    My son-inlaw and I were out channel cat fishing last night. When I got a strike on my pole set the hook and was reelin her in and all of a sudden my son-inlaws pole starts bouncing he sets the hook and we're battlin it in and when I got it to the boat it was a nice 10 lber. But where is the thing it also had my sonlaws hook in its mouth too.We we both fishing with live blue gill. about 20 feet apart I've never had anything like this happen before has anyone else.:0a23:

    Me neither. That had to be one very stupid fish or very hungery fish.

    this happened to my wife and I last week. I was very strange. We were fishing with Jim from Fishinpals. Here's a link to the thread he started about it including a pic of the fish. We were about 10 feet apart and using Hoss's Hawg dip bait on Looper Rigs.

    I have never experienced or seen that happen before. The man thing is you landed the fish. Nice fish too.

    Yeah, I was going to post saying that it happened to you too, shawn. It really is an odd occurrence but seems like an amazing experience.

    I was there and it was strange. I mean who was going to claim the fish. I think they decided on the fish being an "Ours" fish.

    That fish had to be swimming fast to eat your bluegill and your son-inlaws. And you say that you'll was about 20' apart. Lol. He was hungry!

    Ive seen two men on opposite sides of a trout stream cast to the same fish and it took both baits at the same time. The arguement that followed was hillarious.
