The Shredded Bag & The Big Bug

My son Logan & I recently went out on the Rapture for our first fishing and diving trip alone.... just he and I. He's 7 years old and now has the OK from mom. At the end of the night I had a nice bag of bugs which we hung over the side of the boat. At 3 AM I awoke to a very bumpy North East wind and decided to move the boat to a more protected cove. While maneuvering the boat to drop anchor I heard the unmistakable sound and felt the vibration of a prop entanglement. I dropped the anchor quickly knowing I'd have an early morning dive to clear the prop. In the AM I saw the cut line hanging on the cleat and realized what had happened. I cleared the prop of the shredded bag and mangled metal frame but lost the entire catch. It's not the first time this has happened. Logan suggested that I put a post-it on the steering wheel when I hang a bag of bugs over the side. Not a bad idea. I did more diving and ended up with 3 more bugs.... We released the two bigger ones including this 10.6 lbs Bug. I gave the remaining bug to my neighbor at the dock. I ended up with no bugs but LOTS of satisfaction!!! I'm full of Thanksgiving and Excitement at the prospect of sharing with Logan future adventures on the Sea we love so much. Labugan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5w7j4UPVmTI

Very cool!
I had my pb over a pot of boiling water one time. Kid walks in and the bug was spared when he forced me to drive back to the beach and release.

Re: The Shredded Bag & The Big Bug

Twice on good crawls I have caught a limit and then realized the bugs had been escaping out the bottom of the bag which was unzipped as fast as I was catching them.
