I was throwing a cast net 2-3 years ago below wheeler dam in the swift water and caught a needlefish... I brought it back to the cabin and showed the family and released it back.. it was about 10 inches long and 3/4 inch diameter.. I couldnt beleive it.. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http...ed=0CIsBEPwdMA4

Dropped my lure in front of a cottonmouth and caught it... Also below old hickory dam last year I was on my boat and some Mexicans on the bank caught a eel, they asked me to take it off the hook... Lol... Well that was the slimiest bass-turd I have ever grabbed a hold of.

I've also caught ducks while grass carp fishing in ponds. Not that strange considering ducks live eating white bread.

My buddy caught a rock bass last year that had part of a hook coming out its butt hole.

oh I have reeled in a rock too \:D last time I caught sculpin, I was wading a creek at night in between turkey hunts on public land. With a flashlight I was catching banded sculpin, studfish, tadpoles, and tons of crawfish with my bare hands. I have caught logperch in the cast net on occasion.

Never seen or caught a mud puppy...

Caught an owl one night while bass fishing. I cast out a spinnerbait and suddenly felt the line jerk without hearing the spinnerbait hit the water. After a pretty weird fight with my line being up in the air, I finally reeled in a screech owl. The spinnerbait was in one of his feet or whatever you call them on an owl. I was finally able to net him and I just cut the fishing line. I tried to pull the hook out with a pair of needle nose pliers but the hook fell out while the owl was flopping around in the net.

When the owl finally flew off after flopping around in the boat for a while, I was not sure who was shook up more: him or me. \:D

I once caught a pipeline hanger fishing under a bridge. I was using 80# line on my catfish pole. Hanger weighed about 50#. Once I got it loose from the bottom it made me think I had a fish.

I have caught or seen a little bit of everything caught - rocks, shoes, beer cans, fishing plugs, rod & reel, etc.

The most odd was that a few years ago I caugt a Hellbender while sauger fishing at Cordell Hull. I had no idea what it was until we did some research. We knew it was too big to be a water dog or mud puppy. It looked like a swamp monster to me. \:\) It was not too happy to have a sauger jig and stinger hook in its side. It latched on to a pair of pliars as we were trying to get it unhooked. The reasearch that we did said that they were relatively calm until provoked. I guess having 4 hooks in it along with being pulled backwards from 50 ft of water to the surface was enough to provoke it. \:\)

I pray to fish until my dying day. When it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray, when in the Lord's safe landing net & I'm at peace that in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

This lamprey was stuck on the side of a big grass carp.
