I've already posted this on Fishing Notebook on Facebook..... but I know a lot of ya'll aren't facebookers and it was SO bizarre, I wanted to share!  Cap'n Ed and I have been fishing Sooner quite a bit
lately.  We did REALLY good Sunday before last, and were hoping to repeat it!  It didn't happen.  Saturday was really tough, we ended up with ONE striper and around 12 hybrid, along with a bunch of white perch and..........catfish.  Yikes!!  We were thinking Sunday would be different.  Since the fish didn't really eat much Saturday, they HAD to eat Sunday.  Right???  Um.......nope!  I caught a smallish hybrid right off the bat, and then nothing else for a couple hours!  Then, we decided to check somewhere different and things turned around!!!  I caught a striper almost immediately ON A TOPWATER LURE!  Ed caught a couple, then he hooked into something BIG!  We fired up the GoPro, and he went from one side of the boat, to the other.  From the front of the boat, to the back.  When he FINALLY got it up where we could see it, it was a really pretty, big......orange.....CARP!  CRAPOLA!!  To make a long story short, we ended up with 6 stripers (they were all VERY skinny) I caught a decent hybrid, again on topwater, several channel cats, a sandbass and Ed landed a NICE 71/2 lb lmb.  Had a ton of fun, fishing a completely different way. 

Now for the bizarre part.  Saturday, I had all my lines in.  We were using gizzard shad, about 4 inchers.  One of mine got bumped, HARD, and I went on point......waiting for that rod tip to bury itself in the water.  Then.....NOTHING.  I decided to check on my shad, figured he was dead since he got bumped pretty hard.  At first, I thought I'd tangled up with one of Ed's lines, but then I realized there wasn't another line.  OR another hook.  What there was, was a cute little three and a half inch THREADFIN, on the hook with my GIZZARD!!  Holy crap!!!  That fish deposited his OWN shad, on the hook with MINE!  Poor thing was just looking for lunch and ended up not getting it, but loosing his BREAKFAST too!!  I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own two eyes!!  Anyway.......here's the pics.

That is just proof that you have to stay off the sauce when baiting your hook!

You're so funny TMJ.  Since I've had that happen, I've had a couple guides tell me they have it happen every now and then too....proof that Maple Crown had NOTHING to do with it.
