Anglers have joked about using hand grenades to catch fish, when they're not clever enough to hook them.
But who has ever heard of an angler reeling in a live grenade?
A Nebraska angler has done just that while fishing in Wagon Train Lake. The moss-covered Vietnam-era grenade was detonated by the Nebraska State Patrol's bomb squad, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.
"It had some moss and some corrosion on it, but it still had the pin in it," said Capt. Ben Houchin of the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office. "This is the first time I've heard of a live grenade that's been located by an individual."
The Goat chimed in on the story with this: "They ended up evacuating the lake and detonating the grenade in a controlled explosion, and you just know this was the most exciting thing to happen on the lake all summer.
"Good thing they didn't snag it by the pin."
