Not a supernatural story but very scary.
My young son and I were fishing a small lake fenced off from a large private estate and screened by a row of poplar trees. Shortly after dusk we heard a volley of gunshots behind the poplars; some one hundred feet away. All the anglers fled to the car park and we were wondering if it was safe to sneak back to retrieve kit. Shortly afterwards the proprietor drove up and explained that a well refreshed shooting party had become lost on the estate and not realising that the poplars were a boundary, shot at some deer. Lucky they were good shots and hit the animals not the anglers.

I have fished mostly solo for well over 50 years often at times being the only one on the lake both here and in France and I its never bothered me in fact I go so far as to say I prefer it
and I totally dont believe in ghosts its all peoples imagination
hand on heart I have only ever been scared once that was at a French lake in the middle of nowhere
(bastd place to find ) there was a large forest up to the lakes edge on the bank I was fishing
only person on the lake was me it was around 02.30 I had not long had a fish and was just starting to drop off when I heard a commotion behind me branches snapping my 1st thought was it was maybe a cow pushing thru ? so jumped out of bed grabbed my machetti just to be on the safe side and turned on my head light to see and scare off whatever it was ?
by now from the noises it was clear it was a largish animal suddenly I got a glimpse it was a large Boar I had heard these things are not to be messed with as they can charge you and break a leg at this point probably for the first time I was proper heart thumping scared
I grabbed my stove and picked up a load of deadwood and used it to get a fire going sat up all night outside hoping the poxy thing would bugger off
in the morning the farmer came round he could not speak much english but I managed to explain it was a hog he got very excited and I managed to understand he was going to shoot it that evening just as it was getting dark I heard gunfire
following day he came round grinning from ear to ear explaining in sign language he had got it then 2 days later I had just finished packing up and the old boy had watching me he then grabbed my arm and took me to his house the few hundred yards away where he tried to give me this bloody great big joint of the butchered hog !
but I declined his house was full of flies never seen so many he had these sticky fly strips hanging down and they were completely black with hundreds of bluebottles stuck to them
lol

My explanation:-
You or your mates had Curry the night before and there were some underpants that needed cleaning!
So, yeah, your gas explosion theory was correct.

Castle Leslie in Co Monaghan..Well known for its ghosts who haunt the place.
Very scary place to stay,and fishing into dark is spooky with a capital S.
Woke up one night while staying in the castle to loud bangs that seemed to echo all through the place,then next day being told it must have come from 'the crying room'.Apparently,there was a young boy murdered in his bed,and his ghost still wails every night.I needed a pi55 soon after and no way was I walking down a long hall to the toilet,so I used an antique chineese vase as a substitute

Wake Lake, Epping forest ..

Just never again, nothing spooky as such, just nutters and i mean nutters !! People in Druids gear chanting , weirdo's just walking in the forest around 2am, the odd couple making some noise, was busier at night than in the day.

Not a spooky story but definitely an odd event that happened to me a couple of winters ago,

Me and three mates were fishing a water in the colne valley. Although it was winter it wasnít stupidly cold so we were up and about around 11pm is. Suddenly there was a huge and I do mean huge bang. The kind that isnít just deafeningly loud but that you also feel the shock wave from..

We all jumped up and my first thought was a plane crash as we are under the Heathrow night flight path. We scanned the surrounding hills but no sign of anything. We waited for the inevitable sirens, but nothing. No distant smoke etc.

Perhaps we thought it was a gas explosion in one of the houses that overlooks the valley, but nothing. We wondered if it was a sonic boom but Iíve heard those in France and you always here the jet noise afterwards and who flys supersonic over West London?

We turned on the radio at listened to the London news stations. Nothing. I checked Twitter. Nothing. For a week afterwards I read the local news websites but I never found a mention of it anywhere. Itís not like itís the middle of nowhere. Itís a dirty great earth shaking boom at 11pm on a sat night inside the m25. Very strange and we never discovered what it was but it sure as hell was no firework.

I use to fish, a private estate lake near where I lived before moving into London. Which was a brilliant lake I use to be the only person fishing 90% of the time and I managed nearly every fish out of there twice. I use to live on the place it was brilliant. It was one well moon lit night with clear sky's. It was about 11.30pm when i was sat in my brolly, having a smoke. All of the sudden I see a reflection of a person on my side of the lake, go right above the reflection of my brolly I turn round and there was no one there but I still see the shadow walking along the side of the lake and i started shouting and got no reply. I was really what the f*** could that have been. Next thing I get a run and when i was playing the fish which turned out too be a 20 odd pound mirror I keep looking behind as i was scared as f***. But noone appeared.
