From this story in the Lacrosse Tribune:
_Anglers might have a tendency to stretch the truth sometimes, but it's tough to top Bruce Chandler's fishing story. The Holmen bass fisherman two weeks ago was casting an Ish's Phat Frog fishing lure in a Mississippi River slough near Goose Island when a coyote sprang from the tall grass on shore, leaped into the water and latched onto it. "In a blink of an eye, it was that quick. It looked as shocked as I was," said Chandler, 62. The adult coyote, estimated at 25 to 30 pounds, pulled one way, Chandler the other. "All I thought was that coyote had my $9 frog that I had just bought and I wanted it back," said Chandler, who used his trolling motor to pull the coyote into open water. "Once I got it out of the weeds and into open water, it became pretty submissive," Chandler said.
