suprise on the end of my line

went fishing along some shore line in RI yesterday afternoon, to kill some time and work on my tan. i covered allot of ground and was getting skunked. . then i saw the true sign that all fisherman / women look for the birds. In the distance i saw huge swarms of birds diving in the water. So i packed up and headed on over was about a miles walk on the rocks. tough trek for a fat guy like myself. by the time i got the birds had flown away, but i decided to toss some stuff out there and hope for the best. I threw everything i had accept the one lure ( now one of my fav's) i hated and could never get to work right. First cast the lure was right on point BAM! top water action, resulted in a nice Blue. I know people are against blues but on a afternoon killing time was a fun catch on light tackle. having a little more confidence in this plug know i toss it back out. BAM! huge explosion on the water ~ miss ~ BAM another one ~miss ~ Third time was hold onto your gym shorts. hit my plug with great vengeance and furious angry and darted out to the open water stripping my reel seemingly forever. i made up some ground on it, the fish got close to the shore i still couldn't see what i was, i had no clue what was on the end of my line. This fish was not done yet, made another break for it stripping me down to almost a 1/4 spool left. I was startinf to build quit the crowd now, the fish was thrashing on top. I felt like a little kid catching its first bluegill. I'm thinking this has to be a monster blue fish, with my rod bend over i decided enough was enough, knowing the fish was beat i brought it in, got it to the rocks and what did i find. something that i have only caught in Florida and certainly not from shore and not in RI before. . I know alot of you prob catch these all the time, but for me this was a first from shore here in RI and a great ending to a day i was almost skunked.

i actually gave it away to a couple that was on thier first date fishing. i gave them the blue feesh to, they ended the date and went off to cook and clean the feesh together, instead of going to dinner.

Thats cool.

That happened to me in the canal about 3 years ago. I was throwing this bug ugly silver polaris I had made at some breaking bass and I didn't hook up so I was reeling it in as fast as I could to get a second cast on them before they were out of range it and wham, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

This was at murderers row and I've never seen them there before or since...
