1. i was fishing on the skyway bridge in st. petersburg fl .using live bait,i thru my bate in the ocean, and waited for a bite.i was fishing about 2 hours with no luck. ...more then my wife called on my cell phone.i heard it rigging in my van so i set my pole down carefully , and went to pick it up,she answered and,asked how it was going ,i told her not to well,as i turned around to check my fishing rod{{ it was gone.i mean gone no sign of it anywhere,i run to the bridge edge and peered over to the water.there i saw the last moments of my rod and reel heading for the bottom. never to know what giant fish took my gear to the bottom of the gulf.

      Do something other than fishing and your bound to catch something. Sorry you lost your gear that really sucks. Next time leave tge bail open and place your line ...more around a can. Tgen you’ll hear the fish. My guess is the wait and watch than BAM. The ole sneak attack.
