Tucker Owings said he and another unidentified individual who was on the boat literally felt what he described as "static on our rods." They decided to head for the ramp and call it a day.

"Suddenly, lightning sizzled through the air just a few yards in front of their boat," KPHO-TV reports.

"I am one of the youngest professionals in the fishing industry and just learned a very important lesson," he told the news station. "I am thankful God protected us."
