That reminds me of a girlfriend of my sister who after my sister’s wedding when cruising bars after the party was hailing down cops for rides to the next bar and she insisted it was a normal thing. Yeah it’s normal I guess if you’re a 24 year old smoking hottie but shesh was she diconnected from reality. But I saw cops give her a ride twice lol. She’s like, “Yeah I’ve been drinking and really shouldn’t be driving…. can you big strong guys give me a ride to club 21?” And off they went.
Yes she was a white chick and yes it was in Florida.
Believe it or not, when I was kid fishing with buddies on a local canal, we had a big snook grab a half dead shrimp …. on a Zebco…. that was sitting on the ground. Probably something like 8 or 10 test tops.
Like a scene from a movie like Sandlot, we all assume catfish when rod moved but as I was going to pick up the rod one in the group saw the line flash in the water which led to a loud scream…SNNNooooooooookk!
Zero chance but I ran down the sea wall, zebco cover coming off the total shit reel until it easily cut the line on a dock piling.
Same group of guys remember that event today with talk of rod and reel disintegrating, tripping and getting up … etc. None of which happened but that’s how it’s remembered.
One in the group, still very close friend, is a successful backwater guide often fishing same area we fished as kids, but from a sponsored decked out Hewes
