This guy just landed a big pike with his bare hands. Watch and see how long it takes to release itself.
They make landing nets and cradles for a reason, and we still insist on grabbing some really big fish with our bare hands.
As the venerable Bill Dance says: “Don’t do that.”
Here’s but one reason why.
Answer: The fish got bounced off of the rocks; the fisherman and his cell phone got dunked and looked bad doing it.
Question: Why do you use a net?
We can laugh if we want, but all those who have had a nice fish rip itself out of your hands and drop in the bottom of the boat or on the shore raise your hands.
