Fishing rod or lighning rod?

7 posts in this topic

Been caught out a few time when lightning was in the general, not immediate, area. Common sense says get thee to the beach asap. But what are the actual dangers (not aware of any yak related lightning deaths) and what can be done to minimize them if you do get caught?

I'm with John, no fishing is worth the risk of a hit. Get off the water, have a rest and watch from the car. S

 

I would estimate your risk of fishing, in a yak or fishing from a beach, during an electrical storm as extremely high to take a hit. S
