Captains Tales; Not every fish Caught gets Kept
My most memorable snook season 'Murphy's Law' moment happened about 10 years ago. My now late cousin and I were out snook fishing one night and I had just hooked a big one and he set his rod down in the boat to grab the landing net. Right when he goes to net my fish, his rod gets ripped out of the boat by another huge fish. We are both understandably upset, seeing as though it’s a very expensive rod and reel as well as a equally as nice of a fish of the end of the line. We finally land my fish and decide to pack it in and head back to the dock.
The next night I go back out there by myself, I fish the same exact area and cast my line out. My first cast I get snagged on something, pull up my cousins fishing rod and reel with the snook still attached to it (unfortunately dead and chewed up by crabs). I pick the dead snook up to throw it back into the water and accidentally step on the rod and break it. I gave my cousin back his broken rod the next day. He said, “I’m not gonna even ask!”
