Why don't I have this kind of luck?
« on: June 16, 2007, 12:08:03 PM »

I lost two rods in 7 feet of water last year during the last tournament and one was a Loomis with a curado on it. We took a camera back, dragged the bottom, and nothing. Then I read this story on a web site called Michigan Interactive.
                 http://www.fishweb.com/recreation/fishing/fishing.html

A Strange Story: Fishing Lake Michigamme, my first day on vacation, I was trolling crawler harnesses using two new counter reel and rod combos. While running over my favorite rock piles just west of Sundstrum Island I had both rods hit. Grabbing the starboard rod first I quickly reeled it up. Finding a small walleye on the hook I grabbed the port side rod to set the hook while sliding the other rod into the rod holder, or so I thought. I missed the rod holder sending the new rod and reel into the water with a fish on the line. Reeling in the 26 inch walleye on the port side made the loss of the new set-up less painful but it was still a $500 loss! I fished the same spot every day hoping to snag the rod but the rocks made it tough and I had no luck. I did catch a few more walleye. The very last day I was making my last pass when I had another hit. I set the hook and pulled up feeling the fish fighting. It felt like a big fish! I slowly worked it to the surface surprised to see it was only about 14 inches. I notice in it's mouth there were two crawler harnesses, the orange I was using today, and the white I was using when I lost my rod 5 days ago. I pulled the line up and sure enough, five foot later my new rod and reel was back in the boat. Who would of thought, Dave G.
