fish was a huge blue and at least 4 to 5 foot long and fatter than me. I was reakky trying to be easy due the hook placement, so I tried to keep his head down while I reached to get my net. ( it is not a good idea to fish for big fish by yourself.) As I tried to net him he got his second wind and went straight down, I was fishing in about 30 to 35 feet of water when all of the sudden I almost fell out of the boat. The damn hook came out and the only thing I caught was a sliver of his skin. I was so mad and stomping my feet and pumping my fist in the air. I know now why they call it FISHING because SOB was already in use! Well maybe next time.
