      Beautiful! And the fish dont look bad either! πŸ™ƒ Was fishing at home last week with a top water popper. Pulled in a big ol dinner plate bluegill. While removing ...more the lure, my dog took off after something and I turned my head for a split second and that fish flipped its tail and sank a treble in my thumb! Couldn't push the barb up through my thumb to cut it! Had to do the string trick. Hurt like hell coming out, but never bothered me again! So suprised it wasn't sore for a month!
    10. Debbie F 0
      Robert, thank you sir. I will sport an ugly in knee for the rest of the summer but hey, I got the fish!!!

      a torn up knee and some blood never hurt anyone as bad as the tears from when the fish gets away, win or lose, always see the fight through to the end, which in ...more this case ends with that crappie breaded and deep fried!!!....lolπŸ˜†
