I was driving through Ohio on I-80 headed east yesterday morning and I heard a report on the radio that we all should pay attention to.

What I heard was that some guy was out perch fishing, (I'm assuming on erie) when 2 guys pulled up, pulled out a gun and proceeded to rob him. They took his wallet, phone, keys and his perch! The phone & wallet they threw into the lake. Luckily he had a second set of keys and got back to shore.

To be honest I'm surprised that this hasn't happened around here.

Guess I'll have to start carrying the Benelli with me in the Champion. That way I can shoot thugs and ducks. Either way I am covered.

And people have asked me why I fish armed. I'm not out there like the Guns of Navaronne, but alot can happen in the middle of the lake with no police around. You're on your own, and far more vulnerable than most people like to believe. Either piracy or petty criminals messing with you, it can get ugly very quickly.

snowmans quote says it all.........i don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

did these crooks get caught yet? i cant imagine someone cruising up and robbing me while fishing. the water has always seemed like the most peaceful place on earth, and something like this to happen....good to hear the guy made it to shore safely, frightened but safe.

good luck and be safe out there.
