    I was catfishing one night and I was reeling one in that felt like a whopper, when I got it in it was a small cat wrapped around an old bucket.
     
  5. LMAO!! Funny stuff guys!:big_smile:

    I caught an old beer can, and somebody's anchor line with anchor still attached.:eek:oooh:

    And, I am very proud to say my daughters never caught a used rubber on a fishing trip and used it as bait.:cool2:

    Been a thread on the same subject but I'll post again.:wink:

    Once I caught my glasses while fishing with a treble hook. About 2 weeks before they had fallen out of my pocket in 11 ft of water at my dock. They were still good as new.

    In 1977 at a lake west of Marissa Illinois my father and his buddy was out getting frogs . They came upon a hand that had been smooth cut off some sorry s.o.b. They called the police and the police later found the body of a black man from Sparta Illinois near by in the feeder creek , he was missing both hands .

    The story on it and I wont mention any names , was that the guy tried to rape a woman that was from Marissa Illinois and her brothers and a few others caught the guy . They cut his hands off and then shot him . One of the brothers later ran for mayor of Marissa...lol

    The papers read that the man was fishing and died of a heart attack and after laying in the woods for 3 days the coyotes ate off his hands...lol
    The left hand was never found , guess it was fish bait or the turtles ate it .

    Trust me , what the papers wrote was b.s.
    I grew up around these men and they was good friends of my fathers .:wink:

    Wierd or stupid things I'VE DONE while fishing.

    Caught a duck on an ultra-light with a beetle. Lost the beetle and line.

    Casted AT a cow while floating the river. Got it in the rear end. Lost my plug and lots of line. The cow didn't think it was as funny as my buddy and I did.

    I purposely whacked a hornet's nest hanging over the water with a paddle while floating the river with my uncle. They ate both of us up. My uncle wanted to kill what was left of me.

    Caught myself in the back of my head.

    Caught several snakes. Really neat till it's time to get them in the boat.

    A lot more stuff like this.

    I caught a stringer full of gills a couple of times. They were mine and they got away so I snagged the stringer and reeled them up. I caught an old fishing pole too.
