Do you love big bluegill?
I was just thinking of all the strange catches I've had in the last 58 years.
A starling picked up a rooster tale I tied on to try out a new rod in the back yard. Two seagulls ate my minnow, A mallard and a black duck got hooked when they swam by unattended popping bugs took two times to learn my lesson. A low flying pelican got tangled in the line from my surf rod and became an attack pelican while I cut it free. Two baby alligators ate my minnows (their mama was highly upset and I had to move to a new spot). I hooked a full Cooper river size gator (8 ft?) using a 10" bream for catfish bait it broke a seven foot med. action ugly stick. Various turtles.
