Took the boat out today to Cherry Creek. Trolled and mapped out the shallows. No bites but........trolling from south to north to the cement part of the dam....me and MacRick got lots of big fish signs on our fish ID so we decided to still fish. I was using a worm harness in orange/green spinner and a little dobber of striped power bait on the hooks. I was using my cheap Zebco 88 and my 5'6" one piece boat pole. What a mistake! The fish that took my bait completely bent my pole in half. I thought it would break and quick quick, I gave it some line but I could not get him reeled in. I do not know what kind of fish he was but he was pulling so hard that I could not get him reeled in. I think he was about 15' down and he pulled one last time and he was gone. I still had my hooks but they were wiped clean of all my bait. Must have hooked him in a place where he could get away. What kind of fish can do that kind of pulling? Must go back with better pole and reel!
