While spin fishing a few years ago on the Perkiomen I caught a dead rooster. A few months later while fishing at night I caught an eel on the Perkiomen too. I thought it was a snake at first until I reached for the tail and it was flat and slimey.
When I was about 18 I caught a huge snapper on a worm below Lake Redman where the water dumps out of a large drain pipe. Man did I think I had a monster fish on.

I was in MN in summer 96 fishing on a pond, we'd been catching a bunch of Blue Gills and Sunnies on poppers when I went to pick up my fly and swirl and a very good fight brought a large burbot to the boat. I unfortunately didn't put my net in the boat and it broke of when I tried to bring it onboard. So I don't have a photo. 3 ducks, one on a trico, one on a caddis, and one when it tried to land on the LL and flew across the fly line, when I set the hook he broke off the approach much as a pilot would and started beating his wings and after a short climb out broke the tippet. This was when I was playing hookie from night classes during a sulphur hatch in spring 93.
