Just had to this, the wife and I were fishing in the Tn river the other night and we were catching a few fish, having a good time. So she says hey, hey, hey and then screams hey. I look and the rod in the front of the boat is getting jerked hard. It went once then twice then gone. I don't know what it was but it ripped the rod holder off the bolts, these weren't cheap junk either. There was nothing to do it was gone before I could get to it. I have caught many fish over 50's and 60's and never had a problems like this. Just had to share, now I have an excuse to go buy another rod and reel.
