Ok so i figured i would take the wife and go out a families member private pond to do a little bass fishing. It was a great day for it, 72 deg. and 15 mph winds. The water temp was at 43 deg. down 6 feet and clear up to ten feet. We were having a good time and see was having fun using her new cat pole to throw a little Zoom fulke.:confused2it's what see wanted) We had a couple of hits but no fish. I did how ever leave with a new battle wound. I put a 1/2 oz. bass sinker so she could get some distance. Well needless to say she was having trouble being the first time using a spinning reel. After a couple off decent casts she hung it up in a little locus tree. I went over and tried pulling it free to no avail. I knew it was going fun to break the line as i have 30# big game on here reel. I breaced my feet and ran a couple loops of line around the reel seat and gave nice quick jerk. WHACK!!!! I felt the sinker hit me dead center of the calf. A 1/2 oz. bass sinker at about 50mph does not feel the greatest. This was the day we had on the lake, and even through i left with a limp it was a great day all the least.
