I was out night fishing Saturday night on the Ohio. At around 2-3am, I kept spotting something huge on my fish finder that kept hanging around under the boat. I dropped my lines over the side (with bluegill for bait), but nothing. I eventually casted the lines back out like I normally do and kicked back to relax. A few minutes later, WHAM!!! I feel this hard impact and water sprays strait up from the back of the boat!!! I'm pretty sure it attacked the motor (which was lifted up and barely touching the water). No, I'm not telling a "Fish Story" here, this really did happen!! Whatever it was, it was big and didn't like my boat. lol... I quickly decided it was time to find a new spot down river. I've been trying to run down in my mind what it could have been without letting my imagination get the best of me. Maybe a large beaver? I did see a few beaver out there that night and I've had them get kinda close and splash, but never seen one attack a boat motor before. Maybe a beaver with brain damage caused by too many chemicals in the water? lol... I don't know, but it certainly made me nervous enough to move. It wasn't a log or anything bumping the boat (there was barely any current at all and the water was free of floating objects). Whatever it was, it hit hard and it hit on purpose!!! ?????????????
