Went out to my favorite lake today at around 6:00 am today. I cast out my crawler around 6:30am and had a bite in about 3 minutes. I set the hook and it started runnin! I mustve had a 20+ pound channel on the other end of my line, it pulled me all the way to the other side of the peninsula i was fishing off of (i was bank fishing) and then all of a sudden he stopped running... 5 minutes later i find out from another fisherman that there was a big drop off 5 feet away from shore and that the fish was hiding behind it. So i get into the water and put my rod tip right above the drop off and then i find out that there was a seaweed bush right below the surface of the water where my fish was! The line got tagnled in the weed and i tried to get it out for like an hour cause i really wanted this fish! And then the worst thing that could possibly happen happened! The cat tried one last shot at getting free and then it snapped my line!!!:angry: I stood there for about 30 seconds and then I started to get mad. I rebaited and casted out in the same spot. Didnt get any hits for the rest of the day :0a4: and i couldnt sleep a wink.
