#thelittlebastard strikes again
#groundhogday !!

This is the edit of the second time, just a few days later, that we had the small fish jump in the line on the big one, this time with Jada in the chair.

This small fish was wrapped up in the line for almost two minutes and jumped in it three times - at the start, about 30 seconds after, and again at the end when you can see the line come off it. Luke thinks it was wrapped up from much earlier, and close to the start even. This time the *line* stayed connected.

Titled #thelittlebastard
#languagewarning and humorous comments this time by Adam. There is a second of silence when we see it jump when I think collectively we all are just shellshocked and can’t believe its happened again.
