Just returned from a Bonefish trip and thought Id share a suprise catch with you. This is a Ocean Trigger and took a Clouser. Put up a hell of a fight on an 8 weight.

I love catching these suprise species on the fly.

Do you guys have any unusual catches to share?

I was recently crawling a large nymph across the bottom in Bull Run fishing for Smallmouth Bass and caught a two pound Channel Catfish. Blew my mind.

While fishing for Largemouth Bass today I was experimenting with a new fly I call "Hellgramite-Crawdad-Goose Turd". That is what it looks like. I was dragging it slowly across the bottom and got nailed hard. I had already caught a few small bass with it and this would have been a personal best, the way it took off and got into my backing so quickly. I had heard that there were big catfish in the pond and when the fish didn't even come close to the surface after five minutes of fight I figured I had hooked a catfish. It was a cat and it kept me busy for fifteen minutes. It measured twenty-nine inches long and weighed twelve pounds.

I do not catch many catfish on flies. Does anyone else?
