    Default spooky

    This taken from another(bass) forum...almost sounds unbeleivably has anyone ever experienced anything like this??




    "Strangest thing happened to us while fishing Vygeboom yesterday,light rain began falling(no lightning/atmospherics ),we decided to target a submerged island with crankbaits,on the first cast it started.The line (from rod tip to lure) just "floated" in the air!It suspended in an arc ,drifting upwards!!This happened about 10 times to both my son and I,then all of a sudden back to normal,SPOOKY......Have fished in all kinds of weather,all over the place,but never experienced the like before.+-15 fish for the day(2.4 kg biggest fish) "

    Mario, you would be spot on, and not a joke. That static reaction although no visible lightning could kill you. Had the same experience one time at Gubu. Hour later had a thunder/lightning storm that had me shAting my boeties, then all went still and a small twister formed on the water turning me in circles for a couple of seconds. Well that twister left the water and pulverised the forest trees as it advanced on its way. Dead calm after that. Scary and spot on spooky.

    The Aliens obviously decided that the Crankbait was the superior lifeform in the vicinity and decided to beam it up to the mothership for observation.

    P.S. Cabbage juice has a WARNING label, AGED for the AGED.

    Electricity likes me and I don't like it. Trust me it doesn't feel too good once it knocks you on your butt and you wait for your heart to start pumping again. Happened to me more than once if you can believe that.

    If this happens to me I'll crap myself a Porche and get the hell out of there.
    Fishing is just my thing. I don't know what it is but it seems that i just can't get enough of it.
