Well, I guess I'll start and go ahead and ruin my reputation here right off the bat. :smile2: I was 20 or 21 years old and fishing a local lake with some apartments around it in my hometown of W.R. GA. I'd fished there several times that summer - always at night, and always until morning. I was fishing with chicken livers in an area of the lake where I could see two small islands about 50 yards in front of me. That night, I got a channel cat that was my PB of about 9 lbs and had him in the cooler. As morning came( here's where it gets strange!), it was a little foggy, but I could still clearly see the island...and I see this...well guys...it was a "hump" moving across the surface. Remember, this was about 50 yards from me, I have perfect vision and I can clearly see this large, turtle-like hump moving about 2mph across the lake. Only, it's way up out of the water - it's no turtle. It has no head up front - not a deer. A giant hostess cupcake maybe? I rub my sleepy eyes and blink them alot and look again...and it's still there. Well, it's heading for the island closest to me, and I think - ok, when this thing gets to the island, it will crawl out on land and I'll get to see what it is. . . . . When it gets to the island, the "hump" tilts forward, and in the same motion goes down, water gurgling all around it and two..... now, I know about now you think I'm nuts. And you probably think this story isn't going to be able to get any stranger, but trust me, it's about to get totally sci-fi X-files weird... so, water was gurgling, the hump tilts forward, and in the back two large "fins" raise up out of the water and follow the tilting hump as it submerges not two feet from the island. I stood there for about 5 minutes watching where it went down. Then, I gathered up my gear, my rod, the cooler with the cat in it, and went to the truck. I cranked up the truck, locked the doors, drove slowly out of the apartment complex and never, EVER fished there again at night. True story. I couldn't make up anything better if I tried. So, what's the strangest thing you've seen/heard/experienced while catfishin'?
