Matt's MOST EMBARASSING Moment

FISHING FAIL and it happened in a tournament! Not weighing in anything at all would have been better than this mess! Weighing an entire 5 bass limit for less than 5 lbs was a really sobering experience. 

Thanks for listening to this embarassing story. Its all in good fun, we've all had those tough days we don't forget but that's what keeps us coming back for more. Don't let my experience deter you, Collins Lake is an awesome fishery! Here is the link to Tim telling the story of his 15 lber: https://youtu.be/pJt8qY0S6gY

What's the Craziest Thing You've Ever Hooked While Fishing?? Here's Matt's Story!

Crazy things happen on the lake! We plan to catch fish but sometimes we hook birds, animals, and who knows what else! What's the craziest thing you've ever caught? Here's the story of  Matt's most bizarre experiences!

The Osprey is understandable. The bird is curious and if you've thrown a swimbait for any length of time you've probably had a close call. But what was the beaver thinking? That one is just crazy!

In case you find yourself in this kind of situation there are a few tools that will make it a little easier to free your accidental catch. A net, pliers, and wire cutters are essential to getting the job done cleanly. With smaller animals simply roll them in the net and work through the mesh to free the hooks. This eliminates the danger to humans of being pecked, clawed, etc... and it restricts the animal's movement so it doesn't hurt itself while panicking.
