Brings a whole new meaning to "Fishing Rodeo"  --099-780 I wonder if he would be interested in our Walleye Blast next year? After a couple of knuckles, it would be straight to the bottom.  ##$#@#$%

Haha that is a pretty cool video.  It appears a GoPro on the boats is the new big thing.

Looks to me like it was more of slipping out of the boat, than jumping in,
but made the best out of the situation.  Anyway, he has quite a fishing story to tell.

I agree the only way I'm flipping a fish is with some very heavy braid, however it's a good way to break a rod.

As I looked at it again, it almost looked like it was set up just for a goofy video.  That bass didn't seem to have much fight in him?

When we lived in Georgia we fished from the shore line along Lanier. Never owned a boat. On the O’Niel Outdoor radio show he recommended a fishing guide. So, I hired him for a striper ⅓ day fishing for me and my then 9 year old son.

Off we go out on the lake and I hooked onto a big striper. Not being a fisherman, I thought you were supposed to pull, slack iff, pull again. After the fish got loose the guide said to keep the line taunt if I ever get another hit. He then went on the radio to tell some of the other guides that the big stripper everyone knew about just got let loose by a fishing noob.

Needless to day, more fishing boats started to come into our general area.

A little while later, my son git a bite! He kept the line tight and hauled in the biggest fish he or I ever caught!

I turned to the guide and asked if he knew any taxidermist for my son’s fish. He said “for that little fish?”.

I told him the biggest thing we ever caught before this,  other than rocks or snags, were sunnies.

So, he gave me the name and address and off we went and made arrangements to get it mounted.

We got it mounted with a little plaque with my son’s name, lake, date if catch (June, 1999) and that mount has moved with us across the country on each move. He’s there right now in the living room above our TV. 24” Stripper.

Never did get anything bigger since.

Maybe things will change when we get to Florida and hire a Captain to take us out to the Gulf.

May have to use fishing poles as I won’t likely be allowed to bring  grenades.

No grenades Flint.  No car batteries, no generators, no crank telephones - - come on man, you been hanging out with too many of those corrupt folks up in the northeast!  Us refined rednecks would never dream of resorting to such tactics . . . really!
