Ok so here it is, I want to hear what we all have hooked while fishing besides for fish. Rather while your line was in the water or as you were casting out. I'll start:

I have hooked one of my other rods that was on the bank while casting out, (Yes the rod ended up in the water) Took a hat OFF someones head the hard way and of cores your mormal trees rocks and tangled messes of fishing gear at the bottom of the river bed.

I've nearly landed a shopping cart, hauled multiple rods off the bottom, caught a couple roughskin newts, and i've hooked myself a time or two:lol:.

Should've called the thread 'Things you have Snagged' Now That would have raised a few eyebrows.:D
For me, I have snagged (oops) I mean hooked mostly big chunks of Oregon.

I have no idea. And it's gettin dark fast.
I guess I would have to say over the several years. Ive hooked pretty much every thing within casting distance. I would have to say the funnest thing Ive hooked other than a fish. When I was around eight years I was outside the house practicing my casting ability and I casted across the street we lived on and a volkswagon bug came zoomin by and caught my line. It took about three micro seconds and it spooled me. Ive been hooked every since.

Fishing from the South Jetty of the Columbia, I hooked into a huge Deadhead, a waterlogged 8' piling with a huge chunk of concrete at one end. Sad part is I fought the stupid thing for over 45 minutes before I got it in close enough to see what really was. On the bright side, I removed a large obstacle to boaters and gave a lot of spectators a really good laugh!

I cought my fair share of rockfish and logs. several trees. myself. the boat. my motor a time or 2. i can even catch sculping while trolling for salmon and trout. but the best thing i caught was this rod trolling for springers on the columbia. oh and i was once caught. nice treble past the barb 3/8 deep into my cheek.

BFishin caught a guys transducer this summer trolling for browns at wickiup when he cut across our lines. And i have had a 3 on at once boat fish last year when someone cut behind us too close.

A buddy caught an Antler Fish once, at Big Creek Reservoir near Newport. It was a bunch of curled up tree limbs, that looked exactly like a Buck's rack. Our sides were hurtin' cuz he fought it like it was a REAL fish!

Also...many years ago, while in charge of some boys. We were fishin' off the docks in Yaquina Bay. One of the youngin's went to sling his bait, just as a seagull swooped down and grabbed hold before it hit the water. After I stopped laughing, I had to round up a crazed bird and remove that hook from it's beak. NO EASY TASK (without suffering injury to self), let me tell you!

i had a seal run with my line for a minute because it took my fish, it stuck it's head out of the water and i tugged on it to try and make the fish budge but the seal turned it's head snapping my rod in the process
i caught a dead chinook on the upper willamette and a traffic cone

Fishing with BigDog a couple of weeks ago and as Kirkster would say "BOBBER DOWN! SET THE HOOK!" so, I set the hook and started reeling, not much of a fighter but there was some weight behind it. It was a full stainless steel water bottle. I hooked it right at the mouth thanks to the convenient handle on top.

Actually I was getting ready to cast after I had a huge birdsnest. I had taken my boots off and set them beside me and well I hooked my boot string.:lol:
