Today was one of the worst days in my life. Yup you guest it I lost one of those big guys at the local watering hole. This is going to be just like the lake Dixon fish but my fish got me all wet and all I was able to do was just scream.
I set in tonight about 6:30 Pm and started to fish. Found one that was willing but just had some bad Eye sight and left a big plash. Then I found a toad that was tailing. You would have thought that she was a bone fish not a bass. She would tail then once I would give her my offering she would disappears. Come back 5 min later but she never took. I let my offering set for all most 10 min and nothing. So after an hour i moved on. Moved around and found a real fishy spot. Tossed in and sure thing I feel some thing and set the hook. Then I had dead weight. As though I had hooked a log or a stick a really big stick. No movement of any kind started getting up set with myself when i see this huge white thing coming at me. I had hooked her in the belly. This is strange for more that one reason. I had a Brushog on. She must have taken a swipe at it with her tail. Well as i was going to lip her the hook comes flying out and then gives me a good does of her tail and I ended up taking a shower.
I have been very lucky I guess in the pass for I can say I have not lost any really really big ones. That is that I know of. So this was a bummer. If
