    Default Lost and found spook jr - again

    I lost one of my spook jr plugs to a redfish a couple of weeks ago. The fish seemed to be hooked well but cut my leader on an ouster after a short fight. What can you do right? It happens. This is the third time I've had it happen in three years. The previous two times I found the plug about two weeks later. Both times the plug was found hung up on some marsh grass within 100' of where it got cut off. For that reason I was thinking I'd find this one as well and, sure enough, I found it today while out fishing. It was only about 50' from where it got cut off. The other two times one of the hooks were corroded off but this time both hooks were still attached. This plug had all the barbs crushed which, I suspect, is what accounts for that.
    Pretty interesting to me that I've had three go and three come back.

    Funny, I had a jitterbug like that. Found it myself floating near the bank on Lake Wylie. Lost it in a pond and found it again 10 months later. Lost it again in same pond and found it a week later. I finally broke it but still have the front half always hoping I would find the back half some day.

    Maybe we need to start a "one that got away AND came back"?

    Don't know if it qualifies or not, partner knocked his new baitcasting rig out of boat at 50+ MPH, turned around and dropped a Hopkins spoon over in 90 feet of water and snagged the tip guide on first try.
