Talk about your fishing stories!
Florida fisherman Solomon Rodney reeled in two apparently live AIM-9 missiles while fishing for grouper 785 feet below the surface about 50 miles south of Eglin AFB, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
One missile featured an active camera and appeared live, so Rodney let it go, the article says. The other one had a hole in the back and looked inert, so he tied it to the top of his boat and kept fishing for 10 days. It turns out that one was live, too.
