    TRUE STORY
    one night last week i had been out fishing about 8 hours with no sucess.
    i came in ,cleaned up and went to bed,was kind of restless,finally went to
    sleep and was haveing strange dreams,you know how you can get sometimes.
    well i must have been fishing in my sleep and must have hooked something
    really big.i am over 6 ft tall,the next thing i knew i was on the floor wedged
    in about a 5 ft opening between the dresser and the night stand,had a charlie
    horse and could not get up,by that time the wife started laughing and asked
    what are you doing on the floor,she quit laughing when she came around and
    saw the blood.she helped me get up and set on the bed,went and got the
    first aid kit,cleaned and bandaged my wounds.i really wish this was not a
    TRUE STORY,damage report,torn rotater cup in left shoulder,eye tooth thru
    lip,broken jaw tooth,and some minor scratches.after it was over she had to
    laugh and asked me if i needed side rails on the bed?i replied no but a seat
    belt might be a good idea.i can look back now that i am healing up,and think
    it was kind of funny.the only thing i can add to this is,FISHING IN BED CAN BE
    HAZARODUS TO YOUR HEALTH. ;)

    Lol, man, sounds like you came out on the losing end on that one! I bet your wife was happy you didn't try to put her on the stringer, lol. You need to get out and catch some fish before you end up killing yourself! I know how that goes, when you have fishing on your mind 24 hours a day, you start dreaming about em too. I just ain't never had one put up that big of a fight in my sleep!

    MAN,I would've never thought sleeping could be so dangerous.I dreamed there was a 2 foot tall rat standing on the nightstand ,swung at it and knocked a 12' rotating fan 10 feet down the hall. Years ago man,years ago.It happens to us all.I escaped w/o injuries though :D

    I am sorry that that one got away, Did he spool you or what???
    I think you have some serious issues about not catching fish,LMAO!!! You need to come to grips with the fact that fish don't always cooperate with us, and we as fisherman tend to need to feel that tug on our lines from time to time to keep us from going crazy,LMAO!!! I hope you catch one soon before you break your neck, :D :D :D

    i dont know how big it was,im 6ft 4 and weigh 230 lb must have been a monster to drag me out of bed.i will start taking a chill pill at night.i have
    probably been to wired up getting ready to take a 2 week vacation.leaving
    saturday for indiana for a short visit,then headed to barkley lake for at least
    a week.as far as her laughing there will probably be a pay back sometime.
    i just hope it does not involve blood and teeth.as i look back on it i have
    to laugh,except for the dentist bill.i guess i will remember that old saying,
    NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF YOUR OPPONENT. :D

    Captain Kink, I didn't know there were catfish in Indiana, I thought it was a cornfield. Must be where the in-laws live. I've been to Barkley, it's a big lake, try not to get dragged off in it, like you did in your dream. Watch out for Kentucky lake, it's like right next to it. If you get lost and end up in Texas, come on by, I'll throw a mangy coyote on the barby. Enjoy your vacation and have a good trip, even if you do have to go to Indiana.

    Thats a new one!
    About a month ago I was sleeping soundly and heard a yell from my girlfriend. I woke up and she had a bloody nose. I guess I was sleep talking, and she said I sounded upset. The next thing she new, I rolled over and popped her in the nose. I didn't wake up until I heard her yell. It took quite a bit of apolgizing before she got over it. Needless to say I slept on the futon that night :eek:
