Catch of the Day / Baby boy showed out!

My 19 year old son Ryan has finished welding school and is back to being able to fish some. Dad went to watch my nephew playing baseball in the State Tournament so Ryno fished the Thursday Nighter with me. We've had a lot of rain this week so we started at the bridge knowing there would be some current. After 30 min I knew that wasn't it. I headed down the lake and went to a sand boil, that is way out in the mouth of a big spawning pocket. He got hung up in a brushpile a couple times and I was getting a little flustered. Next thing I know he reels down and nails one! I could see by the look of his TFO 7'MH he was hooked into a good one. I grabbed the net and ran to the back. He got her to the surface and I scooped her pretty much out of the air when she jumped beside the boat. A quick and quiet celebration later she was in the box. Forgot to measure her length, but she tipped the scales at 8.10. I also forgot to measure the 3.3lb one that I caught for IBASS.... ~b~ Good night with 10 boats. Ryno got big bass and we placed third with 2 fish for 11.4, behind 3 fish for15.8 and 3 fish for 13.3. Weighed 13 fish with 5 over 6lbs and only 3 under 4lbs.

Mudfish is the only Fish I've ever had on the line that just Snapped the Hook in Half.

It was a Eagle Claw Weedless Hook and I was using it for shiner fishing. A Big Mudfish grabbed it and I got to the boat and wasn't really sure what to do with it., so I grabbed the Hook with my Plyers with the Fish hanging over the side of the Boat and it went to flopping so hard it broke the Hook in half!

Brand New 5/0 Hook. Snapped it like a toothpick.

It's the start of their Mating Season. Play Stupid Game-Win Stupid Prizes.

No different than folks approaching a Buck in Rut then be surprised when they get gored. Or trying to pick up a Bear Cub you found while out for a walk.

Or Whatever Silly Thing it is that People do to Nature then are surprised when things go wrong.

Been here over 20 years now. Never been chased by one. Have has them Posture Up next t my small boat, again during the Pre-Mating Season when they are establishing Territory, but never have had one attack me.

What’s the story on the dc764c? 1/4 - 1&1/2? Is that legit? Broom handle with tip to throw 1/4?

This is a big a$$ mudfish.

Question, why do you trim the top of the skirt?  Also, when feeling the bite, is it the usually double tap/tug or do you feel the use move away or do you feel it getting engulfed?

Too much thinking, you feel set the hook. You feel and try to figure it out you lose the fish, don't think, REACT.
I think that all I'll say about the rules is; it depends, there seems to be a lot of variables involved, this is why I keep mentioning experiment, try different colors, sizes, shapes, depths, and speeds. Time of day enters into it also.
