I caught a rock one time that was bigger than a softball.

I caught a rod and reel when i was about 9, that my dad had thrown in the lake when he was 11, It was pretty neat.

My grandad lives on a 700+ acre lake in southwest memphis, and was in the boat when my dad threw it in the water out of frustration, was also in the boat when i pulled up the old rod. Really neat to me, I loved telling him what i had caught!

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...

hey hey, good I'm not alone in reeling in a rock \:D

A bundle of oregano. Or was it thyme or rosemary? I don't remember. But I was fishing in Gulf Islands Nat'l park and hooked something. Reeled it in, and it was a bundle of herbs (the legal kind).

last year my family and I was fishing the swift water below wheeler dam and I had a anchor tied with a yellow rope to the front of the boat.. we got ready to move and the anchor was hung up and would not let go..I had to cut the line and lost my (store bought) anchor.. we moved to another spot.. probably 100 feet away ..I made a cast and hooked something.. I reeled it in and it was a blue rope with a (store bought) anchor attached... I tied it on and went right on fishing..LOL

I've seen a hellbender while fishing, but didn't actually catch it. It was big though...nearly 2 feet long.

Other stuff...
- a mussel or two,
- a crappie with a lamprey attached
- My dad and I caught the same bass at the same time (it ate both of our lures and we reeled it in together)
- A couple of rocks (mostly with crankbaits)
- Grass carp on a crankbait (9 lbs)
- 2 or 3 times had bass eat the bream I was reeling in
- My son and I caught a flathead catfish last year in a pay lake that supposedly only had channel cats in it (owner was pretty surprised!)
a buddy and I once caught the same bullhead at the same time... He took both our baits in a row

Underwear, rocks, a 30 pound anchor, and a duck I guess are the strangest things I can remember catching.

I set the hook on the anchor with a rattletrap (at least that's what I think I was throwing) and you talk about a fight. It had probably 30-40 foot of rope on it. When the rope got tight I had no clue what I had. I eased the boat up and the anchor rope came into view.

The duck I caught on a jig. The wind caught the jig (crappie jig) and the duck flew right into it. 6lb braided line that was 2lb diameter. Try pulling that in by hand with a duck trying to get under docks on you. I cut the hook and ran it back out. He was happy to get set free.

Jet Ski. In a tournament half way back in a 400-500 yard long creek channel (cove) and jet ski came hauling in 45mph 20 ft from us. Got to the back of the cove, turned around, and headed out... again hauling balls. My partner dropped his pole, grabbed another with a football jig and whizzed it at least 1,000 mph at them. Busted the cover for the front console on the ski. As they stopped my buddy started yelling and jumped in the driver seat to give chase I guess. They took off scared to death, yanking my buddies pole off the boat. I was stunned at the whole situation and I couldn't stop laughing at how mad he was, even though it pissed me off too! Looking back, he could have killed one of them with that jig! Not to mention, it was a teen with his girlfriend on the ski.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

You're never to old to learn something stupid.
