i was trolling the Volkov in the main deep part of the east side and somehow ended up with a small zebra mussle.

i didnt know they could catch a spinner being trolled.

has anyone else ever caught any that way or was it just a fluke?

   thanks .

it's not common but certainly happens to most of us once in a while. They can be rather annoying though as it's hard to see if they've registered a bite on the rod tip, so you can be wasting a rod trolling around with a mussel on the hook.

When drifting jig rigs for cats used to be a  big thing on Akhtuba, you had to be ever vigilant for a river mussel taking the jig bait ... that said both mussels make excellent baits at higher levels, so I rarely begrudge hooking one.
