So went out with the family today to try our luck on sparrow, got one bite. It took it all.... was away from my hole and saw my rod getting a hit ran to get it, and watched it go down the hole. So if anyone catches a berkley rod well enjoy it. Cant believe the only bite of the day took my rod.

Now I have an excuse to buy a new one..

Yup! Stepped outside the hut to take a leak.... came back in and was missing a rod. Did not get the chance to even see it go down. Just disappeared!

I lost 2 rods fishing for pike right in front of me once. Had a bite on one and before I could set the hook it was in the hole and I guess it wrapped around the second one or it was a different fish the other rod was gone. Sucks but it is what it is.

It can happen easy! My buddy went outside to check his tip up a couple of years ago and I had to rescue his rod from a jumbo lol.

Well that sucks. On the lighter side, at least you had your family there to witness the event and the story will go on for years of how the big one got away...

After hearing about all the lost rods, I started to tie mine to the rode holder in hopes that the rod holder will get stuck in the hole.

Last year on little lake a guy came over to chat with me as the bite was slow. As we were talking i saw his rod bouncing so off he ran. It was glare ice and no snow so i thought he was going to break his neck trying to get to it. Just before he slid up to his hole down she went rod holder and all. He wasn't to happy about it but about a half hour later hes jigging and yells out he has one on. Up comes his rod he's hooked into with the thieving pike still hooked up! Pretty funny at the time

This has happened to all of us. I lost many rods down the hole. Now I got smart I brought ice hole cover. Has a hole in the center for you line and is about 16" diameter. So when rod is left unattended it will not go down the hole. Bought them at cabelas. Best money ever spent.

Icehog, good idea. It will pay for it's self the first time it saves the rod from going down.

we were fishing a lake near white river 2 summers ago jigging for trout,a guy in our group uses a stick to jig...he gets a hit and the trout took the stick right out of his hand....after lunch we are trolling and we see the stick floating on the surface...buddy grabs the stick and the fish is still on,he brought up a 27 lb trout!!!
