    I remember it well, it was just a couple years ago...Ole Mellon caught his first snapper, and he was quite proud of himself! So proud he wanted to weigh the stupid thing...I was speechless as I watched him get in his tackle bag and pull out his digital scales, I really could not belive what I was watching!:crazy: You see I guess Mellon did not know how snappers got there name, and I was not going to tell him! He actually reached down to the turtle with the hook on his scales and was gonna hook it in the jaw like you would a catfish???????..Ah he never made it to the turtle!!! The thing struck out fast and furious just like a snapper would do and knocked the scales out of Bryans hand!!! My boy jumped back like a girl screamed and started running!! meanwhile I was doubled over with laughter, and still could not believe what I saw!..I still laugh about it today, and now I will wait for Bryan to valadate this story!

    I told Mellon about this post, but I see he is to embarrased to try and defend himself, which he cant!

    YES! It's True....stretched, but true!

    No... it was several years ago. It was my 1st year of catfishing. :cool2:

    Ture, True, True.... All True. Dude this thing struck so hard that my scales still have the jaw grip marks on it! It was prob 15-20#...... and pizzed off! :embarassed::eek:oooh:


    Again, true, true, true! :big_smile::smile2:

    LIAR! :roll_eyes:


    This is the same night as the famous: "Crappie In A Tree" situation.

    *Everyone should know that this is an attempt by Flathunter for Rep Points!*

    (PS-I think I should get some just for admitting to this story!)

    No alchol was consummed, no illegal drugs were taken, just plain old rookie stupidity!
