Took my son, brother & stepdad fishing. Dad & bro have the same bday month so I figured I'd treat them to a day of fishing. Bite was hot from the get go, lost count on how many we caught, double digits for sure. Caught a small wsb for the second time in my fishing excursions. While fishing near the bridge something heavy took my line so I tried to reel in fast but wasn't taking in any line & kept pulling me. I finally see through the water & it's a sbb, a small one at that but it was stuck on something because I could not get it above water! Finally w/help from my dad, we were able to reel in someone's old line, guessing 40lb old fishing line w/sinker & a baby bat ray was at the end of it! Rusty hook was still in its mouth but still alive! Don't know how long the poor thing was stuck like that, but it swam away & hopefully lives a longer life. Besides that it, was a great day of fishing & good quality time w/the family.
