Junk that you've snagged
Funny enough all at John Townsend reservoir on FT Carson.

A boot
A pair of boxer shorts
An American flag Tshirt
And two lines that had a fish on the other end

What's some of the stupid shit that you guys have "caught"

I caught a pair of vice grips at creek. Soaked em in transmission fluid for a couple weeks, knocked the rust off and I'm still using them.

To many trees, rocks, and weeds to count, ha
Let's see things I've snagged tons of fishing line, 1-2 I can remember with fish on the end, actually snagged a laker this weekend under the bottom jaw somehow, snagged a crawfish net one time in the middle of a lake 130' deep, a sock, a croc (shoe), a 5 gallon bucket and a car (car was a 70's something, reported it and the patrolman said they knew about it car was dumped back in the 80's by some kids cause they couldn't afford to fix it) I actually dove down in the river there to get my favorite lure unstuck and seen it was hooked on the underside of the car

Most exciting catch that was not a fish
Back when I was a little less conservation minded, we were fishing Pleebs around Memorial Day. The wiper and walleye bite was really good and we were fishing from a 32' yacht. 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.

I always thought catching boots was for cartoons until I caught one.
Caught lines with fish on em
Caught a 30" dead and rotting walleye
Caught 4-6 crawfish at once...they were falling off the line as it came in

Oh yeah and my most proud moment...caught my rod that was leaning on a tree on the windup and hurled it into the pond.....stayed hooked to I reeled it in

How about an almost snag? My wife's family used to elk hunt in the LaSal Mountains on the Colorado/Utah border. While they hunted I usually took my pontoon and fished some of the local lakes. One hunting camp we set up near Hidden Lake on the west side of the LaSals. No one was having much luck so they decided to hunt further east, closer to Redd Ranch (if you know where that is along the Colorado border). I stayed in camp and wandered up to the nearby lake and put my pontoon in. No sooner had I put in and started casting with my fly rod than a cow elk and her calf walked by the lake. They were close enough that I could have hooked the calf with my fly but I thought better of it as I didn't want mama elk coming into the lake after me for bothering her calf. So, does that count?
