Somebody mentioned that on the DSM board, and pbmang mentioned that in the first year, they had a lot of tags come unattached from the mono they were hung with. I didn't notice it until I was posting the pictures that evening, but then again, I didn't exactly look that fish over. I had 3 rods out, and the wind was pushing me over the brushpile, so I was lucky to even get the fish in the picture. ;D
Now, the possibility still stands that it was a stick in the water, that coincidentally lined up perfectly with the location y'all tag fish.
