Ok, it’s not really rocket powered, instead the rocket acts more like an alert system for when a fish takes your bait.
For obvious reasons the rocket cannot be hooked up to the line on the reel and send your catch flying in to the air.
Well you might think it’s impossible, or highly improbable I guess, because it happened on a lake in Minnesota. Two fisherman thought they had the catch of a lifetime when nearly every line in their hut started pulling hard. A few minutes later, the unthinkable happened, when a live human hand presented it self through their hole in the ice.
I can only imagine the muffled screams the diver must have heard at the time, and I hope this fishing hut came with a bathroom. The diver was live released.
