11 Dumb Ways Anglers Lose Fish

We’ve all lost a fish from time to time. Some due to a smart fish biting the line or breaking it off around a structure. Also there is the fish that throws the hook in the middle of the fight. Then there are the dumb things we do to lose the fish. You know those stories that never make it back to shore. So we asked a number of our Coastal Carolina Fisherman contributing anglers what they had seen as the “dumbest way to lose a fish.
