    A hooker on a scooter. I was catching bait with a cast net while waiting on a buddy to take his boat out and catch sone flat heads on the big o down near louisville. This lady rode up looking for some quick cash. Took a minute to get her to leave me alone and did not appreciate my disinterest.

    Someone elses baitcaster.
    I did find someones wallet from the 70's (early 2000s when i found it) in the water below a small dam, credit cards and all in it, but never could track the owner down. Maybe deceased by then.

    I caught my wife fishing ( Seriously) She lived next to a river . We talked at school and I said lets go fishing down on the river . She said yes .
    We went out fishing and I said who ever catches the first fish , the other has to kiss the one who catches the first fish. I baited our hooks and I threw her line out and then my line . It was not a full minute that she reeled in a small bluegill. Well I kept my end of that bargain and now almost 38 years later I haven't thrown her back.

    Remember how old beverage 6 pack of cans came with the plastic rings? Caught a Rainbow Trout once that had one of those rings around it. Just one ring. Cut the plastic ring off and turned it loose.

    Caught a snake, that had a turtle, that had about 3/4 of him eaten craziest thing i ever seen was hooked in the mouth wit a bass plug and treble hook on it. I dont know if it snagged him or what or if he struck it, thinking it had to do with hurting him. I could pull the snakes head up out of the water, but couldnt see the turtle, had no idea, what was going on , when i got it close enough to see the turtle, and what was going on i cut the line and let the whole mess go

    Caught a snake on a top water frog. Reeled it in and noticed a big bulge in its stomach. Being curious as to what it ate, I cut it open. A big bull frog jumped out and jumped right back into the water and swam away.

    Caught a 15 pound channel cat on a Zebco 33 when I was about 10 years old. This was at a popular pay lake. Had the whole lake laughing at me as I was trying to reel it in while the drag was whining like crazy! No body was laughing when they found out a 10 year old had won the big fish pot for the day. Lots of pissed off drunks after that.

    While casting off a pier in Florida, perfect timing caught a pelican as it flew by. Really interesting fight until I could get the line cut.

    Have caught blue herons down at Barkley and KY dams. Dam things used to grab your skipjacks before you could

    If you ever catch a gulf fish and he is wearing a UK hat and a pair of Oakley sunglasses, they are mine. Lost them about 4 years ago.

    Dad had a heron grab his bangolure one morning. That was a fight. Netted it and got the hook out
