struggling with a serious sinus infection I was in bed early last night, so up and awake around 5:30. I grabbed one rod, a sand spike, my chair and some fishbites. Fog was thick this morning, but I've seen worse. I should've known better when I saw the lightning flashing through the fog in the distance. But I decided to give it a go and try anyhow. I walk onto the beach and see something funny looking on the beach....oops, it was her legs up in the air....nothing like some good soft core porn first thing in the morning. I walked down the beach a hundred yards or so from the two young lovers and set up. With a fireball rig tipped with about 1/2" of BWFB I cast out just behind the breakers...The thunder and lightning was getting closer and louder, I decided to wait it out. Now the rain starts coming, I decided to check my bait...hasn't been touched. This time I cast out further As soon as I set my rod in the spike it starts going nuts. I pick it up and feel something picking at my bait...can't set the hook on anything though....Now its pouring out and the thunder and lightning is all around me....time to pack up before I become a fishing on the beach during a lightning storm statistic. I walk all the way back to the house (4th house from the water) and come inside to get dry clothes on.....Ugh DE sucks, gotta display the license...I check my chair where I had it tucked in...its not there, now sitting here in dry clothes (not wanting to put on wet clothes again) I rip off my shirt and run back out to the beach where I was sitting and there it was laying in the sand......I've been watching the puddles on the street waiting for the rain to stop so I can head back out and try to get some bait for Sharking with Ben tonight......looks like its finally letting up. With the quickness of the bites, hopefully I'll have some nice kingfish heads and carcasses to fish with for big toothy ones tonight.

You goof! Stay outt'a the lightning Jeff!!

Hope Ben lets you tie into a nice one!

Make sure you stand close enough to him though, not sure how far his Chark mojo aura extends out.
