Sad to hear this news.

Those late afternoon T Storms have been intense this week. Very risky to be out in a boat during the storms. Better safe than sorry.

Florida leads the US in lightning deaths I believe..

Lighting can strike up to five miles from the storm.

There can be no warnings of the strike, other than for a tingle and then it is too late.

I think we all are guilty of fishing in storms, thinking that standing in a boat and holding a rod in the air with a metal eye on the tip will not attract lightning.

So sorry to hear about the loss of a fellow fisherman, especially when it could have been prevented.

I was in town getting some work done on my boat, bolts of lightning where smashing down like mortar shells.

This central part of the state is extremely bad. A rancher told me they lose 200 head of cattle a year from lighting.

Prayers to his family.

Lorenzo was actually from Miami but must have moved to lake placid over the years. I used to be vice president of the Homestead Hawg Hunters but left the club to go to college 5 years ago. His loss is very saddening news as he was passionate about our sport. RIP Buddy.
