Had an encounter with Stubby McGar over the weekend. Sight fished with a chunk of cutbait from the top of a spillway
Dude, that's messed up. And a kinda cool catch!
Just goes to show you how tough and resilient them dinosaurs are. I once caught a channel cat that had his back half cut off by something sharp, clean cut like a knife. Right thru the spine and everything. Cant believe you can sever their spines and they dont die, much less get back to feeding and living a normal life.
"Yeah, I ain't got no tail. Fuck it, I'ma go eat. You got somethin to say about it, come see me after the show."
Fishn sure is neat
They're swimmin' with a limp
I remember Mike B caught a longnose with a similar issue...
And Tyler G caught a spotted gar with no eyes at all--not even eye sockets.
