Default Tail Shakers and Heartbreakers

With Cranks post, it got me to thinking. Let us hear of some of your epic battles that just fell an inch short. We all fish for a reason. Some of us for the competition and some just for sport. I like to use it as a reboot time to clear my head, but there is always that little something in there of gratification when lipping a big girl with that thick tough skin around her mouth. You know the kind that separate those from dinks to chunks.

I guess one of my biggest heartbreaks came in Nov of 2011 where I locked my thumb on the reel when a fish I would estimate as my first Dbl D hit less that a foot away from the tip of my rod. I have never snapped off CXX. I have straightened several hooks, including heavy flipping and super line Gammys, but never popped it or broke off a fish. I just flinched, set the hook, and had the spool pinned with my thumb and to my knees I went after the kapow!

I have a debate from time to time with a 20+ year fishing partner. He claims I knocked a hook out of a beast mouth trying to net her. I keep telling him, I didn't have the net in the water and the fish head shook at the side of the aluminum boat. I heard the bullet weight ting off the side and watched the hook fly out hahahaha. I guess we will go to the grave debating it because he isn't buying it still.
