This might be the best reason we’ve ever seen to not fish during lightning. This is as close as you hopefully will ever see lightning on the water. This makes our skin crawl. How many of you have had close encounters from lightning, buzzing rods, floating line, or worse yet — struck? Watch this video. Crazy! Thanks to Tucker Owings for sharing on his facebook page and Garrett Seagraves for driving the boat and getting them back safely.

  1. I was fishing Lake Erie during a Federation event and there was a storm in the area and when I casted out the bait was in the water and the line was floating in the air.

  2. These were guys from the Dallas Baptist University bass team. The storm blew in on them and they were trying to get in when this happened. Thankfully nobody got hurt.
