Finally figured out how to post a picture, thanks Bruce!! All I had to do was download a resizing app from the App Store on my phone and then just followed the instructions for the image hosting. The picture was fish that hit both rods that I was running on a rigger last Sunday. I had one rod stacked 30' above the other. I thought it was worthwhile to share the photo .

Similar experience on a port rigger with a spoon popping and a line break. Starboard rigger with a SWR flasher/fly trips with fish netted and both spoon and fly in its mouth. Interesting that the same fish hit two different types of presentations within seconds. I'd say that fish really like Pro King UV Purple spoons.

I just had a double on the same rod. In 230 ft had a spoon at 130 and a slider on that rod. Laker hit bottom spoon. King hit slider.
That was a fun one.

That's pretty cool Tony. I don't blame that fish for grabbing both of those spoons...they sure look good to me!

Bet it was and super cool!

Happened to us some years ago and one of our friends said same. Was so odd, i netted the king on the slider but still felt something on the main line but thought there was another fish tangled on another line when lo and behold another king, approx a 8 to 10 pounder and approx a 12 pounder. Was a great experience.

Put both in the same net, a large net but man those were heavy.

Very cool. we had that happen a few times on Lake michigan over the years. Always a coho.

In florida one time we were drifting in 9ft of water 3 of us in the boat. I watched as 1 guy got hit then the other guy got hit and as one lifted his rod the others went down(they were fishing opposing sides of the boat). I smiled and realized what was going on, neither of them noticed. It would have made a great abbott and costello skit. Up came a nice 5lb gag grouper with two hunks of cut bait in its mouth complete with hooks. Wasn't sure how to apply to the limit :)

Very cool.
I had a weird one with a twist to it happen a couple of days ago.
I was wading a shoreline and caught a little yellow bass on a dressed single hook bladebait. As I dropped both the fish and lure in the water the fish hit the lure again hooking himself in the corner.
Same fish caught twice with one cast.
