Solid 5 pounder owned the fight for the first 20 seconds, in my defense I have really bad carpal tunnel in the hand I hold onto the rod, but I don't know how much that effected this, that fish was strong!

There have probably been many mean five pounders that have gotten the best of all of us. Wonder how many of those lost freight trains I never got to see that were really just a 5 with a bad attitude.

Man nice grab tho. And good thing you stuck him well, that fish had plenty of time to get off and stayed pinned.

I was cranking the dam on Lewisville 2 summers ago, kinda bored and not paying attention, something hit my DD22 and my rod shot out of my hands like it was connected to a submarine. It hit the water like a javelin and I never saw it again. I dunno what hit it but it wasn't a bass. My guess is a big yellow cat just because of the ferocity of the strike, and the weight. It was a REALLY heavy fish, or it felt like it was for the half a second I felt it. I was pissed at first but the more I thought about it the more impressed I was. Fish 1 me 0.

Now I know what it means when someone says "it nearly pulled the rod out of my hands"

I prefer that to the fish spitting the hook out right in front of me

I've wondered this for years. My PB is 11.25 and it felt like I snagged a towel. Next cast I thought I was going to break the world record with how hard it was pulling. Not even 5 lbs lol
