    What weird or strange things have happened to you while just enjoying a day fishing: For me it was when I was around 10 years old. a friend and I were fishing a local lake for carp. We were talking about other peoples fishing stories. We got to talking about fresh water eels, neither of us had ever caught or even seen one, but we heard stories about them. After 10 minutes or so my friend hooked into a fish. After a short fight he got it to the surface and pulled it on to the shore ans it was a hugh eel, like 5 feet long. weird...

    we were fishing through a lightning storm once on the river, seen an extremely rare occurance of Ball-Lightning. i know it may sound kooky but 3 of us seen it! the initial flash caused us to blink but we then seen this bright blue/yellowish, softball sized glowing ball shoot across the sky on the opposite side of the river just below the clouds. was a little slower than regular lightning. i'd guess it went 150-200 yards and dissapeared.

    Perhaps God listens more when you fish. Plus he has a great sense of humor. Imagine the dude who caught a shark outside of St. Louis. It was over 9' long.

    In the early 1900s a large shark swam way up a tidal river in New Jersey, all the way to fresh water and killed several people swimming.
