Who's Spiking the Ponds?


Via Death By 1000 paper cuts comes a disturbing story of interest to wading anglers.

A man wading in the water at the Green Lake Boating Center in Seattle felt a “sharp jab in his foot” Sunday while wading with his family. Pat Boltz reached down and found a metal rod. The rod was sharpened by a machine on the end and it hadn’t gotten there by accident. Nor were the other 38 “spikes”, 2-3 ft. long, found by Seattle police divers.

It sounds like something right off of the screen from Snopes.com but here is a link to the Seattle Times story about the painful discovery. We hope our friends in the Pacific North West quite literally watch their step.

Some initials of different organizations come to mind that would be low enough to do this. P**A is one such.

If they catch them, hook their privates and use them for bait fishing.
