    well' i'm about to cry, i lost a huge channel right at the bank today. i was fishing one of the smaller side creeks, that flow from the killbuck creek, when i hooked a big one. i estimate that it weighed about 15-20 lbs. i've caught plenty of 10lb'ers, but this one made two of them. the worst part is that, i had heavy enough line to hold it, i just plain screwed up. i tried to adjust my drag while fighting it, and when i did, he broke the leader. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

    Awwwww hun, hate to see that one get away! happened to me one time. Got it all the way to the bank and lost it, I was cool as a cucumber...Though my husband was freaking out. When I lost him he was up to his knees in the water and saying things a man oughta repent over. I laughed soo hard. It was down right funny. I couldnt help it. My laughing didnt make it any better I know. But it was either laugh or cry and laughing was a lot more amusing. Puts a whole new meaning to win some and LOOSE some. I got faith you'll 'em next time. :wink:

    yeah, win some, lose some i guess. it just sucks because channels over 10lbs are rare in that peticular stretch of water.
