Rockets blast off when fish bite line!

Pt 10768

Mt. Holly Mayor’s Office: “My Rocket-Wielding Blast-Off Ice Fishing Tip-Up” via BB.

This week, I outfitted my ice fishing sledge with a rattle-reel, a super-sketchy homebrew detonator (the trigger involves a guitar pick) and a launch pad. Now, I know when a fish bites because a rocket launches. No one lost a hand today, but we did lose 2 rockets. Thanks to the dudes at mission control: Dave, Jake and Jeff.
