The utterance, when a big black tip takes and you forgot to loosen your drag,

you make while watching your tackle ski off into the distance.

I said the same thing the day that actually happened to me, only this time it was a 12kg sand shark. I had to go for a swim to get my tackle back, and I still landed the bugger!

lol guys i had the same experience a long time ago 10 years to be exact

i used to live in shelly beach and often fished in the st micheals river one day while leaving ny rod jammed inbetween a crack in the bridge it suddenly took of and hey guess what i went straight in after it.

to my amazement it was 2.3kg stumpie on bread as bait as well

so i guess sometimes u have to work for what you want

cheers riymos

I said the same thing when I was trawling off whaling station yesterday and stumbled across a complete marlin rig (with teaser, leader, soft lure and double hook trace) floating in the water. I doubled back and managed to net it. It is brand new and must be worth more than R650!! What a catch!!
Cheers

That Saying got out of my mouth a few years ago when fishing in a gully at Port Edward for blacktail with a christmas trace and No 8 hooks, and i saw a skate/ray, wingspan (~1.8m), sail into the gully, chasing a shoal of karanteen, i just held my 8ft rod in amazement of this creature, wacthing it sail thorugh the water, and then it got close to my line, the next thing was me being pulled in over the rocks and almost in to the deep blue, rod in hand...I managed to release my drag in time, and then a sound i never thought possible, my little coffee grinder, running at the speed of light, i burnt my hand trying to hold the spool, took me about 150m out the gully and then cut me off...What a feeling, i just stood there for a few minutes, with my buddies behind me, and we just looked at each other and all we could say was EISHHHH, and a few colourful words after that...What a feeling...especially since i stood absolutely no cahnce of landing that monster....Best 5minutes of my life....I hope my girlfriend doesnt read this:D

Hi MJ,

I assume it parted on the knot at the nose of the teaser, because the rest of the rig was 100% intact.
I got two stretches (couta) on bonnie dead baits rigged to living lip, but unfortunately lost them both.

Cheers

Guys

Seems us Vaalies are satisfied with much less, I mean, eeeeeeesh is quite frequently uttered by myself but the difference is that it's when a nice LGF bites and I just completely miss the setting of the hook. I don't even have to lose a LGf or tackle, although I have lost both before, thankfully the tackle was only once, Yes forgot the drag and some River Carp nudged my tackle straight off their rest into the rivier without touching any part of the bank.

Glad to see I'm also just Human, eish?

Happy Hunting those LGF's
