While trolling for northerns last weekend on Mitchell Lake, I thought I had hooked some weeds. I reeled in the crank bait to find a bobber and some fishing line. After pulling in about 30 feet of line I came to the jiggle stick it was still attached to. It's still in the boat if anyone wants it and can describe it to me.

p.s. The jiggle stick was the longest thing caught all morning. frown.gif

A cow... Actually the guy I was with did. Was fishing in a small bay of the main lake that just stunk bad. The guy I was with was tossing a spoon when he set it on something and after some tugging and pulling a decaying cow popped to the surface. We cut the line and did a long distance release.

My 7 YO brother let out all the line in his pole while trolling and the line thatcame with wasnt tied on. I was mad at him and beacuse it was nicer line too.

We go out sunny fishing 4 hours later and my granpa gets all mad cuz we were vertical fishing and he caught one of of lines. He start pulling and pulling it up expecting to see our rods bend. He keeps going andgoing until the same exact lure hewas trolling with pops up into our boat. What are the chances of that?

While fly-fishing in Mexico, I was just learing how to double haul and on one of my false casts, my line went tight in my hand and I heard a muffled "YOW!". I turned around to see my fly in my guides leg......needless to say I didn't live that one down for the rest of the trip.

I caught a bat throwing a tiny toredo in the river. Not sure if he thought it was something he could eat and hit it during cast or if I just smacked him midair. Since it was getting dark I wasn't sure why the lure was reeling in funny. Sure was suprised to see the bat hooked. I have a pic but it's not digital and no scanner.

My brother set the hook on what he thought was a huge fish that took him about 10 minutes to land.....turned out to be a drift sock.

Weirdest Catch or Funniest laugh of a catch!!

yeap, I did catch a bat

Seen a guy catch a flycatcher bird

My buddy caught what he thought was big catfish, but I saw it all - a pelican.

My uncle caught a duck

My nephew caught a loon

My brother in law tried catching wild turkey with a tandem spinner bait???? - yeah right, I got angry at him for purposely trying to snag the bird. Except for this one, all of the other ones are just way too funny.

I hooked a guy's face one time. I was in my boat casting and a boat full of other guys had come withing about 30 feet of me on a lake that was otherwise practically empty of people. I think they saw me catching fish and came over quietly with a trolling motor.

I muffed a back cast with my plug and it hit the guy in the face.

My older brother caught me. I put up one heckuva fight. One hospital trip and a bunch of stitches later, I beat him up.

Casting near rock dock on Lake Waconia... caught myself a Gull. Wrapped worm,weight, and line around a leg. Didn't really notice at first as I was talking to buddy in back of boat & all the sudden I feel my line moving up and away to my right... Strangest thing to look up and see a bird flying away with your line. I slowly realed her in and (not without a fuss and some feathers lost) untangled the line and set her free... Crazy time in a small boat. Also, about a 30 plus pound snapping turtle on a texas rigged lizard on Waverly... I thought I had the state record bass for a second: (I cut the line). Another one... Not really a catch though... I was casting a frog near some pads (different lake) and just SMOKED a Swallow in flight... I think I either knocked it out cold and it drowned or I just killed it with the impact. THAT was weird as the impact was probably lest than 5 yards from the boat and obviously completely unexpected... You just can't make this kind of stuff up.............. grin.gif

Trolling mille lacs early this summer and my deep taildancer wasn't quite thumping right so I reeled it in. Low and behold I had caught a used condom on the back treble. Talk about sick!

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
