Something weird happened to us out on Fort Peck Lake that I have never witnessed before (and hope I never do again). A friend and I were in my boat fishing, I was holding my fishing pole when I got a shock. At first I wasn’t sure what happened, but when I got a shock the second time I was surprised. I told my friend and he says to me at that same moment he got shocked twice too. We both noticed our fishing poles were making a buzzing noise, just like electricity running through them. I also noticed the live well pump wasn’t working either, making a weird noise. There were also small fish jumping all around us, like something was chasing them under the water. The only dark cloud was to the south of us and it wasn’t making any threatening noises nor was it close to us. I figured I had a bad connection in my 24 volt system in the boat and was getting shocked by it. I turned all the electronics off but we still could hear the buzzing in our poles. My friend said if we feel the hairs stand up on our body’s things are going to get bad. We weren’t sure what to do, we could go to shore, start the boat and head to camp or just see what happens. This all took place in about a 5 – 10 minute span. Then the noise stopped and the live well pump started working again. As the dark cloud was getting farther away we could hear rumbling from thunder in it. We laughed and said it must not have been our time to go and continued to fish. When we got back to camp we told my wife and our other friends, who were fishing in another boat down the shore about our experience and they said they had the same one, except nobody got shocked. It was truly a weird experience.
