One of my fishing partners (who shall remain nameless unless he would like to reveal himself) hooked into a Canadian Goose while casting out a crankbait recently. The goose flew into his lure while it was on its way out!
Panic ensued at both ends of the line as the bird had no idea what had happened and the angler had no intentions of reeling the bird back to the boat. Just as we were fumbling around for something to cut the line the goose somehow released itself and flew just a few yards away to recoup. Interestingly enough, about ten other geese few out to join it as if to offer protection while it came around.
