"Get Hooked on New York"

The one that got away Details
Name:The one that got away
Created By:kjud29
Details:My friend and I caught a few shiners and headed out to the local golf course pond. We did not have much luck with shiners so we were forced to keep one over 8 inches. The pond we fished was pretty small and I didn't think any fish would eat it. i threw the shiner out there with my bait caster and waited patiently. No longer than 5 minutes later my bobber was popping at the top of the water. A few seconds later the bobber went straight under. I picked up my pole and gave whatever was at the end of my line some extra line to run with so it could swallow the massive shiner. I decided it was time to set the hook so i reeled up the slack and proceeded to set the hook. As i set the hook my rod snapped in half!!! I couldn't believe it...ive never seen anything like that before. I looked at my friend in dis belief. I called that the one that got away.

Hey kjud29, keep the posts coming. Does a fishing rod count as one of the 14 clubs in your bag? There are some huge lunkers lurking in golf ponds! The other year at the TPC River Highlands I was spending more time watching the fish breaking the surface on 17 than the players on the course.

I'd have to agree with nwdarkcloud. Sounds like a snapper.

angryjohn: i feel like the fish was larger because after only a few seconds, the bobber dove straight under. I've never seen a fish that could inhale a bait that big like it did
