A professional fisherman got a big surprise as he tried to launch his boat at Lake Sam Rayburn to practice for a fishing tournament this past weekend.

 

Eric Jackson, of Rock Island, TN, told 12News his two-year-old Dalmatian, Bodi, stepped on the gear shift switch, putting the 38-foot RV in reverse. 

 

Jackson says he was on the back bumper unloading his boat when the RV began backing into the lake.

Jackson had been working to launch his boat at the ramps at the Umphrey Family Pavillion of Highway 255.

He was planning a practice day before the Fishing League World Wide 2019 when the mishap occurred.

In the video, Jackson can be seen trying to run around the side of the RV to stop it from going into the water.

That's what I thought but apparently this RV may have a touch button on the drivers side door. There's actually some people who have a plastic cover on it just in case of an accidental touch.

Left my keys in the truck running something into my boss's house and the dog locked me out.  As much as we tried for the better part of 2 hours we could not get him to step on the button.  So we started drinking and when we came back the car was unlocked!

 

Lesson learned
