    Well my grandpa once one a contest in the paper for telling a story something like this...

    He had been fishing for catfish on the MO River one afternoon and had caught a few small ones. But, all of the sudden his pole bent over like it had never bent before! After 3 hours of fighting this beast of the deep, he had gotten a glimpse of the fish. The closer the fish got to the boat the more the river seemed to be going down...
    Since the fish obviously couldn't fit in the boat they rowed to shore and pulled the fish in...
    The river went down 3 feet that day!

    A couple of years ago in late October I was fishing crappies . There was a small flock of Mallards feeding on a weed edge, no more than 50 yards from me. I heard a commotion and turned to see them taking off. I then noticed something swimming towards me. I thought it was a muskrat or beaver. As it approached my boat I could see it was a Musky with a large drake Mallard in its mouth. He tried to dive but was having troubles because of the duck thrashing around in its mouth. After about 3 attempts he went under my boat on one side, 10 seconds later the duck popped up on the other side. Before the duck made 2 looks around and took off I had the Musky on my crappie pole. 4 pound test and a #14 treble hook! Luckly he had the hook in the corner of his mouth and must have been tired from the duck and sluggish from the cold water. I still wonder what the line class record is for Tiger Muskys, but this fish was 47" on 4# test. Thank God the Duck got away, I did not have a Duck stamp!

    Oh man, reminded me of something...

    When my dad and I went fishing in Canada a few years back we had a great time. One of my weirdest fishing experiences happened up there though.
    Anyways, the River system we were fishing (Winnepeg maybe?) had a few connecting lakes on it. And those lakes have a good amount of rocks in them... Well, one evening while fishing one of the lakes, with one of the new (then they were new) lizard tubes for smallies, I get what I thought was a bite and then the line breaks---snag right? Well, no. After we finished fishing for the day we had an assorted bag of fish: northerns, walleye, and a few smallies. After cleaning the fish and looking what is in the stomach of one of the northerns guess what I find!?!? I found the exact same lizard tube I was fishing with that was "broke off on a rock."

    I still have that lure! Kind of a good luck charm I guess.
