Every Angler Needs to Watch This: How to Deal With a Man Overboard [VIDEO]

If you own a boat, you should know how to handle a man overboard. 

I don’t believe I can count the times I have almost fallen out of boat. Normally, during these times I am fishing and just lose my balance. Multiply that situation by 100 and add speed and waves, and you get something close to what could happen if there is a man overboard while the boat is on plane, or at rate of high speed.

In this video by Boating Magazine, they explain in great detail exactly what you should do if this situation might happen to you.

This safety video might be one you want to share with some other boater buddies that might be out running full bore sometime this summer. You never know, the man overboard might be you and it sure would be nice if those people still in the boat knew what they were doing.
