I couldn't believe it, he never flinched, never said a thing just sat there while I rowed to shore, and re-rigged his buddy. We finally got it out. I pinched the barbs from that moment on! LOL
Sounds like Johnny Walker may have been along for the ride also... lol

I lost a rod out of a rod holder when a trout hit it at T-dad while fishing a CWA tourney. at the dinner that night a fellow angler returned it to me, he hooked it and it still had the fish on. setthehook identified that it was mine because my partner and use a unique weight that I make.

I also lost a rod and reel overboard one night at pueblo as we were trolling, about 15 minutes my boat mate that night reeled his line in and my rod came up with his hook in the first guide of my rod

my son wasn't as lucky at p-lo he lost a $250 rig overboard in 11 feet of water. it had a topwater lure on about 2 feet from the tip, there was a small stick about 10 feet away so the location was well marked. all 3 of us tied on snagging hooks and casted for 2 hours and couldn't catch it, that was when lots of big wipers were around so we thought a big fish hit that topwater lure and moved it somewhere

as you can see I do a lot of lindy rigging and slabbing at p-lo
I lost dipsey dive at 11 mile an orange one. Down near the north side hump on the way to dam. Something took it, then broke the line. Never saw what it was.
Hope that big boy tasted good

We had 3 wiper and 2 keeper eyes on a chain stringer. When I went to load another eye on the stringer I noticed that only the clip was left on the boat cleat, no fish. The chain stringer had broken and the fish were all sinking to their demise.

We stayed on the same anchor while we all tried to snag the stringer, blind, cause we never saw it break. After an hour we had given up hope. I put my rod in a rod holder, and shortly after my rod just started to slowly load up. I went and grabbed it and lifted, to what felt like a snag. As I grabbed the spool to try and bend my jig hook with 10# braid, it lifted off the bottom. At that point I thought i surely had the stringer and as i lifted it further off the bottom it really started to feel like headshakes on the snag. I was pulling it form 28' and i had to be careful pulling it up because it was HEAVY like 8lbs. So i would pull up a foot and it would go back down 6". We were all waiting around to see if I had the stringer. After 20 minutes of cranking we saw that I had snagged some water logged brush. smh

Lesson of the trip, dont use chain stringers. Wish someone else would have snagged the stringer and the fish didnt go to waste, but I doubt it.

Fish killer.

Tell them about your biggest catch (snag).....dicksimp

I was fishing for suckers with two rods and was pulling them in fast and furious when it occurred to me I should by a wire rod holder for my second rod. about a minute later I snagged one up through the hole, price tag still on it. And I snagged a beaver who was swimming under water at Quincy reservoir.
