I can never seem to hold on to one long enough to get to close to it.I seem to have this uncontrollable desire to wear them out night fishing.You would think a guy would wake up and quit wearing them because when they blow off my chances of finding them aren't good.Mille Lacs owns many of mine.

I lost my luckiest hat ever. It was a denim "Southern States" feed cap. I caught my trophy walleye, 30.5" 11+ pounds, in it; I fished amateur in the PWT in it; I caught so many walleyes with it on my head it is almost disgusting. Well, it was indeed getting rather disgusting, to be sure.

So one hot sunny no-wind June day on Mille Lacs I gave it a wash over the gunwale before landing. I hung it over my truck antenna, resting on the hood with the antenna through the adjustment hole in the back, while inside at a bar and grill for beer and burger. It was not there when I came out.

This particular feed cap was out of production for years now. It came from a grain elevator out east in Southern Maryland from an old friend of the family - the elevator had since been bought out by Cargill or ADP or something. I was heartbroken - they had mailed me luck with that hat.

Well, then my mother died last October. While sifting through her belongings, I found a brand new, unworn denim "Southern States" feed cap. It fits just like the old one. I think it will be lucky - no, I know it will. grin smiley

Anyone else have a lucky "feed cap"? You know if you do.

You guys would be surprised how long a hat will float. I bet I have had 20 hats fly out of my boats over the years and most have been recovered before they sink.

I have a lucky Twins visor I wear to poker.

Lucky Jigs and Lures but no Lucky fishing hat!
