With the air filled with electricity fresh off a thunderstorm, one fisherman could barely get his poles in the boat to head back in, because each time he grabbed the rods, he got zapped. While him and his buddy were able to joke about it and laugh it off, it’s important to remember that electricity and water don’t mix.
