    I gotta say snag, as I have had this senerio happen to me almost identicle, not to say I could not have been a huge fish, butif your drifting good chance you gotta rock or log. Just my two sense and they aint worth much:roll_eyes:

    I am up in the air on that one also. I know there are fish that is big enough to make you think you are snagged.

    Heck, I want to believe a big fish, but at this point I'd have to rule in favor of a snag also.

    I will admit this, at first Mike and I considered the events VERY Suspicious! Oh well, another day, right! Dagnamit@ :confused2:

    I still think it was a very good chance it was a fish. After catching a 47# fish on the day we were have I think is with in reason. :big_smile:

    We've had the old "fish around a snag" trip us a time or two. Pearl fought one for 45 minutes one night until he figured out he was stuck. There was a fish, it just wasn't 150lbs as we believed.

    Very well possible if you were near a ledge.

    I'm thinking this would be a great time for pooper to share with Dennis the story of his nephew's mighty fight with the "anchor fish"

    Where exactly were you guys fishing? This would help determine the outcome of what might have happened.
