    you won't believe what happened to me today

    I was just cruising along minding my own business , I looked to the left for just a second and all of the sudden wham something hit me in the chest , shoulder and face , I was going between 45 and 50 , it almost knocked the wind out of me ! so I whip my head around and there is nothing even close to me , then I realize that there is something behind me in my left foot well , my reflex was to jump up on my right foot to see what was in/on the ski with me , I look back and it was a 14 to 16 inch fish ,so I kicked it off the back and sat down to regain my composure , at first I thought maybe I was hit by a seagull because I almost hit one when I first went out it flew right into me but I was able to duck and miss it ..
    now tell me has anything like this ever happened to anyone else ??
    I know it sounds like BS but its true , I wouldn't have believed it if it didn't happen to me ...

    I grew up on the bay and just never heard of anybody getting hit like that , I was just glad there wasn't anyone around with a camera , I'm sure I looked pretty stupid until I figured out what was on board with me ...LOL

    Here in Missouri, we get Asian carp that go upwards of 50 lbs and jump out of the water at the sound of a boat.

    You ever read the story about the lady who was sitting in the center seat at the back of the boat, the windshield was folded over so there was nothing to stop the swordfish that jumped up right in front of the boat. The fish ended up impalling her taking her overboard and killing her.
