Let's call it your best surprise fish.
Over to you
You immediately went to Las Vegas, obviously.Lake Piru fishing for bass from the beach. I was throwing a blade and got bit. fish splashes a few feet behind my blade and something feels funny
I somehow hooked the eye of a barrel swivel that had a 3 foot leader with a rainbow trout attached to the hook on the other end...
best part was I had 2 witnesses! the eye of the swivel was so small it barely fit over the barb of the hook.
I am sorry for your loss.I use to go down to cabo with my father and high rolling business boss( all free for me) They were big time bill fishermen(just not good fishermen) all I wanted to fish was tuna all they wanted was marlin.IN 1997 while fishing for marlin one day I spotted a big school of yellowfin, we slid in so I could catch dinner. As soon as I hooked up I said this is no tuna who wants it but none of them believed me. If you could see there faces when a 273# blue marlin went tail dancing on the surface. My father nor his fishing buddys are around anymore but they never did come close to betting that fish and for some reason they never would take me back down there with them. HAHAHAHA
