Kev and the Flying Rainbow

Post By: anglerwannabe      Posted: 10/31/2018 4:49:43 PM     Points: 57799    
Couple weeks ago Kev and I fished Estes Lake and had a blast. Also Kev hooked a fish so hard it flew out of the water and he counted it as a catch and I say Ney ney.

Also if you notice our only lure is the pink tube jig I made a thread about a couple days ago,

Watch the vid and you decide if it's a catch or not and let us know! lol

There is some adult language in the vid

No possession, no catch.


At best it’s a fumble!!!!

Lol! Was there a pot of gold at that end of that 🌈 (🎣)? Or was ya trying to build up your mojo(☘️) by rubbing the fish? Because ya gotta at least touch the line for it to count aka quick release! 😜 Good Times guys! 👍🍻

I'm still sticking with Jedi Mind Trick ! Two hands out, palms up . the classic Mind Control Posture . I'm not sure that fish even touched the hook! I think that Kev aka " Dink Vader " just willed that fish to jump into his lap ! Should be worth 2!!

Good stuff guys! And truth be told... THAT... was the catch that will make that a memorable trip !! The amount of fish, or how big , is really insignificant . I'd give Kev 2 points just for that !

haha good stuff, if it wasn't on video and you were fishing solo, i'd count it but fishing with a buddy i'd say no catch

Everybody is against me lol.

I believe the fish started the mocking, everybody else just played along. Did you see the stare down from the fish as it gave you the fish finger?

Count it. Contact was made.

Thats not a rainbow trout. Its the rare Lake Estes pirahna grass carp. You are lucky to be alive Kevo! That thing went for the jugular and only your quick reflexes saved your life! Im sure Fishseal can back me up on this. Everyone should use caution at Estes...only found there and they are DEADLY.

Don't worry Kev, just because you think everyone is against you, doesn't mean it's not true. lol

Concensus is NO CATCH! You don't get to make a rule AFTER the fact. lol
 Reply by: Kev-o      Posted: 11/2/2018 8:15:40 AM     Points: 62071    
That’s always been the rule, you gotta touch it or vise versa. This grievance comes from the master of the “quick release”. Oh the irony.....
 Reply by: bharper      Posted: 11/2/2018 9:08:48 AM     Points: 241    
Kev-O - The only one against you was the fish! 😜 Glad you guys had a good day! 👍 Such a beautiful area to fish.
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 11/2/2018 10:52:24 AM     Points: 57799    
if I use your rule.. I catch EVERY fish that bites! Because technically the fish bit the lure, the lure is attached to the line, the line touches the rod and is attached to the reel and I am holding the rod and reel, thereby "touching" the fish.

AND if you tried to ctach the fish with your hands instead of duck.... I MAYBE would concede a catch. lol That part of the vid still makes me laugh so hard it hurts my chest.

AWB That sounds a bit like the old "The leg bone is connected to the thigh bone song " And I still think contact without hooking should count as 2 fish !

Kev, what is your he verdict?
 Reply by: Kev-o      Posted: 11/8/2018 9:27:02 PM     Points: 62071    
It HIT me. Counts.
 Reply by: Kithme      Posted: 11/9/2018 6:14:52 AM     Points: 371    

Good job on the quick release.
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 11/9/2018 6:57:27 AM     Points: 57799    
the FISH HIT you... so THE fish CAUGHT you!

fish = 1
Kev = minus 2

You know AWB. The more you comment on this thread. The more scent of " Weasel " I'm picking up here. Could this be a fish for bragging rights ? Still standing by Kev-o. If Dink Vader can pull a fish out of the water, and get it to sit on his lap, no less. It should count.

At least smelly is on my side lol. We’ll see what he has to say when the shoe is on the other foot eh?
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 11/9/2018 6:59:26 PM     Points: 57799    
Does this look like a catch to you? Or is it more like.. NO NO PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!!!!!!! lol
 Reply by: Smelly      Posted: 11/10/2018 4:49:40 PM     Points: 24246    
Ok. I didn't want to embarrass "Dink" . But I gotta do, what I gotta do. I said he was a Jedi. Didn't say he was very ... good.. at being a Jedi. Word has it he got "Bonked" a few times during levitation class (space junk can be mighty heavy !). Thus the reason for the somewhat skittish posture. Still picking up whiffs of Au Du Weasel ! LOL :)
