Pole Thief

Posted by Ryan Fifield | Posted in Fishing Reports | Posted on 06-08-2020

John and Justin joined us once again for a trip to remember! Mother Nature tried throwing us a curve ball, with 20 mph winds, but we smashed it out of the park! ⚾️ The cats were hungry and ready to play! There’s a really unbelievable story behind Justin’s big catch. I was helping Justin get his pole untangled, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw one of the poles go flying overboard. As the remaining bit of it headed into the water, I dived towards it. I managed to slightly get my fingertips on it, but it still slipped away. 🤦‍♂ Just like the movie, Jaws, we watched the pole go away from us and into the deep, dark, abyss. I tried casting and retrieving a weighted hook on the lake’s floor for roughly 15 minutes, with no luck. 🤷‍♂ I rigged another pole up with a minnow and casted it out to go back fishing. After a few minutes, that pole started to go tight. I grabbed it, set the hook, and took a few turns on the reel before I handed it to Justin. To my utter disbelief, I saw the pole that went overboard start to slowly appear, as I had hooked it! 😳🤣 I handed Justin the pole and grabbed the other pole that went overboard. I said to Justin, “Holy sh*t, the fish is still on it! 🧐😂 Take this rod and get this pole thief in the boat!” The thief ended up being a nice 10-pound cat, Justin’s PB! 😻😎🥳 The pole thief got sentenced to their deep fryer! 🤣

And, if that was not enough, we observed that day a colossal PAIR of golden eagles perched in the trees near our boat and a majestic bald eagle soaring above. 🦅 What an exciting day of fishing it was for us on Lake Champlain! 🎣 This is what makes my job the best in the world! 🌎 This father and son team caught and brought home three catfish for their family to sink their teeth into. 🤤😋🏆 We look forward to their return! Great job, guys!
