The Fish You Never See

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

Splash_4

It's the splash. That noise you hear behind you, up stream, or on the other side of the boat. You know, when it's just getting dark.

Possibly catching a glimpse of the water splashing down, or a tail slipping back into the water. Just when you'd given up hope that there were even fish to be had where you decided to wet a line. That stupid little sound that makes you stay an extra hour.

This particular splash was a bit bigger than normal. What do you think made it?

Looks like a whale fluke hitting the water.

Andy,I've actually wondered myself how many times a muskrat, beaver, or some other vermin has tricked me into fishing into total darkness... Many I'm sure.Blue Ox,Love that movie. I think I watched it 50 times as a kid.The Fish was actually a marlin of the coast of Baja about an hour north of Cabo.

It's the Predator chasing after Arnold again.

It looks like a tarpon or a bonefish on the flats.

I've done that many times. It usually happens after I've caught 0 fish and the sun is setting. I know that it's probably a muskrat but the chance of catching the fish of a lifetime makes me stay. I'll never learn.
