I was fishin in new west(i know new west is tidal but went with freshwater anyways) for sturgs and caught this...



Funny thing i was there a month or 2 ago and a guy told me he caught a clam(i assume its a mussel) and I told him I need photo evidence, and then low and behold I go and catch one, first time for everything I guess.

I've pulled those out of a lake casting a spoon in Sask. The thing actually clamped around the hook - very much a fluke, but I too have done it.

Not the first time, I've caught a few in my days. @low tide some spots you can find tons of em'
I didn't mean I was the first, I meant first time I have seen a mussel actually latch on to a hook. Last time I went there i brought a 6 foot log off the bottom so I guess I am making progress, at least it was alive. :thumbup:

In sask its a fluke, here in B.C. only the truly skilled can accomplish such a feat, its like catchin a fly with chopsticks

Just to clarify I wasn't posting this to make it look like I have accomplished an amazing feat, I was more interested to see if anyone else had encountered some weird things snag or latch on to their hook when fishing.

When I lived in Saskatchewan, this sort of thing happened with too much regularity. My kids and I would often pull up a clam from Diefenbaker Lake or Buffalo Pound Lake. They fight like a small walleye :) Once, when I was steelhead fishing on the Vedder, I caught a crayfish on my fly - it clamped on and didn't let go until I almost had it in my hand. I should have kept it because it was the only thing I caught that day that was big enough to eat. Wierd.

I can top that... Last year when I was fishing off some log booms out near Mission I caught a blue crayfish type creature. I am still not sure what it was, but it looked like a little lobster. I was fishing with a fake plastic roe sac. The thing thought it was dinner because he would not let it go.

How about "catching" a rock ???

A few weeks back I was trolling in a lake and decided to get a little bit closer to a shoal I had been trying. Thought I felt a tug so tried to set the hook. Felt some weight on the line but no movement/head shake so thought I had snagged some weeds. Reeled in my line to find a 2 - 3 inch round rock on my line. The hook had somehow wedged itself into a small hole in the rock. It fell out on it's own as soon as I grabbed the rock.

That was the only thing I caught the entire day!!

I've done that with a jig on the Vedder... hook caught in a little groove. Little thing put up a good fight but was ultimately outmatched. Threw it back so that it can grow up to be a bigger rock.

I too caught a rock once when I was fishing the Chilcotin River above Bull Canyon. Rock was shaped like a fat bagel and there was a groove in the rock that circled through the hole, most likely held some sort of rope. This was quite likely a primitive device. I found it wierd catching that one rock considering all the other potentials in the river, even at that spot.
