when summer arrives i like to do some lazy(tight line) fishing so i went to the pier at edgewater and met some friends(who for some reason just love that pier). soon after that we were into a school of perch having some fun, as dusk came upon us i broke out my new catfish combo that i just bought(1 week ago for aprox. $120), put on a sinker and casted it out. just as it hit the water my buddy said i had a bite on my perch rod so i set down my cat rod reeled in the fish and as i was taking it off i heard a loud bang. some a##hole in a speed boat decided to buzz the pier and he snagged my brand new rod and off it went. needless to say i was pissed(to put it lightly) ,but i thought to my self i have to shake it off there is just nothing i could do aside from driving from boat ramp to boat ramp looking for that idiot, so instead of leaving immideatly i stayed a little while longer to cool off and maby try to fish a little more, but nothing was biting so at about 11:00 i packed it up and said goodbye to my friends. as i was walking down the pier still thinking about my new combo that i would never see again. my friend roy moved into the spot that i just vacated and casted out. in about 1 min he called my name and said comeback,i turned around and he said i just snagged your rod but it fell off right by the end of the pier. i thought no way because i tried this at least 100 times with no luck but i took out my 1oz rooster tail(the biggest hook i had), put it on my other rod and gave it another shot. wouldn't you know it after about 5 trys i managed to snag it and bring it up. to me this was unbeliveable not only did i get it back, it was in perferct shape no cracks in the rod and the reel was fine. man i must be one lucky guy. i dont think i have ever felt so happy in my life, although i would still smack that guy around if i could find out who he was.
