Lightning strikes on open water ??
Are any of you folks concerned about lightning when you're out on the open water, such as the middle of PWS? If so what do you do to deal with it?
Absolutely I'm concerned with lightning strikes while on the water. I deal with it by not being on the water during lightning events. Folks can call me a "fair weather fisherman" if they want, but I'm out there to have a good time, so I do my very best to limit my "OH CRAP!" moments.

I have been in one really bad t-storm in NE Montana - whoever isn't concerned has never been in one.
I think that it is less of a concern up here because we don't have very many lightning storms.
If you get in one - duck and hide.
