Isn't that what makes fishing and live, for that matter, that much better? I mean the surprise is a lot of what fishing is all about anyway... JMHOyeah i remember mine; I was about 15 years old (circa 1982) and we were living on a 100 acre lake in Central MO. I used to take my boat (or canoe) to my friends house to catch the bus instead of walking the almost one mile. I was on my way home, and wind was up a bit so just threw out my top water rapala jerkbait, like you in open water and just let the wind push my and trolled towards the other end of the lake. Out in the middle, bam it was on.
