Things you have to see to Believe

Post By: anglerwannabe      Posted: 10/21/2018 7:53:45 PM     Points: 57799    
So Kev and I had a pretty epic day at Estes today. Nothing big, all little slimer bows but we killed it. Then there are the things you have to see to believe.. the fish today were so aggressive they came right to the tube and even having less than 2 ft of line out, caught them at the tube. I got it on video.. you can actually see the fish take the jig! But funnier still, Kev set the hook on this itty bitty bow so hard it flew out of the water, hit him in the chest.. and bounced off his lap back into the lake! LOLOLOLOL Oh yeah, that's on video too! Yes there will be a YouTube video forthcoming.. might take me a week or two, but its happening!

Good to see you back out there and having a blast! Now Iíve been hit with the lure in the face as the fish spit it but not the fish hitting me in the chest! Kev-O at least it didnít hit you in the face! 🎣🤬

Nice that you are fishing but don't overdo it Jim. Estes is always a blast.

Glad to see you'r back at it. Course you realize. The fish don't necessarily see it the same way we do !

Thought I'd provide a little proof! In first pic you can clearly see it is NOT a catch as the lure is out of the fish's mouth! In the second pic if you look just below the reel on the left side of the tube, you'll see the poor thing trying to escape after Kev DUCK's!

Those Pictures of Kev . Just validates my theory on this . I'm telln ya. It's a " Jedi Mind Trick " . The Man doesn't even... NEED.. a hook !! With just his thoughts. he can .." will " .. the absolute smallest fish in the lake to him !! As far as I'm concerned, that second picture is proof positive of this !! DINK-VADER !!

I've fished Estes for years. I've never even seen a fish that small up there ! LMAO
