So today I was shore catfishing for blue cats on the tidal potomac and caught 4, 5 pounders, a 14 pounder, and a 40 pounder (I'm pretty stoked about them). On the other hand my commrade was having TERRIBLE luck, so for him 3 missed hook sets, 2 break-offs, and an old muddy tee-shirt later he finally hooked up with something, but halfway in it came lose. So when we looked at the end of the line to see if it was curly (broken knot) or shredded (broken line). The end of the line still had a perfectly intact knot tied on, and was just missing the circle hook on it as if the fish untied the knot, removed the hook, and re-tied the knot perfectly in the 10 seconds he was fighting it. How is this possible? Can someone's bad luck really break the boundaries of physics?
