Frank Taylor | The Robesonian No one was fishing Friday afternoon at the High Hill boat launch area in Lumberton, but evidence of the bad luck facing some previous anglers was clear. Several fishing lines with bobbers and other tackle hang from electrical lines paralleling the N.C. 72 bridge over the Lumber River with several trailing into the water, apparently with hooks, lines and sinkers still attached. Jodie Owen of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission told The Robesonian on Friday that the agency’s engineering experts don’t think the situation poses any electrical hazard, but boaters passing under the lines should be careful to avoid becoming tangled and potentially hooked. She said someone will eventually have to be sent out to remove the lines.
