    Justin S c-ya on the water

    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.

    Sounds like good karma. I want to know if you were thinking of diving in to retrieve your pole after you saw it fall off next to the pier?

    Cooool Justin.

    Here's two things to remember -

    1.) A fishing buddy's Grandpa taught him how to get his rod back after a sheepshead pulled in his rod. He attached an old fashioned metal-clip
    stringer to his line, with all the clips opened. Got the rod on his 2nd or 3rd cast.

    2.) With any luck, that dope that buzzed you has a whole bunch of line
    wrapped up behind his prop and probably doesn't even know it.....yet..

    Hey Creekcrawler, thats a great little tidbit on how to retrieve a lost pole. I knew there was a reason I like you besides your signature. ;)
