    He kept wrapping his tail around anything and everything to keep me from pulling him out of the water. I had to reach down and untangle him multiple times with one hand while keeping the line tight with the other!

    I caught a frog once on a tiny fly I didn’t see it grab my lure and didn’t have a clue what I had till I got it reeled in.

    Wow that is NOT what I’d expect to come out of the water when I was reeling haha

    I’ve caught a catfish and when I reeled it up it was COMPLETELY torn to shreds like in some spots you could see all the way through the fish

    @M Conroy what did she think?

  • Colby's avatar

    @M Conroy yeah in nature anything can happen

  • Coyote's avatar

    @M Conroy if you have rattlesnakes in your area night is when they come out to ambush prey.

  • Coyote's avatar

    @M Conroy I’ve got a baby rattlesnake in October. Babies don’t quite know how to control their venom glands so when they bite they are definitely giving a full dose of venom.

  • Coyote's avatar

    Yes, venom is intended to get food. Once they learn to control their venom glands they can bite in defense but not inject any venom, it’s called a dry bite.

    Wow! I caught a black vulture on a fake frog popping it across the pond. He flew down gulped it down then the fight was on!
