Often the truth is stranger than fiction. A few years ago there was a lady angler severly injured by a flying fish on Fort Gibson Lake. Her name is Charlotte and she has fished bass tournaments for years. On this particular tournament she was running at high speed across the lake when a spoonbill weighing over 20lb decided to go airborn just as Charlette blasted by the fish. The result was a high speed impact directly into Charlette's upper body. Try to imagine a 60+ mph impact with a 20+ lb object. To my knowledge this was the first and only time an incident like this has happened on Gibson. As the spoon population increases, and they are, the odds of a second incident will increase. If you run high speed on Gibson be prepared to "duck and cover!"
