He brought the missile ashore Monday evening along with his 5,000 pounds of grouper. Rodney figured he'd keep the inert missile as a souvenir.
Only one problem: It was live.
After Rodney came ashore, emergency officials summoned a bomb squad from MacDill Air Force Base to a marina off the Tom Stuart Causeway where Rodney had docked.
"This is a live air-to-air missile," Pinellas sheriff's spokeswoman Marianne Pasha said Monday evening. "It is 8 feet long, and the MacDill team is dismantling it."
