Landed an octopus fishing from a bridge in the Florida Keys one evening. I was going to let it go but a couple Cuban guys fishing nearby eyes lit up so I gave it them. Pulpo is actually pretty good if prepared right.
2nd biggest surprise was landing about a 20 lb King Salmon in the Klawock River on POW island in Alaska. The river had less water flowing than the Provo in Summer. Supposedly the rivers are just too small for king salmon runs on the island.

I caught a 20 inch long needle fish surf fishing out of san diego, went to pick it up by the beak and it chomped down on my finger and shredded it. The salt water felt swell in the open cuts. I will take walleye any day. Fishon

As a teenager, my friend and I went to visit my grandparents in Kansas. We were fishing a small gravel pit pond for largemouth bass. I hauled what felt like an enormous log, but when it came to shore it was actually a very big and unhappy snapping turtle. I dropped the rod and we ran.

a long time ago I caught an eight inch walleye out of the Jordan river while reeling a spinner tipped with a worm. Wasn't expecting that at all. Also I have seen kids catch big fat bullfrogs by hand on the river as well.

Smallmouth at yuba.

I've caught a ton of smallmouth downstream from Yuba all the way to almost DMAD. (I probably shouldn't be mentioning it.) I believe that DWR planted some smallmouth in Yuba, but a bunch of them made it downstream into the lower sevier. I haven't caught any recently, but I know people who have.

In 1996 or 1997 I caught a nice big brown out of a pond near Willow Park Zoo in Logan. I was carless at the time so I had to haul it home on the Logan public bus. I got a lot of looks from people on the way home.

While on the LP showing my brother that a fly line could be cast left handed to the spot I wanted him to start his drift( I'm a righty), I hooked up on my first trout left handed. But the suprise came much later on that trip when I landed my first Mountain White fish. It was 20 inches give or take.

On Willard fishing for Wipers, my buddy lost my $7 rapala somehow, pissed at him. 10 minutes later, caught a wiper with my rapala, the wiper had wraped itself around some line line, that had my rapala on the end of it.
I still take him fishing, he's got the senior get in free or discount for the parks.

CoolSet up my comfy chair and put a line out into Salt Lake, near the marina. Caught about 20 dimbulbs who felt it was their obligation to laugh at me and tell me there were no fish in Salt Lake. Wish I would have thought to bring along a few trout to keep in my cooler.

Actually, my most interesting/surprising catch here in Utah was a 15 inch crappie I caught around the island in Deer Creek.

damn TD i knew there were a few crappie in there but the only ones ive seen were silver dollar sized that got puked up by trout ice fishing, i guess there are a few good ones in there. do you think they will ever flourish there?

CoolI caught that one about two years ago and it was the first one I had seen. Heard of others getting them but no first hand "reliable" reports. After posting pics of mine and checking in with DWR folks I learned that they have shown up in netting surveys and a few on anglers lines.

Doubt they will ever become a major part of the biomass in Deer Creek. Too many other top predators already in place...and just not enough forage for all the species in the lake. They occupy a different level than most of the other predators...besides trout...but with no significant supply of small fishies they more often serve as prey rather than as predators. Just like at East Canyon the trout find newly hatched crappies to be fine fodder so a lot of them disappear into the food chain before reaching slab size.

I was fishing Illipah reservoir west of Ely NV one evening after dark with my nephews. We were throwing flies with a bubble on spinning rods. I cast & it seemed like the bubble took a long time hitting the water & when I started to retrieve it felt funny so I just cranked it in & found a bat on my wooly worm. I beat the thing against the water until it came off the hook. It was dead by then.

  My buddy Chad caught Wynonna's big brown beaver at Jordanelle, broke the line. About 1/2 hour later I pulled in some fishing line that I got hooked on. His spinner was attached to the line that hooked the beaver! Weird, usually when a beaver decides to leave it takes everything and you never see it again...
My most surprising fish? hmmm, an old memory of catching a 24 1/2 inch brook trout while trespassing on private land when I was younger. They were swimming around right in front of me like they didn't care that I was even there.
I do not promote trespassing and I'm glad I didn't get caught but it's one of my greatest memories. I caught a big fish but was too afraid to tell anyone about it because I didn't want to get in trouble. I released it after a couple pics.

Damn I'm still jealous! Could that be the private pond that had brook trout and rainbows that isn't private anymore and only holds trashy tiger trout and cutts?

Most surprising thing I ever caught was a duck or goose as a kid. I was fishing a small pond on the family farm using flies and this bird just scooped it up.
