Fishing a lake about an hour from the house on the one day winds were not whipping. The water was flat like glass and the pontoon boat lay on top of the water like a lazy frog too fat to move. As I move from the deep blue into the shallow water my eyes catch a glint of something big and sparkly.
“Wow…sunken treasure!” I think to myself rigging up a discarded treble hook and a ¼ weight. I felt my inner pirate boiling to the surface as I brought up the gold.
“Aaaaarrgghhhh….she’s been down there a bit too long, me thinks.”
Flueger rod and reel matched up perfectly and retails around 150-200 for the combo. The corrosion was far beyond my elbow grease revival magic so this goes in the trophy\relic room as opposed to the action section. The rod is a Medium\Fast action rod with very little hook-set power in the tip…probably wouldn’t have worked anyway.
Fish? I caught about 50 bass but nothing in the OMG section. After reviewing the photo thread, sunken treasure was the catch of the day.
My name is Matt and I’m a fishaholic.
