    i went fishin saturday night with a couple of buddies and we didnt catch anything all night but these other guys were slammin them all night .so the next mornin my buddy gets one on a 21lb shovel head.and my line starts to pull out slow and instead of grabbin it cause i thought it was his fish tangled up in my line cause he was right next to me.come to find out he wasnt and by the time i realized and set my hook it was to late it came loose and he got away i had for a second i would guess 35lbs

    probably should have set the hook sooner no matter what. A tangled up mess with a big fish on the end is a welcomed problem.

    i try to know where my lines are no matter what.. and even if i think its someone and not something i still go ahead and set the hook have lost many fish thinking different.. But im sorry to hear you lost him, but it gives you something to look forward to on the next trip and so on...
