The most difficult "critter" I have ever seen boated...

On a coastal trip fishing with friends my one pal "hooked into" what he insisted was a "big one" we all watched with great anticipation as he "played" his quarry, rod tip bending deeply... untill he finally boated an oyster in the shell. Now that is a hard one to hook...

On a specially constructed "practice plug" we use to yard fish for our Dachshund all the time.

Wonder if there's a web site for poets and if they're talking about reels ?

Couple of problems, though. I think rabbit-fishing season ended in Idaho in mid-June, so it's a good thing that one got away.
Remember Jimmy Carter whacking the attacking rabbit with a canoe paddle? Between you and Jimmah, I can think up one heck of an Ironman competition.
And one bit of advice. Stay away from the lettuce for a few days, eh?

A site for poets-'twould be nice!
One about reels nice twice!
But we do what we must
To prevent angler brain rust
So drivel at times must suffice!

Well, we've been hearing a lot of stories about the critters everyone has caught, but who's going to believe them? Here's some proof of one catch--our younger son flexing the mussel he caught in Dead Creek, Vt., 1977.

Does a tire hauled out of Monterey Bay count as a critter? I was using blood worms.

When casting for four legged foe
Beware of the line test you throw
If you hook on a beast
Practice Catch and release
Jackalope are already scarce don't you know


   

OK

The oyster that el saw netted
As she just gastronomically vetted
The question, I guess
At the risk of redress:
Was her appetite wet or just whetted?

Without the proper gulf coast oyster harvest permits we had to practice catch and release on that one...

We indulged in a few of the liberated oysters kin later that evening on the half shell having been whetted. :lol:

When fishing for beasts spined or finny
It helps to have hooks sharp and plenty
If the fish wears a shell
Then hookin' it is hell
And your catch will leave you quite skinny


:roll:

Here is proof of an odd catch.

Image

This prize was taken in Whitewater bay in Everglades Naitonal Park. It was 26" in length and had a weight of 2 1/4 OZ. It was identified by it's common name as a "Three Eyed Bottom Dwelling Tippit Fish". (brokendeye~polesnapacuss) It was mounted and is now hanging above a fire place somewhere!

Caught on a macadamia nut, Harv?

We hope, Geezer, you don't feel hurt
That our postings till now ignored Bert.
But it hardly seems fair,
When you're fishing for hare,
To use doggies as gillies, Old Furt!

The Rest of the Story

The practice plug has been found. I have been cleaning out my old two car garage/shed so that I could park both my boats under shelter when not in use, and yesterday I moved a stack of firewood from the back of the garage into my woodshed. As I was loading the final wheelbarrow full of wood, there was the practice plug. I don't know if it sailed into the shed and behind the wood pile when the line broke, or if the rabbit ran behind the wood to escape the speedy Bert the Boykin and shed himself of the rubber plug back there. Regardless, the plug has been found and is now waiting for another furry target.

The truth has come to us late
That the bunny is free of that weight!
We were worried for days,
So no further delays-
Send more news that is sure to elate! Bad Bob

"Flat Fishing for Pigeons"--Please!
The idea puts me so ill at ease
The problem, I guess,
Putting me under duress:
How do you catch-and-release?

Came across this thread t'other night
And it gave me a chuckle on sight
So many dear friends,
Some gone 'round the bend;
These memories are a delight

-- Dr. Todd
