Now this is a fishing story these guys will be telling for a while. And they'll have the reel to prove it.
LakeForkGuy posted this video to Youtube; it shows a massive stingray, weighing over 100 pounds, taking not only the bait on the end of a Terez Rod, but the rod and reel as well.
Oh, and the Shimano Stella SW10000 reel is worth around $1,000.
More great fishing videos for you
It's very unfortunate that the angler in the video slipped on the dock and lost his entire setup, including a GoPro Hero 3. But this is a good fishing story because these men were able to snorkel around the area and actually find the rod and reel, in almost perfect condition.
Have anything to add to this story?
