    Default Dumb Dumb Dumb!--how to lose a big fish

    I hooked what I think was either a good sized catfish or a carp in a local pond today. Got a good hookset and handled several surges and drag screams, then stupidly clamped on the line as I switched the rod to my other hand.--he lunged at that very moment and broke off. Stoopid...

    Long as you learn from it, can be a positive experience too I suppose. Here's hoping next time you land it!
