Well this was a new one for me. After half a century of fishing, I finally caught a fish with a bare line. roflmao No it wasn’t on purpose. I hung up on the bottom and broke the line. I started to reel in, but stopped to take care of a backlash. The line then started pulling, so I started fighting the fish. If you look closely at the picture there is nothing on the line. The line wrapped around the dorsal fin and I was able to land the fish. I am always trying to improve my fishing skills, but now that I am catching fish without a hook I am not sure where I go from here. roflmao

Thanks. I have caught gar with a noose and a noose on a fishing rod is a great way to catch lizards and turtles. I am not sure if I will ever catch a fish with no knots and no hook again. scared But I may have to try.

Bare line and range cubes, I can only imagine what you come up with next.
Amazing skill or luck, you definitely got it. Can't catch fish sitting at a desk, that's my luck.
Thanks for sharing.

I caught a gar on my bare line once. Don't have any idea how it happened, but he had the line in his mouth, about 4-5' up from the lure...

Never seen one "roped" before though, especially on the dorsal.

It would fall in the pole and line category, but wasn’t big enough for a record. roflmao
