Unusual Catch of the Day
Last year when fishing in our favorite fishing hole my wife accidentally threw one of our fishing poles overboard. We joked about catching it sometime in the future when we were fishing there again. Welcome to the future. Yep, today my wife caught the fishing pole she threw out of the boat last year.
I think the rod is salvageable, not sure about the reel. I will clean it up and see. I caught a 14" bass and she hooked but did not land a very large unidentified fish that had enough teeth to chew through 50 lb test leader. It broke the line just as I was reaching over the side of the boat with the landing net. The part of the fish that broke the surface was somewhere between 20" to 24" long.
On the way back to the boat ramp I was able to snap this pic, but my phone camera really doesn't do it justice:
