Lost a fish in my hands up against the side of the boat earlier this year that was larger than my 12.76.

1oz spinnerbait pop'd right out of the mouth when trying to lip her.

It's a disgusting / disturbing constant feeling that will haunt you until you catch a fish of equal or larger size.

I'd rather never see it. Then I can just try to convince myself it was a carp or catfish and move on.

What rod are you using? It looks fairly stiff. Maybe it wasn't helping you very much and was easy for the fish to get some slack and shake the bait. Keeping that deep bow in the rod helps them stay buttoned up.

Yup it is. I have a few cranking rods with the bow in them but hate using them when bumping bottom.

The biggest fish I ever had on was @ Fork and was more than likely DD........ I did get a real good look at it before it broke me off in a deep tree @ Burch.......I think seeing it made it a whole lot worse.........

Crank, hahaha that reaction. Priceless. I've never latched onto a DD that I know of but I will take a moment of silence for you.

Its way worse when its feet from the boat and both you and your partner see it come halfway out of the water and throw your spinner-bait. It was my partners first 10 minutes ever on Falcon, "dam that was a big fish" he said. My thoughts were, yea you wont see another one that big this trip I promise!

I've caught well over 10 fish in the 10 to 11 lb range, my estimate of the fish was 15 lbs with my own eyes!

you know that fish was a once in a lifetime! That would have been close to Tommy's record!
