Went fishing on Thursday was fishing with feeder rod size 12 hook and hair rigged chunk off meat, When i realed in to check bait and reposition found this little fellow hanging on to the end of my hook. Just had to get a quick snap as i could'nt believe what i was seeing.

Talk about its eyes being to big for its belly.[:0]Meat was nearly an inch cube.
