Have you ever caught a WTF??!

It's a perfect day, you on the water in your secret location...You've got that specail lure tied on because you know that big one lurks in this area.  You've seen it chase your lure several times, but you couldn't seal the deal.

But today is the day.  You cast out...no action you see some shadows in the water.  You know it's going to happen any sec.. The line goes tight it's the fight of your-life you've finally got em!  You know it in your heart you've got em!

You reel it in and it's a WTF??!

When I was a kid my dad took me and my cousin fishing, Lakeview Lake, while out on the John Boat a game warden came by checking license and told my father to be careful, because we where fishing in the very area where a man had jumped from his boat and drowned two days prior.

After 30 min. or so my cousin hooked something big bending his cane pole. He pulled it up it was a six pack of Budweiser.

My dad remarked now we know why he drowned....WTF?!

I've told a few of my wtf or omg stories but here's one some others can (and have) related to...

Fishing a kickboat event at the delta quite a number of years ago. Get to my area in Disco bay and start throwing the crank. Coming up to an area that produced well during my prefish and I just KNOW it's about to happen. Weight bends my rod down, a giant head shake...oh yeah! Play the fish for a while when the wtf lightbulb goes off...10+ lb white catfish that managed to get 5 out of 6 hook points in it. Grrr. Total prime time wasted playing and getting the hook out...15 minutes.

I had a big wtf at the Delta some years ago. In my kickboat throwing a frog in Disappointment slough. Worked the frog to the edge of the mat, and sat it a while and nothing happened. I started burning it in to make another cast, and right at my feet BOOM!!!

Once I got my head together, and got my heart back in my chest, I realized that something was pulling really hard on my line. After being pulled round and round a few times, I finally got a glipmse of a big striper. When he finally tired out and let me get my hands on him, I figured him to be about 25 pounds. Total wtf.

Deacon got a crazy wtf throwing a swimbait in my boat a couple years ago, but I'll let him tell that one.

Similar thing happen to me at Frasier. Got one on a dropshot. Got wrapped up in the line and not hooked tho. Was able to get slack on the knot after a while and set him free. Also have caught a few turtles and frogs before.
