    Fata Morgana

    [ranking: 11]
    "Fata Morgana. I'm Reddit illiterate and can't share the link that I want to, but it's a mirage where you see a ship upside down. It's creepy as f*ck, you'll see the ship sailing along, and then you see it upside down, floating above the ocean."

    Something Pulled The Boat Along

    [ranking: 1]
    "My dad and I are fishing off the Florida Keys. We have our anchor out and had been fishing for about an hour. 15 minutes later the boat gets bumped and we rock a little bit, my dad jokingly saying "Looks like jaws is after us better stay away from the edges." 10 seconds after him saying that the boat begins moving backwards: we are being towed by our anchor line that's in the water. Whatever has it is now dragging the boat backwards slowly getting faster and our boat is getting pulled under too. Next thing I hear is "No f*cking way" as my dad drops his pole runs from the front to the back grabs a knife and cuts the anchor line.
    "After that we decided that fishing was not in the cards that day."

    Knowing Some Large Predators Exist Out There

    [ranking: 3]
    "I do a lot of night fishing off of South Carolina and Florida. I get a lot of fish that are bitten in half by sharks. Some of them had to have been very, very large. When you reel in a large sportfish's head like some kind of sequel to The Old Man and the Sea and realize the shark is close to half the size of your boat miles and while you're miles offshore, essentially in the middle of nowhere, you get more than a little freaked out."

    A Creepy Voice Leads To A Daring Rescue

    [ranking: 24]
    "Freshwater boater here, I typically hunt and fish the Arkansas River, where I'm at it's a huge body of water. One day while fishing in some lazy back water off the Arkansas we (my GF and I) heard a faint, very faint raised voice. We stopped and listened intently. The wind and noises of the water lapping against the side of the boat made it impossible to make out what they were saying but it sounded serious. So we stowed the fishing gear and made towards the sound. When we came out of the backwater area towards the main channel we could see a capsized boat with two people clinging to it desperately screaming for help. A pretty dangerous situation, they appeared to have no life vests on and the river was carrying them away. We made our way over and helped the couple into our boat and made for shore so I could go back and retrieve the boat. Another boater saw what was happening and made his way to the capsized boat. The couple were older and clearly exhausted from their ordeal. From talking with them they told me they had hit a sandbar going top speed (was only a 25 HP motor and a 16 ft boat) and when the boat suddenly stopped water swamped over the stern and turned the boat over.
    After dropping the couple off on the bank with my GF to rest I helped the other boat tow the boat to the bank. When we got it there we managed to get enough of the boat on the bank so we could turn it over and begin dewatering it. Once it was seaworthy again I towed it back to the boat ramp for them and they were able to get it back on a trailer and they left after thanking us profusely."

    The Non-Sound Of Wind

    [ranking: 14]
    "Most amazing is the non-sound of wind.
    "When you're on shore, wind rustles through the trees, moves wind chimes, makes birds chirp, etc. Way off shore none of those sounds exist. It's very eerie to feel the wind but have it make no noise. Just a force that moves across your skin and then gently leaves without a sound."

    Blast Off!

    [ranking: 12]
    "I was fishing in 17 foot Mohawk canoe off the main bridge in Titusville, FL. About 2000, my kids were small. It's teeming with fish in that area and I headed for a trough that NASA cut out to build the fuel railroad system out to the launch area. It holds black drum as well as other tasties.  
    "I have a trolling motor on the side of the canoe and I head for my spot down the south shore. Over to my left, just as I arrive at the south end of the trough, I see a pod of manatee in the water about 75 yards away. I have a little camera stowed away and I decide to get some up close pics for the kids.  
    "I turn west into the middle of the lagoon area and head over shallow water and grass beds with my trolling motor turned to 5, top speed. I notice it appears VERY shallow immediately ahead of me and I cut the motor quickly to 0.  
    "That's the last thing I remember before the loudest noise, that came from all around me. Water exploded. Around and under my 75lb canoe with 150lb me in the back.  
    "The front of my canoe went up at over a 45% angle and the rear of my canoe, with me in it, came off the surface of the water some amount such that my battery came off the floor. In the front of my canoe, all my tackle and such was launched into the air. I remember seeing a single large pinfish (not mine but one belonging in the water) arcing over the whole mess as I gripped the gunnels. 
    "It's not obvious what happened to me for a minute. I was so afraid and so vulnerable and unsure if it would happen again.  
    "I reattached things back at my trolling motor (wires had come loose, I think) and went to the shoreline (where the railroad passed) and got out and tried to piece my equipment back together and my experience.  
    "The pod of roughly 21 manatees (number from ranger) had come into the lagoon area recently and as it turns out, they have a similar danger signal to beavers--they slap the surface of the water. When that many do it, and it's in 2 feet of water, and they are really frightened by my entry into the area, it can almost violate the laws of bowel physics.  
    "Trust me I know."
