OUTSTANDING! I can't believe you were able to get the line unwrapped and the fish was still there! That is dedication lol

only way this could be better, is if you fell in, got it, and landed fish floating on your back...

good job

That was awesome! I'd hardly describe that as a fail...great recovery.

Funny video. This happened to me about a week ago down in Port A when I set the hook on a gator trout. I'm now I'm the market for a new squarebill setup

Great recovery and great fish. That was a nano second from being gone. Awesome video.

Thanks guys, the only reason I moved so fast is it is my new favorite combo, my old favorite combo is at the bottom of a river because I dropped that one when I tripped on the back of my buddy's boat. I wasn't gonna come home and tell the wife I need another new fishing rod....lol. About 8 years ago I had a smallie do the same exact thing only it was on a buzzbait, got that one back and landed the fish as well.

On a side note a 5lber in MN is a pretty big fish, obviously there is bigger but our state record is only 8lb 15 oz

Same thing has happened to me and amazingly like you, I was able to grab the rod before it sunk and land fish fish. Good video!
