One of the last things you expect when you go fishing, is for what you’re fishing to jump out of the water and bitchslap you in the face.
A Bradenton man got the royal treatment as far as that was concerned from a catfish he was wrestling with while out on the water a few months back. Locked in battle, he jerked on his pole, and the fish exploded out of the water landing spine-first in the poor bastard’s eye. Kory Williams, 29, was the victim, and he has gone through the last two and a half months blind and unable to work as a result, according to the Bradenton Herald. Fortunately, his eyesight should come back with time.
That’s Florida for you, folks … where even the fishing can screw you up for life.
