Here’s What Happens When Landing a Fish Goes Very, Very Wrong

landing a fish

Every fisherman has had something go wrong while landing a big catch at some point in their fishing career.

But these two have a moment much scarier than most.

Watch how quickly things go south when these guys try to gaff in a huge fish that just doesn’t want to be landed. Don’t try this at home!

Yikes! That was definitely a scary moment! The guy is lucky he didn’t get tangled in the line and get dragged under or worse. At least he was able to get back to the boat safely.

I feel lucky now the worst thing I’ve had happen to me was hook in the hand while landing a largemouth bass once.

It just goes to show, keep your wits about you whenever you are fishing or out on the water. You never know when a potentially dangerous situation will arise.
