    Man I was just talking about this with a buddy the other day. It seem like when or before you can get relaxed you get that MONSTER bite. If you're a few feet away, And you catch it out the corner of you eye, Seems like you go into hyper-speed getting back to your rig. Well with me it always seems like I hear that Orchestra hit that low B note.

    Or you'll see the rod moving a bit and kinda hover over it with your hands, ready to snap back. Instead you take a drink of your beverage and the dang thing hits. You spilled you drink all over yourself !

    Or better yet you have 3 or 4 poles out and you get a hit on one but no fish so you check your bait and right in the middle of putting new bait on the farthest pole from you bends half way over and you get a hook in the thump trying to get to it, while tripping over your tackle box , dip basket and getting tangled in your cast net while kicking your soda bottle into the water.;)

    Eating is when I get mine! If it's a slow day, all I got to do is hold a sandwich in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other and its "fish on!"

    I know of two other things that can get you a nice hit. Start packing to go is one and getting a call on the cell phone is the other! I have just about thrown my cell phone in the water a couple of times!

    Packing up never fails to get a bite. One place I go with friends the parking lot is just about 30 yards away, and it never fails we will be taking stuff to the vehicles when one of the women will start yelling!!!!

    When my Girlfriend want to come with me fishing i do the same thing :)... she hates it too cause we're making out and i always have an eye on my rod and not always paying full attention to her... I stopped bringing her because the 2 loves would off set me and i'd just be getting in trouble.

    I find that if the day is slow on bites,I only have to cast out my conventional reel without thumbing it correctly.While I'm taking out the bird's nest from the spool,the biggest fish of the day will hit and embed the line so deep it disappears,If I'm lucky enough to bring it in,I spend the next 1/2 hour getting the snarl out.:blush-big

    The things like this really make me want to fish more. Just think if we were bass fishers, we could not even get a chane to experience these things.

    Reeling one in and my partner gets a hit and then my other pole starts bending. So He can't help me and I can't help him. I'm sitting there holding two poles high in the air while he's getting his in so he can take one of my poles.

    They definantly watch us even at night. Me and my buddy will sit for hours without a bite and as soon as his girlfriend calls him and he walks a little ways away his pole doubles over. Or as soon as I decide to lite up a smoke and have a drink in one hand I ALWAYS get a bite. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I do these things after I haven't gotten a bite in a while and am bored or maybe it's just a coinsidense.:confused:
