Fisherman Reels in Live Missile

Boy, that would be one way to go out. Take a cast on a nice and sunny day, reel in and then boom!


On Monday June 8th of 2009, commercial fisherman Solomon Rodney hooked an air-to-air missile in the Gulf of Mexico.

He ended up keeping the missile on his boat for 10 days straight, then brought it to shore at Madeira Beach, Florida.

A bomb squad was called in from MacDill Air Force Base and dismantled the missile in an empty parking lot.

The bomb squad said the missile was very corroded from floating in saltwater for a long time. They said it was live and in a very unstable state.

Now that’s one scary story of a fisherman, that’s something you don’t hear everyday. Glad Rodney is ok, hope he has safer fishing days in the future. I’m still flabbergasted!
