THE GOOD NEWS: Thrill of Victory : my buddy and I caught about 17 keeper tog to 7 plus lbs on TOG JIGS and many shorts for great action until 12 noon ORL. :)

THE BAD NEWS: Agony of defeat: I lost my favorite tog rod,it's a 3 year old 7 ft St. Croix Triumph and a Shimano Torium 14 with 65 lb braid on the spool.It has seem many great battles. It got ripped from my hand as I hooked a fish and went right to the bottom. I tried to snag it but couldn't get it back!:(

I know the bottom is heavily fished up there WHENEVER the weather permits, someone is GOING to catch the rod sooner or later. PLEASE if you have the goodness of heart to return it to me I'll give you a $100 cash on the spot, it has GREAT sentimental value to me. I have a baby on the way and a house to renovate before the baby arrives I don't have the cash to replace it new right now, even if you SEE anyone catch it let them know I'm looking for it PLEASE!

This fish could still make me smile even after my Favorite Rod & Reel went down to Davey Jones Locker.

I lift fish up then put them down!!

Lost one of my favorite set ups (Newell with penn rod) in front of the scotch caps last year, but have also pulled one out of the salt in the past, as has my uncle, so you never know.

My buddy and I were fishing just to the West of you, and he saw it happen. He thought you were snagged on the bottom. I have a couple of Torium reels myself, so I know your pain. I'm sure sooner or later someone will dredge it up. The question is, what kinda shape will it be in? Keep the faith buddy.

Thanks to all who're looking out for my setup!

Over the years I've caught a few setups too. the nicest was a Shimano Calcutta rod with a Penn 945, but the reel was junk by then. I did catch a few nice fish on the Calcutta before that snapped one day.

I lost a rod same way another time and managed to snag it back right away with another rod, not this time.Frown

I've a rod or 2 fly out of my hands 2 or 3 times over the years but also managed to grab them before they went down, NOT this time! Frown

Maybe I'll see it again, probably NOT! But it would sure be nice, I do love that one!

Several years back, we were fluking out of Freeport in about 60 feet of water, i would geuess two miles from shore, and my brother drops over a set up. A couple of drifts later and I hook dead weight, until I realize its his set up. You never know.
