Fishing a pond in the CLT area today before the storms ran me off. Tried wacky rigging a worm for the first time today. Had already caught one on a chartreuse Buzz bait.
Tossed out the worm, got a bite and hooked into a 3/4 pound or so fish. He came up once, then dove back down. The line got heavier, but not as much fight. He started to come back up and I noticed something trailing him by a few inches. I figured one of his buddies was trailing him. As I got him in closer, I saw it was definitely a bud, but not the kind I was thinking of....

definitely one of the stranger things I've had happen fishing...

Haha...no kidding. And he didn't even offer me one.

I'm still perplexed on this one... As he was coming up, and I was realizing what it was, my brain was trying to process it. I was thinking the line had some how got wrapped around the tab...but no. The hook was literally buried into the can...and it was pretty much a round spot where the hook went in. The fish was just on the line like a stringer.

Crazy stuff.

i should send this to TruTurn...

One in a million catch. I bet you put a can in the water and try to set the hook it will never happen.

As you can see it's definitely a catch and release pond...that's probably one of the more innocuous things "other than fish" that could come out of that body of water.
1st wacky rig catch was definitely wacky...

A week ago got a smallish bass maybe 3/4 pounder on a trick worm as I was letting him play out I noticed another bass was chasing trying to take the worm away from him. Thought at first ya caugt two bass on one worm but the BUD makes it two!

Ironically, it was a zoom trick worm....and that's what I thought was happening, another bass. I've had that happen before.

It would be nearly impossible to stick that can without a fish on there. To have the hook come out like that and stick the can is incredible.

I did have a partner in a club tournament set into the side of a 16 oz pepsi bottle that was wedged in the rocks.

Wives all over NC are going to be in serious trouble - once word gets out that our lakes are stocked with free beers in addition to fish they will really be fishing widows, lol
