I was just wondering if all/any of you have some type of personal protection while fishing at night? I do alot of my fishing at night by myself and get a little spooked sometimes. I used to have a handgun liscense but let it expire so I can't carry anymore till it's renewed. What all works for personal protection,,mace, pepper spray, big stick???? I hate fishing by myself and try to avoid it but I know there have been some crazy things happen around rivers, lakes. Last summer I was fishing under a bridge on a small river and about 2.00am a guy on a harley puls down the lane under the bridge and parks. He just sits there for a while and finally starts to take off. he tried going up a big hill and dumped the bike over on it's side in a mud hole. I didn't try to help him cause I knew he was drunk and prolly mad. Things like this kinda freak me out. Anyone else have any stories like this? How do you protect yourself?
