    I don't think I would go in after it, but I am impressed with this guys verbal restraint. I think my reaction would have been a lot more colorful.

    first I would get real mad, then take the same bait and fish like mad in the same spot, hoping for another one to take the bait.

    Believe it or not that happened to me but not on purpose accidently. Leaning over to land a fish that was lower than the bank because of low water levels, and in the river I went alond with a nonlanded fish. Ruined a cell phone, canon digital camera. Bad night but we did catch fish. Was a little chilly for the rest of the night but I toughed it out.

    I'd have to really believe it was one that big and I had a chance for it. Then, I'd call it a night and go home. Lavon looks about 6 feet low or more.

    Gadz: It's raining now, but the last time I checked the corps website was about a week or so ago, it had come up a foot or so over the past couple weeks ... down 15.5 feet below normal pool.
    The lake has dropped to a level lower than the old bank before they raised the lake level back in the early 70's. That's why from the clip it only looks like it is a few feet low. It is maybe 5 feet low ... from normal pool in the early 70's. I think the lowest it reached was about a month or so ago, right around 18 feet. There are places in the north end of the lake that had 4 foot of water maybe two years ago, the brush, grass there now is close to head high.

    Looks like the guy earned that fish since he was out in some rough conditions. I can understand going in after it since I've done that myself. Too bad it got away. CPR without the photo!

    KEEP FISHIN'
    Last fall, a couple of us were on the Knightsbridge dam on Great Miami River. The guy next to me baited up a live shad and tossed it out about 50 yards. A bit later, big run and fought a nice flathead to the wall, whereupon he suffered a similar premature release, as the leader cut on a rock. Twenty minutes later, guy next to him gets a run and lands a 30-lb flat, with the circle hook and matching leader from the first guy.

    Last March I was fishing at a friends pond when I had my line break. It broke at my rod tip I assume because of a nick in the eyelet. Well every so often my bobber would re-surface. Guess what. I swam and and caught it. It was only a little three pound channel and a short run back to the house to get warmed up.

    Screw all that! If a fish breaks my line, it desrves to get away and live. Plus, I already know the fish can out swim me, that's just common sense.
