Craziest Thing You've ever Seen on the water while fishing or in the outdoors
Stories lately about planes landing on highways and people seeing planes crash in water lately got me thinking about this.

I was about to step out of boat to go use bathroom. Thought I was about to step on a log, it was early morning so hard to see, up by the bank. Not a log, huge gator that did that mating ritual where the water starts to vibrate on it's back it bellows... Scared the hell out of me

What have you seen?

Last summer a guy on a wave runner fell off, the kill switch chord snapped in 1/2, the throttle got stuck while going wide open. I watched it disappear into the shoreline 1.5 mile away. Drove up to it and it was in pieces. Luckily enough was intact to tow it a mile or so to their dock/shore. It picked one of the few undeveloped areas on Lake Eufaula on that particular area of the lake to crash. I along with another group on a boat were the only people who took it remotely seriously. Drunk asses partying on the island thought it was a fricking joke.

Found a purple martin in a bass once. Always wondered how it caught it

EtA: pulled up to Spicer's landing in hackberry and a dude who looked like a wet rat was smacking around his ole lady. She had enough and beat the frick out of him.

Fishing during a storm. Heard buzzing, but we stayed anyway. Made a cast and my line stayed in the air. Loudest lightning strike ever happened immediately after. We hauled ass.

I was wade fishing in East Matagorda and some type of small bird was coming at me from across the water and was struggling to stay in the air. Came all the way into me and had kind of a rough landing into the front of my fishing shirt. It was panting pretty hard and hanging on with its feet. I moved it to my shoulder and fished another 15-20 minutes then headed back to shore and took it off my shoulder and sat it on a branch.

Once back in 80’s I was fishing at Saline Larto,right by Youngblood’s landing there was congregation of water moccasins.Must have been mating season,I would guess there was between 150 and 200.Gave me the creeps.

Saw an otter come out of the water onto the bank of a canal in DesAllemands with a 2 lb bass in its mouth. As I headed that way, he dropped it and went back into the water. Right before I got the the bass, it flopped into the water.

Had something very similar happen on Toledo Bend while practicing for the Top Six tournament. Fishing in a cove in 20 feet of water killing the big bass on a Lunker Lure. Storm blew up and felt like bee's crawling all over us and line did same thing. Then lightning hit, we just had to lay down in bottom of boat.

No way we were running out of that cove to try and get to a boat road.

My dad and I were fishing a tournament on Toledo last September and some bass came up schooling close to the bank. Something started looking weird, like how a fish does when it's hooked but we hadn't hooked any. Got over there and there were two bass stuck together, one's head inside the other one's mouth. They were just flipping over and over, I went to get my phone out to video and they came apart and swam off.

Watched a pack of coyote chase a hog through an oak bottom. Hog turned a 180 and took off past coyotes while they were sliding on ground to stop. Never knew a hog could move like that. Was in a box blind deer hunting and literally laughed out loud.

Gator hunting at night on the lower choctahatchee river which goes into the east side of Choctawhatchee bay which is the Bay in front of Destin. We hear a huge cat fight for what seemed like minutes across the river, we motor over there and it stops. Then we see a bobcat swimming across in the main channel. Guess that was the one that got its but kicked. 2 bob cats fighting makes quite the racket.

Fishing Lake Verret, passed a stump full of snakes. About 15 minutes later hear a bunch of popping. 2 ole boys unloading on 'em. We were maybe 150 yards away. About 2 minutes later my uncle is swatting snakes with his rod trying to keep them out of the boat yelling to GTFO
