Yeah no way I'd go hand to hand with a heron.  

If one picks up the #10 lb walleye that I have been waiting for, I will jump on that thing and choke it out !  I am sure there will be blood, from both of us.:grin:

"Had a few more blowups, got the top water on them again and a dang heron flew off the bank and went after my top water, just was able to get it away from the bird, reeled it back in and waved my arms and yelled at that worthless bird and was able to spook it away."

It's a good thing you didn't have to mess with that heron, they're extremely dangerous to handle, strong quick neck with a five inch dagger (bill) at the end.  One of the few animals that wildlife rehabilitators don't want to deal with.  All you could have done is cut the line and let it go with your lure. 

Wonder what the state record is for a Heron? To bad you lost it. Might have been in the record books. Maybe a wire leader next time...
