One time I was fishing alone at night for stripers, throwing big Cordell Redfins. I was catching quite a few fish - not any big ones, but there were schoolies busting bait all around, and the action was fast.

Anyway, at one point I landed a small striper that was probably about 20 inches long, and as I lifted him into the boat, he came unhooked and fell in the floorboard of my boat. I set down my rod and absentmindedly laid the Redfin in my boat seat, and then I grabbed the striper off the floor of my boat and tossed him back in the lake.

And that's where I messed up. I forgot the Redfin was sitting in my seat, and I sat back down on it. Two prongs of the treble hooks went right through the coveralls and jeans I was wearing and stuck me right in the butt. And at the same time, a few more prongs of the treble hooks went into the vinyl cover of my boat seat. So then the hooks were in my butt, and more hooks were in my seat, and the Redfin was holding the seat against my butt so that I could neither remove the seat from my butt nor get a hand into a place where I could remove the hooks from my backside.

I had to remove the seat from the pedestal, drive the boat back to the ramp with the pedestal seat sitting on top of the other seat (THANK GOD the lake was deserted and I didn't have to cross any boat wakes and drive the hooks further into my butt), then trailer my boat with the boat seat on my butt, and then drive back to my girlfriend's apartment with the pedestal seat sitting on top of my driver's seat in my car. At that point, with the assistance of my girlfriend, we decided my coveralls and jeans were less expensive than a replacement boat seat, so we cut the seat out of my pants, got the hooks out of my butt, and then carefully removed the other hooks from the boat seat with minimal damage.

So I guess the strangest thing I've caught while fishing is my own butt, though at least I did learn a valuable lesson about looking where I sit.

Sounds like that hurt a bit, but the mental image is cracking me up!!

i once caught a condom on a bandit crankbait in 10 feet of water, I once caught some fishing line around a dock on a spinnerbait that had a push button rod like a kid would use on one end and a 3 lb largemouth on the other end. my brother caught a bra on day and I must say the owner was well gifted lol.

Caught a $300 slalom ski on Priest one summer. Casted a crank bait near a downed log and snagged the boot. It was totally under water when I snagged it or someone would have surely grabbed it. I hope the skier wasn't stuck under the log!!

I caught a sea robin once as well as a toad fish. Both were ugly as sin. When I was about 13 I was casting in the back yard and caught a housecat. I also caught a filleted red fish in the intercostal waterway. The tide was going out and it put up a really good fight.

Foul hooked a paddlefish around the tail once. Also watched my dad hook an aligator right on top of the head with a popping bug on a fly rod. We were at Disney World and its about the only thing I remember from the trip.
