went out yesterday to check my boat out. make sure it was runnin good. decided to fish for a couple hrs. pulled up to a spot here in owensboro. decided to try it. couldnt find much bait but i had a few small shad. dropped 2 lines off the back and was baiting the 3rd. i use cabela plastic quick draw holders. well i noticed i got a small bump on my pole so i layed the one i was baiting down. i was at the front of the boat and of course my lines was at the back. so i was making my way to the back when SLAMMMMMM POP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pole holder snapped and i watched my rod and reel shoot like a rocket to the bottom of the 35 feet i was fishing. learned my lesson on that. so i loosend all the drags a bit and fished another 30 to 45 minutes. no more bites. no more bait. man what a bad day. lol but it was my fault. i just hope the fish works his way loose so i get a chance to catch him this weekend plus i dont want to harm him in any way.
