Holy Crash, Boom, Bam Batman; these are some nasty fish

Northern Lake Squirrels= Muskies; Southern Lake Squirrels=Sturgeons

Florida Boater Knocked Unconscious by Leaping Sturgeon
ROCK BLUFF, Fla. — A woman was injured over the weekend by a leaping sturgeon, the latest incident involving the flying fish on Florida's Suwannee River, officials said.

Tara Spears, 32, was knocked unconscious by the animal on Sunday while boating on the river north of Rock Bluff, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported.

In April, a leaping sturgeon severely injured a 50-year-old woman from St. Petersburg who was riding a personal watercraft on the Suwannee River. She suffered a ruptured spleen and had three fingers reattached by surgeons, but she lost her left pinkie finger and a tooth.

Grandma, tell us the story about the time a fish chomped off your fingers, that's our favorite. People get into horrific car accidents and never have their spleen ruptured; this woman had it happen to her by a kamikaze fish. I don't care how much people like eating the eggs of these terrorists; I say legalize shotgun fishing on the Suwannee River.
