    Just your average fishing trip slow and bugs are biting and flying in your mouth.Talking to your buddy about 13255426 things that dont even pretain to fishing.When all of the sudden wham Fish on!! You set the hook hes pulling drag, u anticipate how big the cat is going to be and then uh oh your so called Catfish swims toward the bank but doesnt stop in the shallow water he keeps going now he looks like a wide receaver running down the bank lmao,Its a Beaver.A Beaver that doesnt slow down he just pulls all the line out of your reel,now thats Fishing lol.

    This happened to a buddy of mine a couple of years ago on catfish charlie i think the Beaver just swam by and got snagged but it was very exciting!

    Was bass fishing years ago with a buddy of mine. Shad Rap crank baits had just come out and were hard to find and expensive when you found them, he had one tied on and made a long cast. Then he yelled for the net, his pole was bent double and his drag was screaming. He finally got it turned and almost back to the boat when the biggest beaver in Arkansas, with a Shad Rap in his butt, came boiling out of the water right beside the boat. He got him up to the boat 2 or 3 times and kept saying, all I want is my bait back, but every time he'd reach for the bait that beaver would swap ends and lunge at him, he ended up cutting his line and donating the Shad Rap to Mr. Beaver.

    That was the good part, it was my buddy's plug. I might could have helped him get it back, but after we saw it was a beaver and I watched him nearly get eat-up try'n to get that Shad Rap back, I was too busy rolling around in the boat laughing to be much help.
