    My bad, memory failed me again. I talked to my brother and he said it was 17.5. I was thinking 22 sounded awful long. I should have asked him 1st especially knowing how bad my memory is at times.

    Fact !!!
    For me, it was a duck or goose (memory fails me). I was fishing and a duck/goose crossed my line and got all tangled up in it's feet/legs. I know it created quite the ruckus and it seemed like forever before it finally broke my line. I could hear folks bad mouthing me across the lake thinking I had done it on purpose.

    Heard a tale about that guy there that he caught one in the same place and it was probably a record and he ate it

    2 springs ago I was fishing a pond near my parents that I grew up fishing. There was a duck with several ducklings swimming down the bank. Saw a bass some up and grab one of the ducklings “Whoa that was cool!” The momma duck and ducklings quickly moved across the lake. Next couple casts I caught a bass and while I’m fighting it, it comes up and jumps and spits out the baby duck! Still alive! It swims over to the bank and gets up in the rocks. After I toss the bass back I grab it, walk around the pond to the other bank and give it back to the mom and it’s siblings where they quickly reunited. I have it all on video too but I’m sure the file size is too big to upload

    Barren lake?! I pulled nice ones out every cast from there one year. Must have been right before you got there.

    I would have given it to the police to discern and call about. Maybe it wasnt one of theirs at all. But if my kid died like that it may mean everything to have the last thing he wore in my closet.

    Fishing behind the house a few years ago near dark and caught a bat. The thing swooped in and took the bait out of the air. Had to reel it in and take the hook out of its mouth and it was not pleased. Caught a nice ocean rig fishing from shore in Florida once.

    I caught a heron once at night. Finally had to cut the line.
    However, the strangest thing I caught was one night on Cherokee. I was hybrid fishing and threw a skitter walk to some busting fish. Thought I hooked a stick but when I reeled it in I had hooked a dead hybrid IN THE MOUTH. It looked to have been dead a while but my back treble was squarely in the lip!

    Seen were someone caught a hellbender. When I was a kid we ran a trotline in Greenriver about half mile below the Rochester dam one summer night. Caught about a dozen orange and black ones. All about a foot long. Those things are mean, my buddy got bit bad enough to draw blood when trying to get the hook out of one before we just cut the line on the rest.
