Sharkinator, CousinIt & I hit the Vine today.
Was kinda slow but we still did ok. Hooked a boater this AM. Hooked em good in the tip of his thumb deep past the barb. He was around 200lbs & pulled hard for a few second then started hollerin & shortly after gave up. He & his buddy showing off his puncture wound. didn't bleed much at all. didn't want to come out though!
he took his cutters & worked/pulled it till it finally popped out. We all had a laugh afterwards. then he smiled & gave the ol thumbs up pose. what a GUY!!! Wish i could have gotten a close up when my lure was still in him.
He sure was great about it. All he asked is what we were catchin em on. Told him shad, then I offered to catch them some & he excepted
. They had been on he water since the night before. Hence the Eskimo apparel.
Then he thanks me & says: "we'll have to hook up again sometime"
Sharkinator's reel blew up right before we called it quits.
here we honor his reel for many years of dependability with a final retirement photo.
another great day on the water.
