    I once caught the fisherman on the other side of the boat.   We struggled for some time trying to reel each other in.  Finally the line broke and the other fisherman hauled in my gear.   Thank you very much.

    An eel. It was pretty gross because it got itself all tangled up in the line.

    Technically, I didn't catch this but a local fisherman did.... I was working at the county coroner's office (near Lake Ontario) and someone "caught" part of someone's leg, complete with a foot.  No one claimed it, which seems odd since I would think the owner, or the family of this person, would be looking for it!

    I once caught 2 squid with a regular fishing lure to this day i still have no idea how their tentacles would have snagged. Also i once caught a boot, cartoon-like i know but it happens.

    I honestly caught a bra in a pass in Florida. My brother caught a little eel as well off of Naples Pier.

    It nearly put me off fishin'. When I was a wee lass, we went to a Trout Pond where I caught a young trout by the tail.

    It nearly had the whole family in the drink! We were on shore.

    If you ever catch a big fish by the tail, cut your line. Let go.

    I did catch a bit of a rig, with a better hook and weight than I had. Thanks
