Saw a bass come out of the water and try to take a crow off a branch by the foot....unsuccessfully. Wonder if he (the bass) thought he was after an ordinary blackbird?
We have the "big fish after the hooked fish" thing happen quite a bit in the farm ponds we frequent. In about 35 such "event", only once have we ever hooked the big fish. We have let them run off a full line into the backing even, for "swallow" time. Often we retrieve a completely scaled little fish.
