    Caught a camo jacket one spring with a jerkbait in Little Bear creek. Unfortunately that was when the 3 young duck hunters died that winter before. I couldn't get it off fast enough. It was really surreal!!!

    Man this is a good one. Fishing the Detroit river in spring caught a condom floating by! Southern Utah caught a 20 inch rainbow with two hooks imbeded and grown into its cheek and the line coming out its ass, Cumberland River caught a line with a trout on one end and spinning rig on the other.

    I caught a buzzard, was flying down the lake low , was at a paylake in Louisville , i made a long cast and he flew into the Line, i guess it wrapped around him , he bout pulled the pole out of my hand, anyway if you ever wondered if a buzzard can float, and swim they can, he hit the water and i cut the line, last time i seen him he was walking off

    Growing up during the straight pipe days, I used to wade fish a nearby creek for spotted bass and an occasional smallmouth. Caught one of those condom's once along with a kotex on another trip. A white Rooster Tail will catch anything that

    Caught a pair of women's underwear in a farm pond years ago. We laughed a long time about that one.

    Caught a St Croix spinning rod with a pfleuger reel on it out of the elkhorn creek. My hook was through one of the eyes of the St Croix when I reeled it up. It had been there a while. Cleaned it up and still using the rod to this day. Reel was trashed.

    Caught several bullfrogs over the years on pop r 's and spooks. Those things can get mean when they are hungry.

    Didn't really catch this one per say but was trying to catch bait for striper fishing back a couple months ago and got the net tangled in a piece of rope. Started pulling rope, then got to chain link, then kept following to a real nice rubber coated houseboat anchor. Got it at the house if anyone is interested in it lol

    I shared this once I think back in the day when we had the Strangest Thing You’ve Found in the Woods thread and somehow we started talking fishing too but anyway I hadn’t been driving long, I was 16 and my 13 year old cousin was with me. We used to love to wade creeks, just cut off jeans and old shoes. There was an old iron bridge that crossed part of the one creek we waded often and just below it I hung into something big. I thought it would break my little lightweight spinner combo. As it got closer I noticed it was a black garbage bag. All sorts of thoughts entered our mind. Dead animals? Chopped up person? My cuz was convinced it was money or something valuable that was stolen and tossed to be picked up later and it just happened to be tied up tight. We took it over to the bank and opened it, slowly as we were scared to death. Good news! A bag full of porno mags! All dry too. We caught a few fish that day but mostly wasted away a nice summer afternoon with some quality “reading” material.

    Caught a big leech flipping rocks on a fishing trip in Canada and used it as bait. Almost immediately got a "bite" and had my rod bent all the way over. Leech had stuck the non-hooked end of itself to a rock about the size of a loaf of bread. 10 year old me was dumbfounded
